MOUNT CARROLL – The Magic Owl Children’s Theatre at Timber Lake Playhouse will present a new telling of the Robin Hood tale, designed specifically for young audiences, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday at the venue, 8215 Black Oak Road.

Each year, TLP produces a spring show for schools in the region, offering young people their first exposure to live theater. This year, the company has opened up ticket sales to the general public, as well.

Tickets to “The Commedia Robin Hood,” by Lane Riosley, are only $5, as the program is partially sponsored by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, through federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. The cast was chosen from auditions around the country.

Some performances are already sold out, so buying tickets in advance is suggested. Walk-ups to a sold-out show will still be accommodated with folding chairs.

For tickets or more information, visit the box office, call 815-244-2035 or go to The show is appropriate for all ages.
