Absegami High School Robin Hood 2014

Absegami High School’s award-winning drama club, The Emanon Players, presented a comedic version of the classic Robin Hood.  Over three performances November 21, 22 and 23 the Emanon Players had the audience rolling in the aisles.  This version of the story found in English folklore is written by Don Nigro, one of the most widely produced playwrights int he world, said director Chip Garrison.  The story presented a twist on the traditional tale of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.  Prince John wants to cut down Sherwood Forest to put up an arms-manufacturing plant, a slaughterhouse and a tennis court for the wealthy.  Chip Garrison said that it unites elements of wild farce and ancient mythologies with an environmentalist assault on the arrogance of wealth and power in the face of poverty and hunger.

The play directed by Garrison featured students Nicholas Hathaway as Robin Hood, Natalie Frantz as Maid Marian, Saverio Turrano as Prince John and who also created the poster design for the production.  Other roles: Brady Bock as Little John, Spenser Lyons as Will Scarlet, Jess Schrading as Lady Quigley, C.J. Coyle as the Sheriff of Nottingham, Nathan Moore as King Richard, Zach Hassel as Alan O’Dale and Michael Moore as Friar Tuck.  Rounding out the cast: Colleen Garrison, Isabelle Brown, Abby Cohen, Rachel Cohen, Ashley Fox, Andrea Rapetti, Jordan Porch, Lexi Patterson, Miranda Muniz, Sarah LePine, Rick Mangold, Matt Brennan, Brandi Aldredge, Jenna Baldwin, Breanna Gargione, Sarah Heintz, Raynah Katzem, Victoria Kreutzer, John Lopez, Bart Machula, Lynnette Marmolejos-Cepada, Nicole Marmolejos-Cepada, Johnny Nguyen, Mia O’Neill, Jacklyn Polisano, Julie Samuels and Victoria Williams
