Skagit Academy invites you to this Free performance of Rockin' Robin Hood!

Nottingham rocks in this exciting take on the legend of Robin Hood — fresh yet traditional!  The story begins in a happier time when Nottingham is wealthy and prosperous.  A young orphan Robin and his twin sister Hazel arrive with big hopes to open an archery shop, but immediately run into trouble.  King Richard has recently left for the Crusades, so the rotten Sheriff of Nottingham and his avaricious fiancé, Lady Blackwood, seize the opportunity to tax the town blind.  Robin quickly makes an enemy of the sheriff and eventually becomes a wanted man...  an outlaw!  By the time he escapes to Sherwood Forest, he’s met all his legendary friends — Friar Tuck, Little John, Marian, and more — and brought the team together to help return what is stolen from the poor.  You’ll especially love the awesome score by the award-winning Rockwell and Bogart.  It blends medieval ditties into upbeat rhythms and tempos, perfectly capturing the timeless spirit of our outlaw hero!
