Theater deal alert: monster Robin Hood for $5

Picture 11We’re not Park Slope Parents or anything, but give us a family show that costs $5 to see and we’ll pretend. That’s the very recession-friendly ticket price for the latest in Brooklyn Lyceum‘s ongoing children’s theatre series. “Robin Hood: Prince of…MONSTERS!” is a spooky twist on a classic tale, written by local playwright Daniel John Kelley. Second in a series dubbed Monster Literature, the show is performed by muppet-esque characters, runs about 35 minutes and is good for kids ages 5 and up. Performances Saturday & Sunday Feb. 13 & 14, and Sat. & Sunday Feb. 20 & 21. (We know we’re a little early, but with prices like these…) Tickets are available online at or at the door.

Brooklyn Lyceum 227 4th Ave., Park Slope, 718-857-4816. R train at Union Street.
