The Adams State theatre program is getting ready for their Christmas show, Robin hood, directed by Asst. Professor Jenna Nielson.  Each actor has prepared for a fantastic show for all families.

Dr. Paul Newman, Program Director of Theatre said, “I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I think everything came together. It’s going to be fun, some great laughs with some great sword fighting. It’s great for all ages.”

Throughout this show, there are many characters that the audience will really relate to. These characters also make the audience feel as if they were the characters. The most famous character that all children and parents know is Robin Hood.

After seeing the show, most of the kids will say that their heros, like Robin Hood, are their parents.

This show does have some fighting scenes that will make you ask yourself, who will live?

Luke Schoenemann, the house manager for the theatre said, “This show has a lot to do with giving and stealing, but mostly giving. At the end of the day, we are all doing it for the community and that is what the show is really about, to make it fun for the whole family.”

This year’s Robin Hood is not your typical show. This show is action packed and a swordfight-fueled story of good vs. evil. If you blink, you may miss something, like a sword fight or even a kiss .

Newman said, “The director has made the commitment in the play to being about imagining and believing in heroes. I think that’s really what it’s about, understanding and believing in the heroes of our daily lives, as the heroic spirit.”  This show will blow your mind especially with how both the actors, and the set, look.

Even though Robin Hood isn’t really related to Christmas, it is a great show for the Christmas slot for all families.  Jordan Steigerwalt, the stage manager for the show said, “I really enjoy it. It’s a fun show to do and watch.”

It has parts that will get you on your feet and gasping to see what may happen next. This show is one show that will not be boring. Shawnie Abbott, an actor in this show, says, “Robin Hood is a very fitting holiday, family oriented show. It’s got the adventures, the crazy super-villain, the romance aspect of it and the amazing hero.”

All of the characters have a quality that you can find if a regular person walking down the street. This is going to be a great show for absolutely everyone with an opportunity to decide if the hero is a true hero.
