Palestine Community Theatre Announces Casting Call for The Robin Hood Caper
Auditions are August 18.
PALESTINE This fall, Palestine Community Theatre will present The Robin Hood Caper, a light, non-musical comedy which rises to the pitch of irresistible farce.
Auditions for parts in the production will be held August 18, at 10 a.m. at the Texas Theatre.
The Robin Hood Caper, written by Fred Carmichael, borrows the old plot, “rob from the rich and give to the poor,” but not even Robin Hood would recognize the hilarious modern slant given to it. Director Jim Vincill will bring this sidesplitting comedy to life on the stage.
In The Robin Hood Caper, four old people meet semi-annually to report to each other on their works within their private club “Charities Anonymous.” Their meeting this season is in the home of Flora Langley’s nephew, a small town newspaper man. It turns out that the nephew, Richard, is about to lose his newspaper because of an article he wrote exposing the town’s grafting mayor. The old people, of course, have to get involved in the battle to save both the newspaper and the romance between Richard and his fiancée, Jessica. In the end, the secrets are revealed, love triumphs, and the real baddies get their proper punishment.
Opening night for The Robin Hood Caper is Friday, October 21. The shows are October 21, 23, 28 and 30.
