The Cherokee Washington High School Drama Department will be presenting the comedy, "The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood" on Thursday, Nov. 19 and Friday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. Cost will be $5 for adults, $4 for students, and activity tickets will be accepted.

Robin, with the help of a Merry Man wannabe simply known as the Town's Guy, turns this once-simple legend into a hysterical trip through Sherwood Forest with surprises at every turn.

The charming-but-egotistical hero leads his band of familiar wood-dwellers as they battle the delectably evil Prince John and his haughty henchman, the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Robin's one and only love, the Lady Marian, remains true to her champion as she assists his crusade by wishing the prince and sheriff a rash of various skin afflictions. Incredibly, the model good guy, Robin, discovers that even heroes have a few important life lessons to learn. "Finally!"

Directed by Tara Gunderson and Megan Pigott, this play features the cast of John Bieber as Robin Hood, Claire Jacobmeyer as Lady Marian, Jacob Lewis as Prince John, Andrew Lafleur as the Sheriff of Nottingham, Eric Boisen as the Town's Guy, Dan Rodgers as Friar Tuck, David Lefleur as Little John, Connor Ogren as Alan Adale, Jaden Lux as Will Scarlet, Demi Dunn as the Lady-in-Waiting, Abby Hayes as the Poor Woman, Amber Lundquist as the First Guard, Amanda Lewis as the Guard, plus Hanna Henson, Mikaela Sandahl and Dallas Petersen as the Fawning Ladies, and Amanda Kellen, Nicole Springer and Emily Kramer as the Merry "Men."

Amber Haupert and Jordan Miller will be doing the lights and sound, Scott Long is the production's handyman and backstage crewmember, along with Nicole Kellen and Tyler McLouglin as fellow backstage crewmembers. The play's student director is Amber Schwarz.
