St. Edward’s University’s theater season is concluding with “The Robber Bridegroom,” based on the novella by Eudora Welty.

In this bluegrass fairy tale, rascally robber Jamie Lockhart courts Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country. Things go awry thanks to a case of double mistaken identy. Add an evil stepmother intent on Rosamund’s demise, a pea-brained henchman and more, and you have quite an adventure on your hands.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays through April 26, with additional performance 7:30 p.m. April 22. $22-$25. Mary Moody Northen Theatre, 3001 S. Congress Ave.
