ST. GEORGE — “Robin Hood, The Musical” is being performed at the Hurricane Community Center March 26-April 11. The show stars Dan Fowlks as the cunning Robin and Emily Forsyth as Marian, the maiden who changes his life.
Directed by Pam Lockwood, this production also stars actor and media personality Sheldon Demke as the fun-loving Friar Tuck.
Music for the show was created by Karrol Cobb, a seasoned composer with a number of musicals to his credit. His work includes such projects as “The Medicine Show” and “The Light Express” as well as productions with his brother, award-winning librettist Tony Cobb.
“Robin Hood, The Musical” presents a few twists on the story of Robin Hood. A rogue and a thief, Robin of Locksley is no hero. He’s an idea man who’s long been looking for a way to hit the jackpot. When he and Jonny go into Nottingham town to pick a few pockets, they hear the townsfolk crying out against the sheriff’s latest tax hike and Robin gets his big idea.
“His plan is to take the money and run,” librettist Tony Cobb said. “And it all works out just the way he planned – until, of course, the woman comes along.”
“Robin Hood, The Musical” is the story of a man who must discover what the true jackpot is. And when he does, he sacrifices all for that jackpot and truly becomes a hero – whether he wants to or not.
