`Robin Hood’ crusades for the poor, and the environment, in CRMS play

The historic – and newly remodeled – CRMS Barn in Carbondale will be transformed into Sherwood Forest when Colorado Rocky Mountain School students perform “Robin Hood: A Play” at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15 and 16.

The public is invited to attend this first theatrical performance in the newly restored and reroofed Barn, long a valley landmark and a pivotal structure for the independent college-preparatory school.

This version of the classic tale, written by Don Nigro, was originally commissioned by the artistic director of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival and first produced in the summer of 1984. The play is a very funny and slightly bawdy presentation of the mythological story of Robin Hood.

Though the play is still set in medieval England, in this production Robin Hood not only champions the poor, but is an environmentalist determined to save Sherwood Forest.

Leading the large cast are seniors Emma Juniper as Maid Marian and Aaron Sandfield as Robin Hood. Senior Alana O’Neal plays Marian’s lady-in-waiting and also is the student director, assisting faculty director Tom Elmer with preparation of the production.

Valley residents appearing in the play are Colin Brimm, Niki Grosjean, Mia Gaw, Josh Buchman, Marcela Iniguez, Natalie Johnson, Jessica Meister, Gretchen Grebe and Tipper Hassig. Overseeing costumes is Khara Gaw, CRMS art teacher.

Admission at the door is $5 for adults and $2 for children. For more information, call CRMS at 963-2562.
