We are looking for:
Cast and Crew for RFA’s Summer Production of “The Death of Robin Hood.”
Oh no! Our Intrepid Hero of the People, Perpetual Scallywag, Master Archer, Savior of England, loved by women and children alike, is DEAD! How could this have happened? WHY would it happen? And how did he get so many fabulous titles in the first place? In “The Death of Robin Hood” we learn the whole sordid affair from those who knew him best, both friends and foe. A Comedy in 2 Acts with a running time of an hour and a half. Will be full of silly costumes, witty dialogue, daring sword fights, and a whole lot of fun!
