Theatre Under the Stars 2013 Season: TUTS Vancouver

Comments 127 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Theatre Under the Stars (“TUTS”) is ramping up for another season of entertainment at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park. Tickets are now on sale for this summer’s shows: Legally Blonde: The Musical and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying which will play on alternating nights from July 8th to August 17th, 2013.

TUTS VancouverLegally Blonde: The Musical
Written by Heather Hach, Laurence O’Keefe and Neil Benjamin, is an exhilarating re-imagining of the hit film about sorority girl Elle Woods, her little dog Bruiser and other favourite characters who take Harvard Law School by storm, learning a few things about love and life along the way. Legally Blonde will mark the TUTS directorial debut of the very talented Valerie Easton, who will be joined by music director Danny Balkwill at the helm of this sensational Broadway hit.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
Written by the talented Frank Loesser, filters the era of “Mad Men” through a wonderfully comic lens, and features some of the best songs ever written for the musical theatre. Recent revivals on Broadway have featured Matthew Broderick, Daniel Radcliffe and Nick Jonas. The creative team for How to Succeed will include TUTS alumni Sarah Rodgers (director of previous TUTS hits such as Anything Goes and The Music Man), choreographer Shelley Stewart Hunt (Bye Bye Birdie, Singin’ in the Rain) and music director Chris King (Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Music Man).

Season passes are already sold out but show tickets are still available online and by calling (604) 696-4295. Book by June 15, 2013 and receive an early bird discount of $5 off all tickets. Come hungry and enjoy offerings from the TUTS Cafe like salmon BBQ and hamburger combos.

Theatre Under the Stars has been a mainstay of Vancouver summertime entertainment since 1940 when it was the premiere event at the Malkin Bowl when it first opened up. In the early 1960s production shut down but the TUTS company was revived by enthusiasts in 1969. Things came to a halt once again in 1982 when the Malkin Bowl was ravaged by fire but TUTS soldiered on.

    I think I’d enjoy either show, really, but I guess my vote is for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. I’ve never been to TUTS, so this sounds like a good opportunity. ๐Ÿ™‚
