Robin Hood

Angela Foster’s original adaptation of Robin Hood features the familiar outlaw, his Merry Men, lady love Maid Marion and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. But you’ve never seen Robin Hood like this — that’s because at every performance, the audience decides the story’s ending. InterActive Theater pauses the show in the middle and lets the audience determine the direction the hero of Sherwood Forest takes on the rest of his adventure.

Via press materials, Foster, he executive artistic director for InterActive Theatre Company, says Robin Hood is one of her favorite characters, in part because of the many aspects to his story — adventure, romance and history. “There’s nothing I enjoy more than mounting a production with a full gamut of sword fights, narrow escapes, broad physical comedy and a hero to inspire us all,” she says. 9:30 a.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, through May 20; 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 p.m. April 16 and May 7. Heights Presbyterian Church, 240 West 18th Street. For information, call 713-862-7112 or visit www.interactivetheater.org. $6 to $8.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 6. Continues through May 20, 2011
