Each summer we kick off and end our season with big musicals – those fantastic spectacles that get your toes tapping and hearts beating for a summer of exciting music making. Opening the season with a musical showcases the majority of our emerging artists to our adoring fans and (perhaps more importantly) give these artists opportunities to bond with one another — nothing bonds folks like learning a tap dance number together — and gel as an ensemble. The closing musical is a last hurrah of sorts; after 8 weeks of singing, dancing, sweating, and making music together, the final show is where each artist, surrounded by their new colleagues and lifelong friends, gets to give it their all one last time. This year is no exception – we will open our mainstage season on July 3 with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and thesummer season will come to its grand finale on August 17th with the last performances of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!
