Riley Adams, as Robin Hood, and Chloe Nutt, as Maid Marian, rehearse for Wallace State Theatre’s upcoming production of Ken Ludwig’s “Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood” as fellow cast and crew look on. They will stage the play Oct. 24-26 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 27 at 2 p.m., in the Betty Leeth Haynes Theatre.

HANCEVILLE, Ala. – Wallace State Theatre will present four showings of Ken Ludwig’s “Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood,” Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 24-26 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. in the Betty Leeth Haynes Theatre.

“This show has been such fun to develop, and the students are doing a fantastic job,” said Lauren Cantrell Salerno, director of the Wallace State Theatre program. “This version of Robin Hood is just delightful – packed with laughs, adventure, and lots of stage fighting!”

Salerno added the message behind the medieval tale is still appropriate in the 21st century.

“As we’ve rehearsed Robin Hood, we’ve been reminded of how relevant the story still is today” she said. “It’s about helping people in need, and the quest for truth and justice.”

The cast includes Riley Adams of Cullman as Robin Hood; Chloe Nutt of Hartselle as Maid Marian; Taylor Martin of Decatur as Friar Tuck; Samuel Hewitt of Albertville as Little John; Abigail Pass of Hanceville as Deorwynn; Avery Jackson of Decatur as Sir Guy; Caleb Douglas of Decatur as Sheriff of Nottingham; Blake Tetro of Cullman as Prince John; and Eli Parker of Hanceville as King Richard.

Other cast and crew include Isabella Allred, Marie Bean, Deanna Brunetti, McCoy Cleghorn, Micah Coucke, Abbie Drake, Grace Drake, Samantha Drake, Isabelle Garlowich, Conner Gully, Beatriz Iannucci, Gaven Mattison, Matt Newton, Talia Ponas, Claudio Rameriz, Jorrelle Webster, Kayla West and Asante Wilson.
