Little Red Robin Hood takes a twist on the classic tale of Robin Hood and the adventures in Nottingham and Sherwood Forest. In this version, Little Red Robin Hood joins forces with classic fairy tale characters Humpty Dumpty and Black Sheep to defend the land against infamous villains like Prince John and Cinderella’s stepsisters.

The College at Brockport Xylophone Ensemble performs a range of songs from drum line to adaptations of classical, rock, pop, and jazz. The ensemble includes over a dozen Brockport students and graduates from all levels of training. This special performance features pieces arranged by members of the ensemble.

All performances are included with general admission fees.

Programs underwritten in part by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.
