The Royal Alexandra Theatre recently celebrated its centennial in 2007 and is a masterpiece of beaux-arts architecture. It is the centrepiece of Toronto theatre and is the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in North America.

December 23, 2014 – March 1, 2015

A classic tale goes rogue in THE HEART OF ROBIN HOOD, the heart-pounding, eye-popping new stage adventure from the Royal Shakespeare Company that puts a bold new twist on the story of the world’s most infamous outlaw.

In this wildly inventive reimagining, Robin Hood isn’t a beloved vigilante who gives to the poor…. he’s just a headstrong thief. It’s up to the brave Maid Marion to protect the kingdom and show this legendary hood how to be a hero.

This raucous and thrilling production explodes off the stage with swashbuckling, acrobatics, comedy, romance and original music written and performed by the celebrated indie roots band Parsonsfield.

Don’t miss this internationally acclaimed, delightfully theatrical experience – it’s Sherwood Forest like you’ve never seen it before!

Over its history the Royal Alex has been home to over 3,000 productions including the recent hits, Mamma Mia!, Private Lives starring Kim Cattrell & Paul Gross, Rock of Ages & Dirty Dancing.
