ABOUT THE PLAY
The Curious Savage is a sentimental comedy featuring Mrs. Ethel Savage, who has been left ten million dollars by her late husband and wants to use the money as she likes, despite her stepchildren's efforts to get their hands on it. The stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium hoping to "bring her to her senses." In the sanatorium, Mrs. Savage meets the kind and gentle men and women who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide. The self-seeking stepchildren are driven to distraction in their vain efforts to browbeat Mrs. Savage, but she continues to lead them on a merry chase with the help of her new friends. The play achieves the mood of high comedy and the audience is left to cheer for the virtues of kindness and affection over greed and dishonesty. (From Dramatists Plays Service.)

"Hood: The Musical" is a classic retelling of the Robin Hood of Locksley who leads the outlaws and maidens of Sherwood Forest in taking back their freedom and saving Maid Marian from the Sheriff of Nottingham and his evil henchmen, Sir Guy of Gisborne as they terrorize the kingdom while King Richard the Lion-Heart of England is off on a Crusade in the Holy Land. Between the sword fights, the merry dancing, the comedy, and the phenomenal classic "80's rock" music Robin prevails as King Richard returns to restore order to his kingdom from the tyrannical yet amusing Sheriff of Nottingham!
