Robin Hood
Director: TBD
Cast: YES JR. Actors

Synopsis: Youth Ensemble Studio Jr. dives into the classic story of Robin Hood and his band of merry outlaws who live in Sherwood Forest. When the greedy ruler of Nottingham taxes people dry, it’s up to Robin Hood to take from the rich and give to the poor to keep food on the table. Full of action and adventure, this timeless tale inspires us to stand up to bullying and be kind to those who are less fortunate.
