Plant City Entertainment is proud to present The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood by Mary Lynn Dobson on Friday, May 3 through Saturday, May 11. All performances take place at Plant City Entertainment’s theatre located at 101 N. Thomas St. in Plant City.
The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood is a zany take on the classic story of Robin Hood. In this version, the legendary legend, in his quest to aid the needy, encounters a variety of interesting characters. This includes a damsel in distress who is obsessed with skin conditions; a scheming sheriff who is more interested in getting a strike in bowling than with hitting a bull’s eye; a gold hoarding bad guy monarch wannabe; and a good natured “Town’s Guy” who seems to make his way into every scene whether he belongs or not. You will love the expandable band of spoon wielding Merry Men whose collective IQ is about six. Take all of this, and you have an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forrest.
The show is directed by the husband and wife team of Tyler and Angela Hollis. Tyler said, “The show is a total farce. It is a fantastic night of dumb entertainment complete with sight gags and slap stick.” The show is perfect for all ages.
Show times are at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.) on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays. The Sunday show is a matinee at 2 p.m. (doors open at 1 p.m.) Tickets are $10 for members; $12 for senior citizens and students up to 12th grade; and $14 for general admission.
You can get advance tickets at Hardee’s Fashions located at 1501 N. Wheeler St. in Plant City. Tickets will also be available at the door prior to each show.
