Special Programs

"Robin Hood"

Join us this week for a special production of "Robin Hood" by the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company right in the New Dorp Library Community Room! This is "the exuberant tale of intrepid Robin Hood and his Merry Men, who are ever jauntily escaping from the clutches of the ill-disposed Sheriff of Nottingham." We're so pleased to welcome back the wonderful Traveling Lantern Theatre Company, who have been a great hit in the past. Look forward to an afternoon of fun and adventure, and maybe even a sword-fight! We hope to see you there!
