The more the Sheriff of Nottingham collected ever-increasing taxes to stuff the pockets of the corrupt Prince John and his own pockets, the more Robin Hood fought to get that money back to the original owners. He was aided by Little John, Friar Tuck and others in Sherwood Forest.

East Lynne Theater Company’s much anticipated Student Workshop Production is back! After 30 hours of rehearsal covering 10 days, students ages 9-14 will perform “The Tale of Robin Hood,” written by ELTC’s artistic director, Gayle Stahlhuth, at The First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes St., where the company is in residence. The date is Monday, July 3 at 8 p.m. This marks ELTC’s 11th Summer Student Workshop Production, and for the past 10 it’s been standing room only. Admission is free and families are welcome.

Directing the production is Rob LeMaire, who directs for the Ocean City High School Drama Guild. In the fall, he’s directing “Stage Door” by Ferber and Kaufman. Since Rob has been performing with ELTC for 17 years, he’s no stranger to American classics. This summer, he’s performing in ELTC’s “Ah, Wilderness!”

Assisting Rob is Megan Beres (both pictured here), who is pursuing a degree in Technical Theater at Rider University. Lee O’Connor, ELTC’s Technical Director, is also assisting.

Meanwhile, “Will Rogers’ U.S.A.,” starring Tom Byrn, continues on ELTC’s mainstage through July 22, every Wednesday through Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
