Robin Hood: The Lengendary Musical Comedy

Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical Comedy has taken Toronto by storm. Playing to sold-out houses at U of T's Hart House Theatre, it features clever, biting and amusing twists on the familiar legends of Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Irreverent to the core, Robin Hood is tongue-in-cheek entertainment that jabs an accusing finger at the social, political and religious constructs which inform our notions of status and the distribution of wealth.

Created 8 years ago at Shakespeare by the Sea in Halifax, the show has come a long way from its a capella beginnings, and we're hoping to take it even further. To accomplish that, we need to create a high-quality cast recording of the music that we can share not only with our adoring fans, but with interested producers who are thinking about picking up the show. 

Your support on this project will help to promote "one of the best Canadian musicals ever written." (We didn't say that - an audience member did!)

May Every Man Be a Merry Man!

The money raised through this campaign will go towards several aspects of production: 

  • Studio time for recording the album
  • Engineering and mixing of the recordings
  • Production of the CD itself

We're producing this CD to help spread the word about how fantastic Robin Hood really is. The CD will go a long way towards sharing our music with other people. As a thank you, we've got some pretty awesome perks available if you're able to help fund us: 

  • the cast recording (of course!)
  • show posters signed by the cast and crew
  • original scripts of the production
  • much, much more!

New perks are being added weekly, so check back to see if there's something that might grab your attention!

Why We Need Your Help

In this day and age of glitz and glamour, it takes a polished product to stand out in the crowd. Getting this CD into the hands of audience members and producers will help us take Robin Hood to the next level. You'll be supporting the development of original Canadian theatre, and also get to listen to some pretty awesome music too!

Other Ways You Can Help

We would love it if you could help spread the word for our campaign with your friends and your Broadway producers. Twitter, Facebook and other social media are all great ways to tell your friends! There are even Indiegogo share tools you can use!

Thanks for your help!
