BOLINGBROOK – With the opening just a few weeks away, the crew for the Bolingbrook High School production of “Robin Hood” is hard at work creating another set to fascinate the audience.

“This is a little more complicated than other plays we’ve done because there are so many nature scenes,” Technical Director/Set designer Rich Johnson said. “Creating a building is easy. Creating a forest is a different animal.”

Johnson’s crew consists of more than a dozen BHS students, many of whom have been coming in every day after school since the first week of September to help create the sets.

“We wouldn’t be able to do this without them,” said Johnson, a remodeling contractor who has been doing this for BHS for four years. “We show them how to do it and they pick it right up.”

Robin Hood will be performed on stage at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 and 26 and at 2 p.m. on Oct. 27. Tickets for the production are available by going to showtix4u.com or by emailing danielsonk@vvsd.org.
