As students from Liberty Elementary School got seated for a preview performance of the Rose Theater's “Robin Hood” Thursday, four “homeless” people wandered through the rows of seats. One sang songs, another led an imaginary dog by its collar, another bellowed he wanted to get a “sammich.”
These homeless people were the four actors in the play, and they seamlessly moved from the audience into the action on and in front of the stage. Thus began a boisterous production that transformed the four unfortunates into the characters of the “Robin Hood” play.
