OUR DAZZLING 2020 SUMMER THEATER LINEUP
KINKY BOOTS | JUNE 19 – JULY 12
“Sweetly, vivaciously, irresistibly good!” – The Washington Post
“So much fun you’ll dance out of the theater!” – ABC News
Kinky Boots is the winner of every major Best Musical award, including the Tony, the Grammy and London’s Olivier Award. Plus a Tony-winning score by musical icon Cyndi Lauper. Based on true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common—or so they think!
Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save the family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. Working together to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible. As it turns out, Lola is the one person who can help Charlie become the man that he is meant to be.
Together they discover that you change the world when you change your mind. Kinky Boots will have you dancing in the aisle and discovering that sometimes, the best way to fit in… is to stand out!
DIXIE’S TUPPERWARE PARTY
JULY 15 – JULY 19
“Not your grandmother’s tupperware party” – NBC Today Show
The hilarious off-Broadway smash returns to Saugatuck, featuring Dixie Longate, the fast-talking, gum chewing, ginger-haired Alabama gal who is bringing your grandma’s Tupperware party out of the living room and into the 21st century.
Audiences howl with laughter from her outrageously funny tales, homespun wisdom, audience participation and uses for Tupperware that you never thought possible. For anyone who has ever felt like they don’t matter, Dixie’s Tupperware Party is a southern tale of empowerment that leaves your heart a little bigger and your food a little fresher.
LEGALLY BLONDE | AUGUST 7 – 30
“A nonstop sugar rush of a show!” – New York Times
Based on the adored movie, the fabulously-fun, award-winning Legally Blonde: The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.
Elle appears to have it all, but her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her to attend Harvard Law School. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious institution. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex, but with the support of new friends, Elle realizes her potential and sets out to prove that being true to yourself never goes out of style, and may even help you succeed!
Filled with high-energy songs and explosive dancing, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!
The Show is On. Stay Informed.
