ITSAZOO Productions is pleased to present Robin Hood, an outdoor Promenade Show. Robin Hood follows an ITSAZOO tradition of 6 summers of critically acclaimed, sold-out productions (Grimm Tales, The Road to Canterbury, Alice in Wonderland, A Midsummer Nights’ Dream). This irreverent and modern adaptation of Robin Hood runs Aug 4-19 in Queen Elizabeth Park.
Robin Hood is a social/political satire inspired and influenced by everything from Bread and Puppet Theatre and Bertolt Brecht to South Park and The Colbert Report. The story follows a group of social activists who live and work amongst the transients of a tent city located in an urban park. The need for social programs is at an all-time high, however the government has allocated all its resources to a commerce-driven sporting event. So the activists take matters into their own hands. The audience literally follows the merry men as they ‘Steal from the Rich to give to the Poor’.
Robin Hood opens Thursday, August 5 at 7:00 pm, and runs nightly through until the 7th. It then runs August 10-14 and 17-19. All performances take place in Queen Elizabeth Park. Meet at the Bloedel Conservatory. Tickets are $ 17/13, plus HST, and can be purchased in person from the Bloedel Conservatory. For information call 778-888-2435 or visit www.ITSAZOO.org.
