TERLINGUA — Tomorrow night (Thursday, May 9) marks Catfish’s triumphant return to the stage after four years!
He plays the evil Sheriff of Nottingham as well as jolly Friar Tuck in the Last Minute Low Budget production of “Commedia Robin Hood.”
Also starring are Brittany Lowe as the lovely Maid Marion (hubba-hubba) and the greedy rich merchant, and Deena Nolan as Little John, King Richard, the puppet (literally!) Prince John, and (also the puppet, literally but not figuratively) Lady Ludicrous.
Oh, and Deena also plays Little John and Friar Tuck, both in disguise, and the greedy rich merchant. But before Brittany plays the greedy rich merchant, and also a poor person, but then Catfish and Brittany also play poor people, and, well it sounds awfully confusing but we’re pretty sure we'll get it all figured out by opening night.
Did we mention the kazoos?
Public performances: 7 p.m. Thursday on the patio at La Kiva, followed at 9 p.m. at the Starlight Theatre.
There is no admission for the public shows, but volunteers will be passing the hat to support LMLB’s efforts to bring live theater to schoolchildren in southern Brewster County.
