Logan and Mason Clark, grandsons of Kema Clark (owner of Kema’s Hobby), star in Theatre Macon’s Robin Hood put on by the Youth Actors Company (YAC).

The production is directed by Scot and Kelly Mann. Scot is an internationally renowned Fight Master, and his wife Kelly is an advanced actor combatant recognized by the Society of American Fight Directors. They both have numerous accolades to their credit and brought their considerable talent to this production.

The staging is sparse and the special effects low-tech, but this choice allows for some really fun scenes with “puppeteers” manipulating props, arrows, and even characters in Matrix-like fight scenes. Campy and funny, reminiscent of Men in Tights or Princess Bride, it makes for a very enjoyable evening.

Logan is the younger brother and has been in two previous plays with the Manns, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Treasure Island. He is artistic, both visually and musically, and very outgoing. He plays disgraced knight Dickon Malbete, who is hired by the villains to kill King Richard before he can foil their plans.

Mason is a 17-year-old junior who is as athletic as he is artistic. He has been in only one play before, Treasure Island, with his brother. In his second foray onto the boards, he is playing the title role. His Robin is brave, bold, cocky, and brings images of Cary Elwes and Errol Flynn to mind.
