3. If you’re a fan of the hero Green Arrow, there’s a chance you’ll like one of his forefathers, Robin Hood, who stars in a self-titled production.
“Robin Hood” is set long ago in the magical place of Sherwood Forest where Robin and his merry band of characters seek the help of the foresters, manage to waylay the aristocrats and set out to rescue Maid Marian.
The show involves silly humor and an original score that jazzes up this classic tale.
As a heads up, the admission to the show is a “pay what you can” donation, with a suggested donation of $5 per person.
“Robin Hood” will hit the stage at The Grand, 818 N. Market St., Wilmington at 1 and 7 p.m., Friday. COST Suggested donation of $5 per person. INFO thegrandwilmington.org or 652-5577.
