Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Robin Hood
By Don Nigro

Directed by Cliff Mayotte

Marvin Green as Robin and Jessa Brie Berkner in the 1997 "Robin Hood"


Producer’s Perspective:

After the success of Peter Pan, we thought our audiences would enjoy another “family classic.” Lucas McClure, an actor in the company who also initiated our Young Company program of Shakespeare classes for children, told us about a version of Robin Hood that had been wildly successful at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival. In fact, the production was such a hit the Idaho folks had brought it back for a second year the following season. We read the play and enjoyed its playfulness.
It had wonderful characters that would give actors a chance to flaunt their versatility, and a strong moral message that seemed to get at the core of what is important about the Robin Hood story.
