Robin Hood: lusty hero, hopeless lover, or evil criminal? Told from the perspectives of Maid Marian, the Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin himself, this hilarious telling combines three different versions into one, with three different endings, leaving it up to the audience to chose which one is true!
Co-directors Mike Payette and Jessica Abdallah, along with a cast of 38 actors, bring you the comedic story of King Richard (played by the Honourable Jean-Francois Buffoni– Justice of the Superior Court of Quebec) who, upon his return from the Crusades, attempts to figure out what happened in his kingdom during his absence.
Join one of three audiences and decide the verdict to determine which of the three different endings will be performed! See some of Montreal’s most celebrated legal and business leaders performing on stage – all in support of one of Canada’s leading companies for Theatre for Young Audiences – on December 7 and 8, 2018.
Each performance is followed by a cocktail and catered reception which includes a silent auction and a raffle where patrons can bid on a choice of holiday gift items and win a trip to anywhere Air Canada flies in North America including Hawaii and the Caribbean! Proceeds help Geordie Theatre continue to bring its annual 2Play School Tour, Canada’s longest running and furthest reaching annual theatre tour, to children across Eastern Canada, present its Mainstage Series to families here in Montreal each season and run its Geordie Theatre School.
“Over the past few months, almost forty members from the law, business, medical and education communities have volunteered their time in support of Geordie Theatre, dedicating numerous hours to rehearsals, learning fight choreography and spreading the word about the gala fundraiser show. After so much hard work, we are very excited to share this wonderfully comedic and entertaining story with our audiences – new and returning – and are grateful for all their support.”
