The 2023 Summer Classics Season is: 

CLUE: The Musical                April 19 – May 14, 2023 

Book by Peter DePietro; Music by Glaen Blum, Wayne Barker and Vinnie Martucci; Lyrics by Tom Chiodo  Based on the Parker Brothers’ Board Game

Who killed Mr. Boddy, with what, and where? It might be Mr. Plum with the wrench in the Library, Colonel Mustard with the candlestick in the Dining Room, or Mrs. Peacock with the rope in the kitchen? The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical that brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery! With all the potential murderers, weapons, and rooms, there are 216 possible solutions! Comic antics, witty lyrics, and beguiling tunes carry the investigation from suspect to suspect. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience!

  FOOTLOOSE                                  May 31 – June 25, 2023

Music by Tom Snow; Lyrices by Dean Pitchford, Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie; Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford; Additional Music by Eric Carmen Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small Texas town, he is not prepared for the local edict instituted by the local preacher that bans dancing! When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story pits a father longing for a lost son against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.  To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated score, plus dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

 

25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE   July 5 – July 30, 2023

Conceived by Rebecca Feldman, Additional Material by Jay Reiss; Music and Lyrics by William Finn; Book by Rachel Sheinkin Jerry Herman, Larry Alford and Wayne Cilento

Additional Materials by Jay Reiss; Originally Directed on Broadway by James Lapine; Originally produced on Broadway by David Stone, James L. Nederlander, Barbara Whitman, Patrick Catullo, Barrington Stage Company, Second Stage Theatre

An eclectic group of pubescent kids vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime.  While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the teens spell their way through a series of crazy words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.  Six spellers enter; one speller leaves triumphant!  At least the losers get a juice box! Great songs, great characters, one hilarious night at the theater!

 

 MAN OF LA MANCHA                     Aug. 16 – Sept. 10, 2023

Written by Dale Wasserman; Music by Mitch Leigh; Lyrics by Joe Darion;  Original Production Staged by Albert Marre/Originally Produced by Albert W. Selden and Hal James

Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most popular musicals!  Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ masterwork Don Quixote, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical!   Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial during the Spanish Inquisition.  He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself “Don Quixote” and goes on a quest to right all the wrongs in the world.  The rousing, Spanish-inflected source includes the classic numbers “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” “Dulcinea,” “I Really Like Him” and “Little Bird.”  A true classic, Man of La Mancha is an incredible, inspiring show for the ages!
