Rocklin High takes aim at "Robin Hood"

-A +A

Rocklin High School’s Theater Arts Department will present an original take on a timeless story.
“Robin Hood,” written by American dramatist and screenwriter Larry Blamire, will be presented over the next two weekends in the Katie Taylor Memorial Theater on the Rocklin High School campus.
Blamire has synthesized the conflicting legends and ballads about the outlaw folk hero and created a funny, sprawling, action-packed drama.
Besides ably retelling the legend, Blamire has created roles that challenge and reinvent the myth, including Maid Marion, a wise-cracking, superior swords person and Robin, who only by chance finds himself a hero.
True to the legend, however, all ends well. The Sheriff’s sleazy scheme to wed and bed young Ellen fizzles. King John’s vicious taxes are rescinded. The Sherwood Foresters are finally legitimized and justice descends on England’s green and pleasant land.
Shows will be presented at 7 p.m. on Oct. 27, Nov. 2, 3 and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Nov. 5 in Rocklin High School’s Katie Taylor Memorial Theater.
Tickets, at $7 general admission and $6 for senior citizens and students with ASB cards, can be purchased at the door one-half hour prior to show time.
