Robin Hood slated Oct. 17, 18


MT. VERNON — Medieval theater will come alive on Oct. 17 and 18 when the Mt. Vernon Township High School drama department presents Robin Hood.

A special showing will be presented to kindergarten through fourth grade pupils at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on both days with an adult show scheduled at 7 p.m. each evening. The shows are being sponsored by Mt. Vernon Township High School and the Carl Schweinfurth Foundation.

Over 2,600 children from Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, Marion, Wayne and Edwards counties will get to see the matinees with free admission. There is a $4 charge for the evening shows.

"We would love to see more of the community come out and see this," said Director Mary Beth Mezo, who is working with a group of about 55 kids from MVTHS. "When we have those kids in here, they will be into it. They will be having the best of times," she predicted. "We know friends and parents of the kids will be here in the evening, but we encourage others to come out. You can't beat the entertainment for $4."

Robin Hood, the outlaw of Sherwood Forest, leads a merry life with his followers. Anyone who is hungry or who has no place to live is welcome in the greenwood. The citizens of the forest oppose wicked Prince John. He's taken the place of King Richard the Lion-Hearted, who has gone to the Holy Land on a crusade. One day a caravan cuts through the wood. In the convoy is Robin's childhood sweetheart, Maid Marian, ward of King Richard. The evil Lady Merle of Cornwell plans to force Marian to marry Prince John in an effort to make him more acceptable to the people of England.

Will he defeat the nasty sheriff of Nottingham and send the horrible Lady Merle back to France? Will Robin stop the marriage of Marian to the evil Prince John? When, if ever, will King Richard return from the Crusades to restore the peace and harmony to England?
