Brauer College students to perform Robin Hood

Brauer College will put on one of its biggest productions on Thursday and Friday nights with its performance of Robin Hood.

More than 60 cast and crew have been rehearsing for the past three months for the shows at Brauer College’s Anderson Theatre.

Director Braden Dawson said the students had worked to polish their performance. “It’s the congeniality of the cast and crew. They’ve come together really well during the production schedule. The cast were given major tasks to complete and as a result it is a more fluid show. They’ve worked hard and it’s paid off for them.”

He said the show was a mix of the traditional Robin Hood story which had dark undertones, but was presented in a light way that all ages could enjoy. 

Leading roles include Josh Bartlett (Sheriff of Nottingham), Lily Handerson (Robin Hood), Monique Jones (Maid Marion) and Kynan Kelson (Prince John).

There were school performances during the week and public performances will be held on Thursday and Friday night at 7.30pm.
