Welcome to Sherwood! Cobb&Co Theater Productions, along with Angelus Theatre proudly present, Robin Hood the Musical; a Cobb&Co original production.
Music for the show was created by Karrol Cobb, a seasoned composer whose work includes “The Medicine Show” and “The Light Express” as well as several 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 Johnny 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,” says librettist Tony Cobb. “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 the true jackpot. When he does, he sacrifices everything for that jackpot and becomes a true hero; whether he likes it or not.
Robin Hood the Musical features John Cobb (Westley, The Princess Bride; Frederick, The Pirates of Penzance) as the cunning Robin Hood, Michelle Adams as the elegant Maid Marian (Hodel, Fiddler on the Roof; Fairy Godmother, Cinderella) and Michael Mehner as the venerable sheriff of Nottingham (Dracula, Dracula; Porthos, The Three Musketeers).
The show will be held June 7-29 on Monday, Friday and Saturday at the Angelus Theatre, 165 N. Main St., Spanish Fork. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for students, seniors and veterans, $6 for children, and $35 for a family pass good for up to 6 people. Immediate family only.
