Prairie du Chien High School student Derick Spiller attempts a lift under the instruction and on the back of mentor Jason Tipsword inside the Little Theater. Next week’s production of “Robin Hood” will be not only humorous, but action-packed.

By Correne Martin

With more young men involved in the Prairie du Chien High School theater production than anticipated for awhile, “Robin Hood,” and all its merry adventures, was the perfect selection for this year’s spring stage play. Three performances are scheduled for April 12-14, at 7 p.m. each night.

Past assistant and middle school lead director, Dale Hanson is this season’s high school director. He feels play-goers will be enraptured by the show’s humor and the moral of the story of the legendary heroic outlaw who is Robin Hood: Rob from the rich and give to the poor.
