Don’t miss the Prizery’s Summer Theater, featuring the fabled “Wizard of Oz” with a score by Andrew Lloyd-Webber, and “Anything Goes,” with music by Cole Porter. Mike will appear as a preacher in “Anything Goes,” just a year after being a priest in “Les Miserables.” Is he being typecast? Maybe he should go to divinity school.
Starting this Friday (June 19), join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto as they travel the universe of Dorothy’s imagination. Over 20 collegiate and professional actors and technicians join a local company of more than 50 people to bring this classic 1939 MGM film to life on stage. Shows at 7:30 p.m. June 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 and July 2-3. And 2:30 p.m. June 21, 24, 28 and July 1. Additional information at www.prizery.com.
And beginning July 10, you can see Anything Goes, the age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl, featuring wonderful tap-dancing numbers and songs such as “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “S’Wonderful” and “You’re the Top.” July 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m., and July 12, 15 and 19 at 2:30 p.m.
