The Allen Theatre at ACT Theatre

Produced in Partnership with the ACTLab program.

Directed by Matt Wolfe

Music Direction by Nathan Young

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?”

Illsely Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall
Produced in Association with Village Theatre
Directed by Steve Tomkins

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 Rogers 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.
