Meet Allan Adale the traveling minstrel in Robin Hood's band of Merry Men

Sharpen your sword. ⚔️
Draw your bow. 🏹
Grab your cittern. 🎸

Meet Allan Adale at Lampeter-Strasburg High School on November 9-11 when The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood opens.

Allan Adale is a member of Robin Hood's (played by Brendan Massar) band of Merry Men along with Little John, Will Scarlet, and Friar Tuck to name a few. If you compared the Merry Men to a pack of happy, not-too-bright stray dogs few would argue the point. As far as Merry Men go, Allan Adale is slightly brighter than Little John, but that isn't saying much. 

Alan isn't the best fighter. He's more of a minstrel often providing musical entertainment for the band of outlaws. Alan enjoying spinning sometimes exaggerated tales of Robin's deeds, spreading the bold outlaw's fame throughout the land.

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!
