Blithe Spirit

By Noel Coward
Performances: Sept. 2-18, 2016
Auditions: July 17-18, 2016


The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantakerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium", one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles' current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, "passes over", joins Elvira and the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity. See the promo or the production photos today!

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical!
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

Over 5200 patrons will see Mary Poppins. Can't find a good seat? We just added a Saturday matinee (22 July at 2 PM)! Get your tickets before we sell out! Check out the production photos or see a video on making the magic for Mary Poppins!

My Fair Lady

Music by Frederick Loewe
Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
Performances: Feb 10-26, 2017
Auditions: Oct 23-24, 2016

Based on Shaw’s play and Pascal’s movie “Pygmalion,” with book, music and lyrics by Lerner and Loewe, MY FAIR LADY is triumphant. Henry Higgins, a Professor of Phonetics, encounters Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, one cold March night at Covent Garden market. He declares to his friend Colonel Pickering that in three months he could transform Eliza into a duchess. Experience our version through the production photos!

Over the course of several months Eliza, who moves into the Higgins household, is put through a gruelling course of phonetics and elocution lessons by Higgins. Eliza's moment of triumph comes at the Embassy Ball. She is beautiful, elegant and well-spoken and proves to be an enormous success particularly with the young gentleman Freddy Eynsford-Hill who falls desperately in love with her.

After the ball Eliza falls into despondency as she sees Higgins celebrating his triumph in passing Eliza off as a duchess, showing little consideration for her feelings. Unnoticed, she slips out of Higgins' house and seeks consolation with Higgins' mother. Higgins comes in search of her but Eliza refuses to return with him.

Back at his flat he sinks into his chair prepared to face a bleak, lonely future. But just then-a moment before the final curtain falls-a figure emerges from the shadowy corner of the room, and Higgins recognizes Eliza.

Miracle on 34th Street

Performances: Dec. 2-18, 2016
Auditions: Oct. 9-10, 2016

By chance, Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, gets a job working as Santa for Macy's. Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy's customers and the commercial world of New York City by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy's vocational counselor, who plots to have Kris shanghaied to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl's belief in Santa. In a dramatic decision, the court confirms Kris as the true Santa, allowing Susan and countless other children to experience the joy of childhood fantasy. Check out the production photos or read about us in Dockline Magazine! Be prepared for wintry weather!

Miracle on 34th now holds the Christmas attendance record and is the #2 all-time attended show with 4266 tickets issued to date (Shrek the Musical is #1 with 4304 tickets). See the all-time records list!

Addams Family – The Musical

Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams
Location: Crighton Theatre
Auditions: July 25-26, 2016 (Monday and Tuesday)
Performances: Oct. 21-Nov. 6, 2016
Rated: PG-13

In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus Lippa, Brickman, and Elice’s musical: the Addams kids are growing up. The Addamses have lived by their unique values for hundreds of years and Gomez and Morticia, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, would be only too happy to continue living that way. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday, however, is now an eighteen year-old young woman who is ready for a life of her own. She has fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family — the most un-Addams sounding person one could be! And to make matters worse, she has invited the Beinekes to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change. Check out our production pictures thanks to Dave Clements!

Shrek the Musical Breaks Ticket Record

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Shrek the Musical! This show broke the record for the highest number of tickets (4285 tickets) for any event in Crighton Theatre history by surpassing the Buddy Holly Story in 2008 (4096 tickets). Having been in both shows, I can tell you that both were incredible musicals and very popular with audiences. Both ran a minimum of 10 performances. Both shows had talented casts and awesome backstage crews. But as Gen. Patton once said, "all glory is fleeting". The cast and crew will miss working together but will support each other as they embark on new adventures. Now on to the next show!
