Hannibal, MOB Children of all ages will enjoy this year's show, The Adventures of Robin Hood.  The classic story of England's best-loved outlaw will take place on Thursday, April 12 with show times at 9:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. in the Parker Theatre on the Hannibal-LaGrange College campus.

The character Robin Hood is famous for his mantra to “rob from the rich and give to the poor,” as he fights against tyranny and injustice.  The Adventures of Robin Hood encourages the audiences to interact with the actors as the story unfolds.  This type of interactive theatre draws the audience to a better understanding of the themes of the show.

This extracurricular activity for college students has grown to an annual event for area school children.  Every year, more than 4000 elementary school students attend the children=s show at Hannibal-LaGrange College.

Due to the favorable response to the children's show, we ask you to call 573-221-3675, ext. 0 to make your reservations.  Tickets are $1 per person.  The deadline to reserve tickets is March 31.  For more information on the children's show program at Hannibal-LaGrange College, call 573-22-3675, ext. 343.
