Meet Nottingham's local-yokel, Town's Guy, in next month's 'The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood'

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

Every town has one, the local-yokel who's always on the scene ready to be interviewed by the evening news. Nottingham is no exception. Meet the Town's Guy at Lampeter-Strasburg High School on November 9-11 when The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood opens.

Played by Steven Greenwood, the Town's Guy is a good-natured fellow. He eventually befriends Robin Hood (played by Brendan Massar) and teaches Robin's giant ego a few valuable life lessons along the way.

Interestingly enough, the Town's Guy somehow manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not. As the tale's narrator, the Town's Guy helps move the story along adding insight and a bit of stage magic when Robin and his band of Merry Men get into tight spots.

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.

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!
