Robin Hood: Prince of...MONSTERS!
Mainspring Collective and the Irondale Center, along with the Brooklyn Book Festival, present a new children's theater series, Monster Literature, written and conceived by Daniel John Kelley at the Irondale Center.
'Robin Hood:Prince of...MONSTERS!' offers a new twist on an old classic.
There's something funny happening in Sherwood Forest. The evil wizard, Zorlan Morlan has used his magic to turn Robin Hood into a big old scaredy cat, and transform his band of Merry Men into a band of Merry...MONSTERS! It's up to 12 year old Benjy Bleeglehorn and her dashing sidekick, Bravo, to enter the story and turn Robin Hood back into his old self again- by teaching him what it means to be a hero.
Monster Literature is an action-packed and hilarious live theater series that celebrates great works of children's literature that kids can read NOW. It follows the continuing adventures of 12-year-old Benjy Bleeglehorn, and her dashing sidekick Bravo Kirkwood, as they attempt to stop the evil wizard Zorlan Morlan from sending his monster armies into great works of children's literature. With each new adventure, there are new friends to be made, new stories to fixed, and new lessons to be learned!
The series is produced by Mainspring Collective, written and conceived by Brooklyn-based playwright Daniel John Kelley, and is directed by Dara Malina. These high energy performances run approximately 30 minutes, and incorporate original music, dance, masks and puppetry in order to provide an entertaining and educational experience for children ages 5 and up.
The Irondale Center, the first performing arts space to open in the BAM Cultural District, is uniquely and entirely run and maintained by the Irondale ensemble. A beautiful and historic space, the theater is created in the ruins of the old Sunday school building attached to the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church. The church boasts an incredible history in its own right being a reputed shelter for runaway slaves in the 1860's and demonstrating an ongoing commitment to social justice and political activism. www.irondale.org
