Armstrong’s award-winning Asparagus Community Theatre takes the stage in December with Robin Hood and His Merry Men.

Written by U.K. authors Robin Bailes and  Jonathan Hales, this wild romp through Sherwood Forest is told in the tradition of British pantomime, and will feature hilarity, audience participation, cross-dressing, and lyrical good fun.

“This stage production is going to be absolutely hilarious: Imagine Robin Hood meets Monty Python. In a dress,” said director Sheryl Hamilton.

Robin Hood & His Merry Men has a large, local cast and crew featuring the seasoned talents of Shaleen Toney (Robin Hood), Mark Trussell (Sheriff of Nottingham) and Phelan Gotto  (Prince John), as well as many new and returning faces.

The show runs from Dec. 3 to 5 and 10 to 12 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on Saturdays at 1 p.m. All shows are at Centennial Theatre, 3305 Pleasant Valley Blvd., Armstrong.

Tickets are available through The Guy Next Door, 3450 Okanagan St., 250-546-0950. Adults are $18, seniors/students $15, and children $10.
