How it takes a village of artists, loving support of family and friends and a LOT OF HARD WORK AND DEDICATION!

A Note From Carla


Yes, of course we do theater because it is fun and entertaining; and of course we artists LOVE every minute of what we do, but producing a well-crafted 3-dimensional show takes more than that. It takes hours of hard work, dedication and a LOT of people to create a show of this size. There are so many people who are involved in the building of a show who work endlessly, not only onstage but behind the scenes – and this show is no exception.

The story of Robin Hood has always been a favorite of mine (of course, all who know me understand that I am a HUGE fan of the Errol Flynn, 1938 movie – corny as it is) so reviving this hilarious and fast paced script, after a 10 year gap, brought back all the old excitement of this legend to the forefront for me. As you can well imagine, staging an adventure of this magnitude, is a HUGE undertaking, so I have employed several professional theater artists from the Twin Cities who will share their talents with us.
