In keeping with their summer tradition, the Culver City Public Theatre unveiled its latest theatrical performance with “Rosalynde and the Falcon” by David Hansen.
In “Rosalynde and the Falcon,” Rosalynde’s evil uncle, the King, forces her to run away from a throne that should be hers, and she meets a wily, wacky trio of thieves in the forest, who offer to help her. Her best friend, the Prince, accidentally gives her hiding place away, and she must go into clever disguise, with an unexpected outcome. Combining the best elements of Robin Hood, Snow White, and Shakespeare this tale tells the story of bumbling banditry, mixed-up secret identities, and unexpected friendship.
The play began July 13 and will run at Dr. Paul Carlson Memorial Park from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday until Aug. 4.
Attendees are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic lunches. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. A small concession stand offering beverages and light snacks will be on site.

Dr. Paul Carlson Memorial Park is located at 10400 Braddock Drive at the corner of Motor Avenue and Braddock Drive in Culver City. Parking is available on the park side of the street.
