VIDEO: Climb and Zip Through the Trees with Highlights from Serenbe's Immersive ROBIN HOOD
Serenbe Playhouse, recipient of the prestigious American Theatre Wing grant, and recently honored with the most Suzi Bass Awards for a musical in Atlanta (Miss Saigon), presents ROBIN HOOD, new adaptation by Rachel Teagle. The show is directed by Broadway's Paul McGill with original music by GRAMMY nominee John Burke. The show opened on June 2nd and runs through August 13th. Watch highlights from the show below!
No tale could be more suited for REBELLION than that of Robin Hood, the story of a renegade knight who abandons his life of comfort for that of an outlaw. But Robin Hood's defection is not in the name of recklessness - he's a man of the people who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. Alongside his band of Merry Men, our hero also chases romance with the lovely Maid Marian.
In this new adaptation by Serenbe collaborator Rachel Teagle and under the direction of Broadway's Paul McGill, characters will fly through Serenbe's magnificent forest on a zip line, redistributing wealth as they go!
