Allentown Public Theatre Presents an Action-Packed Robin Hood Rollicking tale of heroism and mischief opens July 22 at St. Luke's Church in Allentown
ALLENTOWN, Pa. – For two weekends, July 22-31, Allentown Public Theatre (APT) will transport audiences to Sherwood Forest for an adventure with Robin and his Merry Men. Suitable for audiences of all ages, Robin Hood by Greg Banks brings the classic story to life with athleticism and slapstick humor. APT's fourth annual family-friendly production is being hosted, as in past years, by St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Allentown.
For her first production for children and families as APT's Artistic Director, Anna Russell chose Robin Hood, she says, because she fell in love as a child with the “charm, wit, and pure fun of the seemingly endless exploits of Robin and his contemporaries. There's something eternally delicious about the idea of a band of noble outlaws living in the forest, ready to swoop to the aid of those in need.”
