For musicals it's common for Reed 3 to double on oboe and Reed 4/5 double on bassoon. In stage shows (like behind a singer), you're more likely to find the oboe part in the lead book.

I learned to play oboe for a while - not well, I told people I played "show-boe".

Then I started to study more seriously and learned the difference between the English Horn and and oboe - the English Horn burns longer...

If you're interested in doubling, I suggest that you spend a few hours looking at Ed Joffe's wonderful video interviews - look for JoffeWoodwinds on YouTube or go to joffewoodwinds.com. Great interviews with great musicians and a lot of informative nuggets to be found.
