Details of Robin Hood production are as follows:
Created by Halifax’s Shakespeare by the Sea Collective
Directed by Cynthia Myers
When the impossibly handsome Robin of Locksley returns from the Crusades, he expects a hero’s welcome… but Prince John, the capital E.V.I.L. brother of King Richard, along with the Sheriff of Nottingham have taken charge, stolen Robin’s home (and his favourite black shirt!), and have set about to tax the poor people of the land into oblivion. After Robin is banished to Sherwood Forest, he must join an unlikely group of outlaws to seek revenge, correct bad grammar, and of course, right the wrongs of society by stealing from the rich and giving to the poor…
This irreverent to the core Canadian-made musical features clever, biting and amusing twists on the familiar legends of Robin Hood and his Merry Men. With fast-paced, witty lyrics and a polished, sophisticated score, this show is sure to have you singing “The Evil Song”, “Undercover Lover” and “After Intermission” long after the curtain has come down!
