Children's Theatre this weekend

Classic adventure, hysterical farce, madcap comedy, and an incredible cast! Don't miss Walpole Children’s Theatre’s Summer Production of Robin Hood and his Merry Men! Get your tickets for this show now!

Prince John has decreed that the citizens of Nottingham pay weekly taxes or face the penalty of death. His decrees are enforced by the evil Sherriff of Nottingham. The citizens think all hope is lost until they hear word of a noble hero, Robin Hood of Locksley. Robin Hood, with the help of his merry men (which are mostly girls) robs from the rich, gives to the poor, and saves the fair Maid Marion. This comic retelling of the story includes thumb wars, missed cues and a slow motion fight.
