‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’ comes to Beaver Creek Monday
BEAVER CREEK — Bringing in a new and surprising take on the legend of Robin Hood, Visible Fictions makes a stop at Vilar Performing Arts Center on Monday. “The Adventures of Robin Hood” will be performed as a part of the STARS (Support The Arts Reaching Students) series. Two daytime performances will be offered free of charge to school students on Monday at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. A limited amount of public tickets ($11 child, $14 adult) are available for purchase by calling the VPAC Box Office at 970-845-8497 or visiting http://www.vilarpac.org, and is recommended for ages 7 and up.
Playful, Imaginative Production
Played by two actors, Simon Donaldson and Darran Lightbody, the setting is less of a Sherwood Forest, and more of an everyday place where a tale can be told and objects can be reinvented. Playful, imaginative and fast paced, all the characters are there, in one way or another, along with a host of cardboard boxes, shopping trolleys and food.
Visible Fictions creates vibrant, high quality and accessible theater for young people and adults alike. Throughout the years, its work has inspired and entertained audiences across the world — from Broadway to schools in the Scottish Highlands — always aiming to challenge, excite and thrill. No two Visible Fictions performances are alike, but audiences agree on an equally memorable and powerful experience.

The STARS (Support The Arts Reaching Students) series of performances is offered to promote artistic, educational and cultural enrichment to local students with in-school workshops and daytime shows at the theater. Each year, the Vail Valley Foundation and Vilar Performing Arts Center provide free transportation and tickets to more than 7,000 Eagle County students to expose them to the thrill of live performing arts.
