Brush Creek opens 2018 season with Robin Hood: Crusader for Justice
This original take on the classic legend of the daring bandit who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor returns to Brush Creek Playhouse to open the 2018 season on Friday, February 16. Robin Hood: Crusader for Justice follows Robin’s progression from a somewhat irresponsible nobleman to an outlaw leader to a crusader for justice.
The script, written by Emily Wood and Michael Wood, includes many of the familiar elements of the classic story – Robin’s love for the Lady Marian, his adventures with the Merry Men, including Little John, Will Scarlett and Friar Tuck, and his conflict with the Sheriff, Sir Guy, Prince John and their soldiers.
As has been the case for more than two decades, Brush Creek’s annual children & youth production is directed by Linda Zellner. Zellner is pleased to have two complete casts, which include both veteran children’s show actors and newcomers. The cast includes beginning readers as well as teenagers. Zellner and her assistant directors, Emily Wood and Alaina Lesko, do have their hands full with well over 50 young actors performing this year!
