If you upset this villain, be careful he doesn't grab a spoon. Meet the evil Sheriff of Nottingham

Sharpen your sword. ⚔️
Draw your bow. 🏹
Grab your bowling ball 🎳

If you upset this villain, be careful he doesn't grab a spoon. 
Meet the evil Sheriff of Nottingham on November 9-11 on the Lampeter-Strasburg High School stage when The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood opens.

The Sheriff of Nottingham (played by Matthew Monroy) is Prince John's right hand lieutenant. While Prince John (played by Braeden Weaver) is a bumbling doofus, the Sheriff is anything but. He is a far more dangerous foe to Robin Hood (played by Brendan Massar) and his band of Merry Men than Prince John ever will be. He's a cunning rival; a real threat to Robin's happily ever after ending.

The Sheriff takes pleasure ensuring that the town of Nottingham has more downs than ups as he takes from the poor to give to the rich. 

The Sheriff is a master sportsman and man's man. His military training makes him a master swordsman. His ability with the bow and arrow is second only to Robin Hood. He also bowls a very respectable 247. 
The evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his Guards.
The Sheriff has hopes of marrying Lady Marian (played by Lauren Torres) but it isn't out of love. Such a union with the King's cousin would place the Sheriff into the line of succession especially since the current monarch is without an heir. Being the fool he is, it would not take much to usurp the throne from Prince John. Accidents happen every day in dangerous places like Nottingham and Sherwood Forrest currently overrun with hooded outlaws.

Performances will in the Lampeter-Strasburg High School Performing Arts Center on November 9, 10, and 11 at 7 pm with a special matinee performance on Saturday, November 11 at 2 pm.

If you locked Mel Brooks and Monty Python in a room, The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood is the fourth wall breaking, family friendly spoof you would get.

In this hilarious retelling of the classic tale our gallant guy-in-green hero tries his best as swaggers through the show.

However, this time around, the legendary outlaw, in his never-ending quest to aid the needy, encounters a lovely damsel-in-distress; an ever-scheming sheriff who would rather bowl a strike than hit a bull's-eye; a gold-hoarding, bad-guy monarch wannabe; and a good-natured "Town's Guy" who manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not.

Combine them with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men whose collective IQs equal six, and you've got an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forest you won't soon forget!

Read about the somewhat true tale of creating the Robin Hood poster.
