BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA –  With more than 50 original plays and adaptations under his belt, Surfside Playhouse Artistic Director, Bryan Bergeron went deep into Sherwood Forest and took a hammer to the classic tale of Robin and his band of Merry Men.


His Robin Hood Fractured will open on Friday, June 14 at the Surfside Playhouse in Cocoa Beach, running through June 23 (two weekends).

Under the direction of the playwright, Robin Hood Fractured brings the egotistical Robin, along with Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, The Sheriff of Nottingham and the rest to life as a large cast comedy with music.

The two-act play with intermission contains familiar characters and situations from Sherwood Forest –and twists them with a heavy dose of farce.

Taking inspiration from Rocky and Bullwinkle’s “Fractured Fairy Tales” (1959-1964), the family-friendly comedy clocks in at two hours and promises a layered experience for adults as well as children.

Songs with witty lyrics by Bergeron include such titles as “Damsel in Distress Blues,” “High Born” and “Palace Guard Schtick,” among others.

Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m., Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Adult tickets to all shows are $25, Senior/Military/Student tickets are $22. Children aged 17 and under are $10.

The 250-seat Surfside Playhouse, “Where the Beach Meets the Stage,” is west on South Fifth Street from Highway A1A and located at 301 Ramp Road in Cocoa Beach, at the northwest corner of Brevard Avenue and Ramp Road.

For more information about Robin Hood Fractured, call 321-783-3127.

Artistic Director for the Surfside Players, Bryan Bergeron wrote Robin Hood Fractured as well as the “fractured” past season-enders, Alice in Wonderland Fractured and Wizard of Oz Fractured.

“I love taking a familiar story and reshaping it into a comedy,” said Bergeron. “Our ‘fractured’ version of Robin Hood keeps the things you love about the original and adds jokes and hilarious situations you can’t begin to imagine. And of course, audience members of every age will find plenty to laugh about.”

In continuous operation since 1963, the Surfside Playhouse is home to the Surfside Players and presents a full season of self-produced shows and community performances each year.
