Meet Will Scarlet; Robin Hood's brightly colored Merry Man

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

Meet Will Scarlet the red clothed outlaw of Sherwood Forrest at Lampeter-Strasburg High School on November 9-11 when The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood opens. 

Will Scarlet (played by Ethan Bare) is in Robin Hood's band of Merry Men along with Little JohnAllan Adale, 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 the youngest member of the Merry Men, Will Scarlet is a scarlet-clad dandy, obsessed with fashion. Like the rest of the band of outlaws, Will Scarlet has a heart of gold although a bit of a wise guy

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!
