What if The Three Stooges told the story of Robin Hood?
Robin Hood deliver a fast paced, physical and very, very silly rendition of the classic story of the archery expert who stole from the rich to give to the poor in the England of Prince John and the absent King Richard the Lion-Hearted. The boys loved it. They are suckers for slapstick and extreme silliness. The ensemble is tight and the action fast paced. They incorporate audience participation and Oliver even got to go up on stage to compete in the archery contest (he hammed it up his own way). Highlights included a very funny chase sequence to Gibson's favorite Yakety Sax and I would tell you who both boys' favorite character was, but then there would be a major spoiler, so I can't. For those who have seen the show, it was the character with the most hair... I loved Caley Suliak as the somewhat Jewish Friar Tuck and Paul Sutherland's Prince John was priceless! One more show tonight at 7:00 p.m.Well, that's basically what I saw today at The Snow Globe Festival. The four person cast of Evan Hall, Caley Suliak, Paul Sutherland and Brendan Thompson In
