Meet Little John. You can ask him anything you want just don't ask him anything too complicated.

Sharpen your sword. ⚔️
Draw your bow. 🏹
Put on your tights. 👖

You can ask Little John (played by Sean Burke) anything you want. Just don't ask him anything too complicated. Meet Little John best man of Sherwood Forrest at Lampeter-Strasburg High School on November 9-11 when The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood opens.
As famous as Robin Hood is with the bow, Little John is with his quarterstaff.

The first thing you should know about Little John is that he is not little.

The second thing you should know about Little John is that he is Little. In fact, his real name is John Little.

Little John is the muscle in Robin Hood's (played by Brendan Massar) band of Merry Men along with Allan Adale, Will Scarlet, and Friar Tuck to name a few. He is also his second-in-command lieutenant. What Little John has in brawn in lacks in brains. While his heart is always in the right place, Little John is chronically a day late and dollar short. He's the first to lead the charge against the evil Sheriff of Nottingham (played by Matthew Monroy) and posse of guards but its typically in the wrong direction. Robin could not ask for a more loyal friend.

Mark your calendar
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. Tickets are on sale from October 30 through November 9 in the high school main office week days 2-4 pm. Tickets are also available at the door.

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!
