LiveArt in a Day was a huge success and we partied hard, so while I realize it’s been a wrap for a week, I’m just now recovering from all the merriment.
But it’s never too late to say “OH MY GOD YOU GUYS ARE SO FREAKING AMAZING,” so I’d like to formally thank all the people who were involved in making LiveArt in a Day 2016 a success.

We had an incredible night and are well on our way to funding our first ever SEASON — starting this May with The Merry Death of Robin Hood and then in September with Love’s LaBeer’s Lost. Of course, we also have our plays in development — The Clara Bow Project and Causality — both gearing up to production soon.

Robin is dead and his Merry Men have gathered to drink, sing, and tell the stories of their dear friend and leader Robin of Locksley. As they tell the stories, they come to life – reliving them to the best of their individual memories (sometimes interrupting and contradicting each other), and showing off all the different sides of this one man and the life he lived and the impression he made.
