Comedy opens at Stage Coach

Stage Coach Players presents its production of the comedy “The Robin Hood Caper” by Fred Carmichael. The production will open today and run through May 12 at Stage Coach Theater, 126 S. Fifth St. in DeKalb.

Directed by Anita Biletzy, “The Robin Hood Caper” involves four friends, members of their own private Charities Anonymous Club, who meet twice a year to report on their charitable activities. But unlike other charitable groups, these friends are all old crooks who have taken to plying their trades to do good – robbing from the rich and giving to the poor.

During a club meeting at the home of Flora Langley’s nephew Richard, it comes up that Richard is about to lose his newspaper because of an article he wrote exposing the town’s evil mayor. Naturally, the Charities Anonymous Club jumps into action, and comedy ensues. Along the way there is a love story and clever satire.

Cast members include Mike Mattingly (Richard Collins), Cheryl Johnson (Flora Langley), Bridget Crase (Jessica Selby), Donna O’Hagan (Emily Jordan), Stewart Ogilvie (Jason Bosley), David Kuhn (Phillip Mullins), Denny Boynton (Hubert Ratner), John McCue (Warrant Coates), Vince Virtue (Frederick Ruggles) and Sabrina Larson (Sylvia Coates).
