Come along on a swashbuckling journey to Nottingham with a live retelling of the story of Robin Hood. The whole family can get it on the action when Robin and his Merry Men take on the highly taxing Prince John and his enforcer, the Sheriff of Nottingham. Along with his friends, the outlaw hero robs from the rich to give to the poor, while putting his archery skills to good use rescuing the beautiful Maid Marion. The show will be performed by the talented young performers of Marsh Youth Theater's MainStage Performance Ensemble, who range in age from 4 to 21. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Elect To Laugh with Will Durst and Friends! is a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC. It will blend monologues and commentary and perhaps the occasional rant. The show’s intent is to blur the traditional boundaries between stand- up comedy and theater. Through innovation, experimentation and a ravenous appetite for accessing the topical via the jugular, Durst and Company are out to prove that jokes are not the enemy.
Descendants of Mark Twain, George Carlin and Spalding Gray, Durst and his rotating cast will every Tuesday twist the rhythm of stand-up with poetry, punditry and puzzles o’plenty planting the production solidly in the strictures and structures of a deconstructed one man show. Or solo performance piece. Whatever. With a single aim: to mock and scoff and taunt, but with taste. Consider it political comedy for people who don’t like politics.
The show runs approximately 90 minutes, and is recommended for ages 18 and up.
