About the Show: Based on the short story by beloved writer Eudora Welty, The Robber Bridegroom is the Southern-fried Robin Hood tale of Jamie Lockhart, a dangerous, handsome, backwoods rogue who’s a gentleman by day and bandit by night. When he falls for Rosamund, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy planter, his world and code of ethics are turned upside down. Throw in an evil stepmother intent on Rosamund's demise, her pea-brained henchman, and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk, and you have a rollicking country romp.

The Robber Bridegroom leans heavily on an active ensemble, with almost every scene involving the entire cast in some way. The show includes adult language and themes.
