Event Details

Arts in the Open presents “The Commedia of Robin Hood” by Lane Riosley. The merry troupe — Columbine, Arlequin, Punchin and Rosetta — tackle, tumble, trick and trip their way through the tale of Robin Hood with fantastic abandon. Get ready for action-packed clowning with puppets, stilts, singing, patter verse and mock combat in this unforgettable adaptation of the classic folktale.
Audience and actors meet at the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter and take a moderate hike on the Enchanted Mesa Trail while scenes from the play are performed along the way. Approximate length of the hike is two miles with an elevation gain of 400 feet.
Audience members are encouraged to bring camping chairs and/or blankets and mats to sit on while watching the scenes. Water, sunscreen and hats are suggested. Comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Picnic Shelter.
Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance. Recommended for ages six (6) and older. Buy tickets at www.chautauqua.com
