FREDONIA - The Kaleidoscope Family Series at SUNY Fredonia's Rockefeller Arts Center will open its season with an interactive production of "Robin Hood" on Friday at 7 p.m. in Marvel Theatre.
The players of DuffleBag Theatre will take audience members into Sherwood Forest for an adventure with a band of merry men (and women). Since 1992, the "Nearly World Famous" DuffleBag Theatre has become one of the most celebrated companies in North America, thanks to its interactive storytelling productions like "Robin Hood."
Just when the audience becomes enthralled by the story, a twist is created. Selected audience members are asked to come up on stage and join in the action for a fun-filled, interactive theater experience.
The merry band of players from DuffleBag Theatre will offer an interactive performance of “Robin Hood” on Friday at 7 p.m. in Marvel Theatre at SUNY Fredonia. The performance is part of the Kaleidoscope Family Series at Rockefeller Arts Center.
The unpredictable performance is an experience for all ages and a unique theatrical event in which the dream of being part of the story actually does come true.
This show is approximately 60 minutes long and is recommended for ages 6 through 12.
The DuffleBag players return to Rockefeller Arts Center following their recent performances of "Beauty and the Beast," "Peter Pan" and "A Christmas Carol."
With 13 different shows in its current repertoire, DuffleBag Theatre performs more than 600 times a year across Canada, the United States and internationally.
Marcus Lundgren is the artistic director, and Rod Keith is the general manager.
