Margaret LaFontaine, representing the producing theatre, learns that the famous 'Misdirected Theatre Company,' hired to present ROBIN HOOD, has been...misdirected, and will not appear. With a full house to play to, Margaret rounds up her loyal theatre crew--the stage manager, the sound designer, the costumer, the technical director, and the UPS guy who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time--and 'tells the story.' All the most beloved Robin Hood tales are covered--the challenge in the woods between Robin and Little John, the face off between Robin and Friar Tuck, the sweet romance with Maid Marian and, of course, the encompassing exciting story of Robin's battles with the evil Sir Guy of Gisbourne and the treacherous Sheriff of Nottingham. Margaret brilliantly drives the story as her associates use the UPS crate--fortunately filled with the ROBIN HOOD props and costumes that DID arrive, and the performance is saved. Many laughs, lots of adventure and swashbuckling action. Best of all--the parents who attend the show have as good a time as the kids. PHOTO FROM MAKESHIFT THEATRE.
