Musicals at Richter 2013 Season Announced

Coming to the outdoor venue in Danbury

Official 2013 Season Announcement

Musicals at Richter is thrilled to announce the line-up for our 29th Season Under the Stars!

The 2013 summer productions will be...

Some Enchanted Evening
6 performances:
June 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Concept by Jeffrey B. Moss
for Jerry Kravat Ent. Services

More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and TV commercials and in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to them on the stage in their respective shows and we teach them to our children. This stunning collection of compositions place our talented performers in a theatrical setting where the songs are sung with their own style and sensibilities. This show offers the audience a glorified parade of genuine hits.

9 to 5: The Musical
8 performances:
July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20

Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton
Book by Patricia Resnick

Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do- even in a man's world. Set in the late 1970's, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about teaming up and taking care of business.

Cats
10 performances:
July 25, 26, 27, 28; August 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
by T.S. Elliot

Based on the universally popular poetry of T.S.Elliot, Cats tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heavenside layer. A true musical Phenomenon. Cats ran on Broadway for just over 18 years and has been touring the country ever since.

We will also be holding our Summer Youth Theater Musical Workshop which will stage three performances on August 15, 16, and 17. Stay tuned for our announcement of the workshop show!
