Friar Tuck bringing the good word to the good men of Sherwood

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

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

Friar Tuck (played by Pierson Castor) has a deep love for God food, and beverage. In what order though is anyone's guess.

This man-of-the-cloth's friendship with Robin Hood (played by Brendan Massar) began the same way Robin starts most of this friendships...with a fight. From that time on, Friar Tuck took on the role of religious shepherd providing guidance and ministering to Robin and his band of Merry Men.

Don't underestimate Friar Tuck because of his size. He is a dangerous opponent. Just ask Robin Hood. He bested the hooded outlaw in that fight on their first meeting. The good Friar is quick to quarrel with anyone who slights him, deprives him of his food, or makes fun of his girth. In fact, he's a dangerous, hot-tempered opponent who is skilled with the sword.

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!
