Not (Necessarily) in Nottingham: Amarillo Little Theatre's "Robin Hood: The Rest of the Story" Opens October 21st

Mikayla Garren and Carrie Huckabay of Amarillo Little Theatre / ALT Academy

This week on High Plains Morning, we chatted with Amarillo Little Theatre Academy about their upcoming world premiere of Robin Hood: The Rest of the Story, playing from Friday, October 21st through Sunday, October 23rd at the Allen Shankles Mainstage (2019 Civic Circle). This quick-paced, witty script was written by ALT veteran and Academy Instructor Carrie Huckabay, with original music by ALT Award winner Jeffrey Pickens.

According to Amarillo Little Theatre, their new show will have you ready to steal from the rich, with the express purpose of giving the spoils to the poor. That is to say, it's time for some Robin Hood in a whole new light. Next weekend, check out Robin Hood: The Rest of the Story,where "the Sherwood Forest comes to life, as some of its most famous inhabitants seek to right new wrongs." This week, we talked to Mikayla Garren, Academy Director at Amarillo Little Theatre. She brought playwright Carrie Huckabay along with her; Carrie wrote the play and worked with Jeffrey Pickins on the music.
