This beloved Meredith Willson musical about fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill truly is a first. It is the very first show our company staged in the Kavli Theatre back in 1994! 5-Star’s production is going to be a bang-beat, bell-ringin’ smash packed with brassy favorites like “76 Trombones,” “Well Fargo Wagon,” “Ya Got Trouble,” “Shipoopi” and the beautiful ballads “Till There Was You” and “Goodnight My Someone.”
You can dance, you can jive and you’ll have the time of your life when 5-Star stages this massively popular musical for the first time. The impossible-to-resist hits of the Swedish pop group ABBA power this sunny, funny show about a young woman’s search for her birth father. Whether you grew up bopping to the beat of hits like “Dancing Queen,” “Take a Chance On Me,” “Chiquita” and “Money, Money, Money,” or you discovered ABBA on the big screen, 5-Star’s production will lift you higher than a pair of bedazzled platform boots.
Stop the presses! 5-Star is proud to present the regional premiere of this rousing musical about standing your ground and fighting for what’s right. Based on the 1992 Walt Disney film and inspired by the true story of the 1899 New York City newsboy strike, the show follows a scrappy band of ink-stained street kids as they push back against the corporate greed of Big Apple media barons Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. “Newsies” features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (“Little Shop of Horrors,” “Sister Act”) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (“Kinky Boots”). Songs like “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe” deliver a powerful, timeless message: “Wrongs will be righted, if we’re united.”
