July 6 – August 27, 2017: The season begins in a
simpler time, with the original high school musical GREASE. Dust off your
leather jackets, pull on your bobby-socks and take a trip back to 1959. Danny is
the hunky ‘bad boy’ and Sandy is ‘the girl next door.’ They meet and fall in
love – but will their different worlds keep them apart? Featuring unforgettable
songs including You’re The One That I Want, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To
You and Greased Lightnin’! It’s GREASE, the most “electrifyin’” musical
extravaganza on stage.
September 14 – October 29, 2017: Next up is GYPSY,
the rags to riches story of Louise, an awkward young girl who rose to national
fame as the burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee. Share the joy and heartbreak of
sisters Louise and June as well as Rose, their pushy backstage mother who lived
through her daughters. This thrilling musical brought together three greats of
the American Theatre – Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim – who
created unforgettable characters and a musical score that includes Let Me
Entertain You, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, and If Mama Was Married.
November 9 – December 31, 2017: For the holidays
there is the beloved family musical ANNIE. Based on the popular comic strip,
ANNIE has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards,
including Best Musical. Featuring book and score by Tony Award winners Thomas
Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, ANNIE includes such unforgettable
songs as It’s the Hard Knock Life, Easy Street, New Deal For Christmas, and the
eternal anthem of optimism, Tomorrow.
January 18 – March 4, 2018: Next is the Tony-Award
winning Best Musical ONCE. Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, ONCE
is a truly original Broadway experience. Featuring an impressive ensemble of
actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, ONCE tells the
enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who’s about to give up on his dream
when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his music. Emotionally
captivating and theatrically breathtaking, ONCE draws you in from the very first
note and never lets go. It’s an unforgettable story about going for your dreams
and the power of music to connect us all.
March 15 – April 29, 2018: For the fifth show the
audience is taken to Washington Heights with another Tony Award winner, IN THE
HEIGHTS. Before HAMILTON reinvented musical theatre, its creator, Lin-Manuel
Miranda, wowed Broadway with his first musical. IN THE HEIGHTS tells the
universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights
neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and
sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three
generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes,
dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which
traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
May 17 – July 1, 2018: The season concludes with the
musical adaptation of the classic film SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN. Experience the glitz
and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age. It’s 1927, and Don Lockwood and Linda
LaMont are the toast of Tinseltown until “talkies” come on the scene. Of course,
you remember Gene Kelly splashing his way through the famous MGM film – the
greatest movie musical ever made. But have you seen it live? Join us as we make
a big splash with this spectacular and romantic musical comedy. There will be
wonderful singin’ and dancin’ and, yes, it really will rain onstage.
Season Ticket Packages and Single Tickets now on sale.
Tickets: $73 - $78.
