THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, JUNE 15-25: What a way to start the Summer Musicals —Repertory Company Theatre’s 2012 Summer Musicals opens with one of its most satisfying productions in years, a fast-flying, half-cynical, half-sweet version of the musical-within-a-narrative-within-a-musical, "The Drowsy Chaperone."
Bringing its five Tony awards straight from Broadway, Drowsy Chaperone will delight and dazzle! This remarkably funny new musical has everything - beautiful chorus girls, an oil tycoon, gangsters in disguise, mistaken identities, and an unflappable English butler all in the quiet comfort of one man's living room. Don't miss this sensational new show!
ANNIE, JULY 20-29: Have the time of your hard knock life! It's Christmas in July as Repertory Company Theatre presents "Annie," a Broadway tuner that expresses the quintessential spirit of American optimism, through July 29. The popular comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world's most beloved musicals. Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. Featuring It's A Hard Knock Life, You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile, Easy Street, and of course, Tomorrow, there is no better way to spend the summer than with this award-winning show!
LI’L ABNER, AUG 17-26: If you're looking for a fun-filled, foot-stompin' musical taken directly from the comics, then LI'L ABNER is for you. It's pure entertainment; a side-splitting extravaganza for all. If I Had My Druthers, Jubilation T. Cornpone, Namely You, Love in a Home, Progress Is the Root of All Evil, Rag Off'n the Bush and The Country's in the Very Best of Hands will keep you laughing. The show is laced with gentle satire, rib-tickling humor, and a host of brash, catchy tunes.
