Kuemper Catholic High School students have had a rollicking good time bringing a comic retelling of the Robin Hood legend to stage this week.
“Robin and His Merry Men” will be presented at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Carroll Recreation Center theater.
In the story, written by Richard Gremel, 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 Sheriff of Nottingham.
The citizens think that 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 (who all are girls) rob from the rich, give to the poor and save the fair Maid Marian.
The story includes thumb wars, missed cues, and slow-motion fights.
Tickets are $6 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
