Monty Python meets Disney
Tonight Cole and I are are off to see “The Trials of Robin Hood,” by the London Community players.
The family friendly show presents three different versions of what really happened during King Richard’s absence, presented from the perspectives of Maid Marion, The Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin Hood himself.
“The Trials of Robin Hood is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever directed!” laughs director Ceris Thomas. “It is Monty Python meets Disney with a touch of swashbuckler thrown in for your entertainment.”
In the tradition of British pantomimes, the audience is called upon to help King Richard decide the innocence or guilt of the infamous outlaw in this interactive tale.
With a cast of over 30, this high-action comedy includes the Merry Men, karate chopping nuns, and lots of other screwball comedy for the whole family.
Every Christmas Cole and I do a mini-podcast of the family friendly shows in town. Come back Monday for this year’s edition.
