Huron Country Playhouse offers 7 productions for 2015
Seven productions will take centre stage at Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend with an ambitious 2015 Season of “Music, Laughter … and all that jazz!”
“This season promises to be remembered for years to come,” says Artistic Director Alex Mustakas. “We have planned a season full of magical moments, complete with Broadway blockbusters, heartwarming comedies, nostalgic musical tributes, and lots of family fun.
Huron Country Playhouse: Mainstage
The 2015 Season kicks off with the most popular musical in Canadian history, Anne of Green Gables, on stage June 11th to June 27th. Journey to the shores of Prince Edward Island and follow the misadventures of Anne Shirley, a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan who will immediately capture your heart with her irrepressible spirit.
Next up is the hotly anticipated production of Chicago, July 2nd to July 18th. Bob Fosse’s energetic, cabaret style musical continues to seduce audiences worldwide. Winner of six Tony® Awards, Chicago glitters hypnotically with brassy songs, astonishing dancing, biting satire, and of course, all that jazz.
After a sold-out engagement at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse last fall, Footloose is dancing its way onto the Huron Country Playhouse stage, July 23rd to August 8th. Based on the beloved 80s movie, Footloose is the feel-good story about a young rebel who inadvertently heals the heart of a small town when he encourages the local youth to defy the strict edict of the local pastor and hold a rock ‘n’ roll dance.
From the creators of last year’s sensation, Twist and Shout: The British Invasion, comes another production in the perennially popular Legends series of tribute shows that will put a snap in your fingers and a song in your heart. Legends … of Rock ‘n’ Roll relives the incredible discography from the 1950s through 1970s that forever changed the landscape of modern music. Such influential acts as Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, The Beach Boys, Elton John, ABBA, and Simon & Garfunkel are celebrated in this tribute to musical pioneers, August 13th to August 29th.
Huron Country Playhouse II
Check in for a weekend of laughs with the lighthearted, racy comedy Sexy Laundry, on stage June 11th to June 27th. A couple checks into a swanky hotel room for a romantic getaway, all in the hope of rekindling some much-needed passion – but jumpstarting their stale love life proves infinitely more difficult, and hilarious, than anticipated.
Last Chance Romance is a topsy-turvy romantic comedy about the perils of finding “the one.” Its frothy, fun look at the absurdity of love, will warm your heart and tickle your funny bone. The production runs July 2nd to July 18th.
After the success of last season’s production of Peter Pan: The Panto, comes Snow White: The Panto. In the British Panto tradition where audiences cheer the hero and boo the villain, this lively production boasts a winning combination of incredible musical numbers, slapstick comedy, outrageous costumes, audience participation, and of course, seven dwarfs. Once again, there will be opportunities for local youth to participate in the production as members of the Children’s Chorus. Audition details will be made available in the New Year. Snow White: The Panto will entertain theatregoers of all ages July 29th to August 29th.
