Pay Your Taxes: Prince John is counting on you!

Sharpen your sword. ⚔️
Draw your bow. 🏹
Pay your taxes 💰 because Prince John is counting on you!

In five weeks The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood opens on the Lampeter-Strasburg stage on November 9, 10, and 11. 🎯

Getting to know Prince John
The younger brother of King Richard the Lionheart, Prince John (played by Braeden Weaver) is selfish, greedy, and a bumbling doofus. While his noble older brother is off leading the Great Crusade, Prince John has been left to rule Merry Old England in his steed. Unfortunately, he's incredible inept with no real regard for the welfare of the country or its impoverished people.  

Prince John relies on the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham (played by Matthew Monroy) with his posse of dimwitted guards (played by Nick Blair, Nolan Davidson, Rowen Krantz, and Wesley Leaman) to carry out his dastardly deeds of taxing the poor people of Britain to pieces.
The evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his Guards.
The one person preventing Prince John's plan of usurping the throne from his absent older brother and robbing the people of England blind is the legendary hooded hero in green, Robin Hood (played by Brendan Massar) and his band of Merry Men. 

Too late to be known as John the First, a better description for this despicable money hungry monarch is John the Worst. When the history books are kept, Prince John will undoubtedly be known as the phony king of England. 

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!
