Yvan Pedneault is among the cast of Robin Hood.

ON NOW In the uproarious family musical Robin Hood, the title character and his merry men set aside stealing from the rich and giving to the poor for a greater task: saving the environment. Ross Petty’s latest production sees a swashbuckling troupe try to save Sherwood Forest from destruction by the Sheriff of Nottingham and Nottingham Lumber, purveyor of quality toothpicks and toilet paper since 1732. The talented cast includes Canadian Idol winner Eva Avila in her stage debut as Maid Marion and We Will Rock You’s Yvan Pedneault as Merry Men member Alain de Champagne. Elgin Theatre, Thursday and Friday 7 p.m., Saturday 2 and 7 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m., $55 to $79; call 416-872-5555 or follow this link for tickets. —Jenelle DaSilva-Rupchand
