Welcome to Showtunes Theatre Company’s

18th Season!

Single Tickets are Now on Sale!

From October 27 to Nov 5, 2017, you can see our first production, the Northwest premiere of Bridges of Madison County at ACT Theatre. Our new partnership as part of the ACTLab program continues this year, and we’ll be presenting Bridges in the same format as our successful production of Shenandoah last year. In a three-quarter round presentation in the Allen Theatre, audiences will be surrounded by this beautiful score by Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years), and they will be up close and personal with this intimate story adapted by Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden).

 

The Broadway production of Bridges ran for just three short months in early 2014. We’ve committed to bringing recent Broadway gems to Seattle as well as the classics, and this one hasn’t been able to be heard yet in our region. The Broadway adaptation delivers gorgeous ballads and heartfelt folk music. It’s equal parts joyful and haunting as it explores the deepest question in all of our lives, “Did I choose the right path?”

Then, we return to grand “Classic Showtunes Style” at Benaroya Hall from March 23-25, 2018 with a production of The Boys from Syracuse, by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. You won’t believe how many songs you know from this adaptation of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, including “This Can’t Be Love” and “Falling in Love with Love”.

 

But above all, it’s fantastic, fun comedy all based around one of the most classic plots of all, the mistaken identity. They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore. This production is being produced by Showtunes in association with Village Theatre as part of the city-wide “Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare” festival sponsored by the 5thAvenue Theatre. We’re teaming up with Village Theatre and joining the whole Seattle arts community in celebrating Shakespeare and one of the most successful musical adaptations of his work. The show will be directed by master of farce and classic comedy Steve Tomkins, Artistic Director of Village Theatre.

Shenandoah – October 2016

In October, Showtunes produced its inaugural production as part of the ACTLab program at ACT Theatre. We were honored to be given permission to present Broadway classic Shenandoah from a brand new perspective. Seattle veteran Anne Allgood re-interpreted the role of Charlie Anderson, made famous by John Cullum and Jimmy Stewart, as a mother fighting to hold her family together during the Civil War.
Shenandoah features music by Gary Geld, lyrics by Peter Udell, and a book by Udell, Philip Rose and James Lee Barrett, based on Barrett’s original screenplay for the 1965 film.

Leap of Faith – December 2016

In December, Leap of Faith made its first appearance in the Pacific Northwest since its original run in New York. Audiences here finally had a chance to hear its soaring gospel score by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act, Newsies) come to life in our biggest concert ever! Leading the cast was Louis Hobson, Broadway and Seattle veteran, who had been part of the original Broadway show.
In addition to Alan Menken’s music, Leap of Faith features lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Janus Cercone and Slater.

 

The Unsinkable Molly Brown – March 2017

The Unsinkable Molly Brown celebrates the spirit of an American woman who emerged from the backwoods of Colorado, danced her way through the ballrooms of the world’s elite, and survived the sinking of the Titanic.
Not only did we have an amazing production team led by Director Billie Wildrick and Music Director Nathan Young, but we cast eight local powerhouse performers to share the role of Molly Brown, capturing the spirit of this American folk hero through multiple perspectives.
