Would you love to see a show full of enough laughs to keep the whole family entertained from beginning to end? Would you want to watch Good Guys triumph over Bad? Would you also enjoy campy song and dance numbers that come out of nowhere to set your toes tapping? And would you like to cheer and boo along with everyone the whole way?
The answer is simple: Sherwood!
Sugar Factory Playhouse is very pleased to announce its very first fall show, “Robin Hood: The Legendary Comedy”, running September 14th through the 23rd. This show promises to rob from the talents of the actors and give big laughs to the audience faster than a speeding arrow.
Andrew Jensen will star as Robin Hood, Bryan Brady will portray Little John and Michael Bobo will play … well, you’ll have to come and see. Those who saw “Once Upon A Mattress” at the Sugar Factory playhouse will be thrilled to see several returning to the stage. Natalie Easter will play the lovely Maid Marian, Corey Brandenberger is the scene stealing Sir Guy, Mike Dodge will play Friar Tuck, Jen Crabb is the lovelorn Lady Clydesdale, and Kate Brenchley will play more parts than we have time to list here.
The show will be directed by West Jordan resident Bob Bedore, who will also do his evil best as the Sheriff of Nottingham. Diana Osborne will deck the cast out in period costumes (and a few non-period surprises as well), and Carly Brockbank has them dancing.
“Robin Hood: The Legendary Comedy” is written by Bob Bedore and Eric Jensen and has been performed all over the western United States including Off Broadway Theatre and Desert Star Playhouse. It follows the traditional Robin Hood legend but is done in an over-the-top melodrama format which involves the audience from the very first minute.
“Robin Hood” opens September 14 at 7:30 pm. Evening shows will be presented September 14, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22, and 23, 2006 with matinees at 2:00 pm both Saturdays, September 16 and 23.
Tickets for all performances are $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and children 12 and under. The tickets can be purchased at the door, or at Macey’s on 7800 South and 3200 West. Group rates are available.
The Sugar Factory Playhouse is located at 8200 South 2200 West in the old West Jordan sugar factory. The information phone number is 294-1241.
Robin Hood is the type of show that you’ll want to see more than once to catch everything so make your plans now to attend it early, and then bring your friends back for a second or even a third look.
