"Rolf(e) - The Musical" - Book, Music & Lyrics by Robert John Ford


You know him as the villain from "The Sound Of Music," but how did a gazebo-dancing messenger boy become a member of the Nazi Youth movement during one fateful summer?  And exactly how do you spell his name? "Rolf(e)" tells the hilarious back-story of a misunderstood teenager and unheralded hero who would do anything for love.  Combining music in the style of Rodgers & Hammerstein, the teen angst of “Spring Awakening,” the laughs of “The Book of Mormon,” and the bawdiness of “Cabaret,” “Rolf(e)” is a musical for the entire family... assuming the kids in the family have already figured out how to bypass any parental controls on their TVs and devices.
