Anything Goes
June 19 - 27
Dale F. Halton Theater

The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes. This show tells an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores. It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYTHING GOES! Opening on Broadway in 1936, Anything Goes has entertained audiences every decade since as one of the most revived shows in Broadway history and with two film adaptations both staring Bing Crosby. Join us for this perennial Summer Theatre favorite as we tap dance our way across the deep blue sea.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.
July 1 - 11
Dale F. Halton Theater

Be Our Guest! The Academy Award-winning film Disney’s Beauty and the Beast comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairytale. Step into the enchanted world of Disney's Beauty and the Beast JR. Featuring songs from the Academy Award-winning animated feature film as well as many new numbers, this "tale as old as time" tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress.

Boeing Boeing
July 3 - 12 
Pease Auditorium

The Tony Award winning farce Boeing Boeing takes place in the swinging 1960s, and bachelor Bernard couldn't be happier with a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But when a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning, all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, and catastrophe looms. In 1991 The Guinness Book of Records named Boeing Boeing the most produced French play in history. With no fewer than 5 film adaptations (French, American with Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis, Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi), Boeing Boeing proves that laughter knows no language barriers. Come fly with us as we take a fun filled ride on Boeing Boeing this summer.

Young Frankenstein

It's Alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks' monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers comes this monster new musical comedy.
