SHOWS

THE SOUND OF MUSIC: Arguably Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein’s most loved musical. It was also their last pairing as Hammerstein died less than a year after its Broadway debut. Based on the von Trapp family, this musical premiered on Broadway in 1959 then became the classic film starring Julie Andrews in 1965. The musical includes beloved songs such as “Edelweiss,” “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and the title song. Opens June 1.

THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES: Created by Roger Bean, this off-Broadway hit takes audiences to the Springfield High School prom in the late 1950s. As the girls share their stories and prepare for the prom, they also sing ’50s and ’60s hits such as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s My Party” and 20 more classics. Opens June 15.

A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC: Inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s “Smiles of a Summer Night,” Stephen Sondheim developed this musical which takes its English name from the German of Mozart’s Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major. The musical revolves around the relationships of several couples. It’s best known song is “Send in the Clowns.” “A Little Night Music” premiered on Broadway in 1973. Opens June 22.
