Robin Hood Musical
“When a place is your home, you have a responsibility to take care of it. To make it a place you can be proud of…”
Robin Hood is a legend. Whether he is a hero, hood, or the ORIGINAL PRINCE OF CHARITY, is up for
debate. In this Monty Pythonesque comedic and compassionate musical adaptation, we revisit an age old tale of love, civil disobedience and the quest for a true meaning of

A troubled, destitute kingdom, ravaged by greed, is left to the mercy of an unscrupulous Sheriff. From nearby Sherwood Forest, one man and his band of vowed compatriots(Will Stutely, Friar Tuck, Little John and many Merry Men…) choose to make a stand for good. He captures the imaginations of the downtrodden peasants, woos the beautiful niece of the missing King Richard, and dedicates his life to the freedom of the good people of Nottingham. Do his actions of bravery make him a hero or a hood? It’s up to the audience to decide.

Originally produced and developed at Manhattan Children’s Theatre, shortly after 9/11, Mark Sarto’s musical adaptation garnered stellar reviews for telling
“a happy, hopeful and accessible take on good overcoming evil, always welcome in most uncertain times.”

Director, Laura Stevens, was privileged to bring Sarto’s musical to The Assembly – George Square for Fringe 2017. This was Stevens’ 3rd Fringe production working with the brilliantly talented British actors and designers while carrying on MCT’s mission here in Scotland, her home.
