Ken Ludwig's Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood

By Ken Ludwig
Directed by Adam Immerwahr

Advisory: Haze and swordfighting

Presented by

Hyster-Yale Materials Handling Group, Inc.

Cleveland favorite Ken Ludwig (Baskerville, A Comedy of Tenors) is back with a rollicking new take on a beloved legend. A greedy prince has taken control of England, and it is up to dashing outlaw Robin Hood to save the day. Join up and take aim with Robin and his band of Merry Men—and women!—as they champion the underdog and fight for justice. Laughs, romance, and plenty of arrows fly in this all-out comic adventure.
