GSHS takes a stab

at merry Sherwood Forest

Tickets are on sale for the Glenwood Springs High School Drama Group’s upcoming production of “Legend of Robin Hood … Sort of,” a comedy spoof about England’s most famous bandit.

It’s a little-known fact that the Hood was a bit of a klutz. As a child he practiced with a bow and violin, rather than a bow and arrow, and he fought the injustices laid upon the kingdom by greedy King John with a band of merry women, also known as the Minute Maids. Even Deputy Fife plays a part in this uproarious adaptation.

There’s much more, but it can only be experienced at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4, at the Glenwood Springs High School auditorium. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for seniors, students and children, and available at the Mountain Peddler, 821 Grand Ave., at the school, and at the door prior to each performance. Early arrival is recommended. Refreshments will be served at intermission.

For details, call 384-5555.
