Kicking off the season Dec. 7-8 is “Anastasia,” a musical inspired by the 1997 film of the same name. Set in the 1920s, the story follows a young woman who attempts to understand the mystery of her past, all while evading a Soviet officer who’s on her trail.
“South Pacific” arrives Jan. 5-6, featuring iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein songs such as “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “Some Enchanted Evening” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.” The Pulitzer Prize-winning story centers around two love affairs on a tropical island during WWII.
“Cats” will arrive Jan. 31-Feb. 1. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical takes the audience to an annual cat ball, where its members celebrate and decide which cat will be reborn. Many know these songs by heart: “Memory,” “Mr. Mistoffelees,” “The Rum Tum Tugger.”
Finally, “An Officer and a Gentleman,” the 2012 musical based on the 1982 film of the same name that starred Richard Gere and Debra Winger, will polish off the season March 2-3. It features the Grammy Award-winning No. 1 hit “Up Where We Belong,” recorded by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes for the film.
