Jessica Arend as Lady Marion and Nathan Cousins playing Robin Hood star in the Front Porch Theatre’s “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood” Aug. 1.

Audiences brought lawn chairs from home to the Donley family’s Burr Street home in Maplewood to take in “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood” Aug. 1. Three different charities -- Feed My Starving Children, World Vision, and The Family Place -- were highlighted on each of the performance nights. Representatives from the charities gave a brief talk afterwards. (Linda Baumeister/Review)
