STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Theatre at Tarleton in its Young People’s Series will present The Many Disguises of Robin Hood on Saturday, Oct. 22, in the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Auditorium.
In merry olde England, the townspeople are overtaxed and overwhelmed. Ah, but the mysterious outlaw Robin Hood gives them hope by stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.
With many clever disguises, Robin continually tricks the greedy sheriff of Nottingham, his nasty daughter, Luciana, and the evil Prince John. Among the disguises is a minstrel costume to steal Prince John’s silver plates and excellent cook. Robin also dresses as an old man and enters the archery contest to win the golden arrow.
When a young girl from Nottingham joins Robin’s band of outlaws, she discovers Robin’s secret: Robin is actually a woman. Eventually, Robin needs her outlaw pals and her childhood friend, the brave Maid Marian, to use all of their quarterstaffs, swords, arrows and wits to save her from the gallows.
Performances are at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tickets are $3, and all seating is general admission.A founding member of The Texas A&M University System, Tarleton is breaking records — in enrollment, research, scholarship, athletics, philanthropy and engagement — while transforming the lives of more than 15,000 students in Stephenville, Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian, A&M RELLIS at Bryan and online.
