For more than 75 years, Theatre Under the Stars has brought soaring works of musical theatre to the crown jewel of Vancouver – Stanley Park. TUTS’ 2018 season offers two song-and-dance filled fables – one of a rags-to-riches princess who finds her prince charming, the other of an aspiring theatre star who gets her lucky break on Broadway.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella is a magical musical of dreams come true and happily ever after. The timeless enchantment of the fairy tale classic is given fresh life by the creators of The Sound of Music, South Pacific, and Oklahoma!. Brimming with wit and warmth, the TONY Award®- winning musical promises to transport the hearts of children and adults alike with Fairy Godmothers, glass slippers, and the triumph of true love.
42nd Street is Broadway’s big, brassy song and dance extravaganza. The story’s heroine is Peggy Sawyer. Fresh off the bus from small-town America, Peggy is just another face in the chorus line in Broadway’s newest, glitziest show; But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might finally get her shot at stardom.
Adapted from the cult classic 1933 film (which featured choreography from the legendary Busby Berkeley), the musical is a celebratory ode to the grandest movie musicals of yesteryear. 42nd Street is bursting with all-time classics, including ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘Shuffle Off to Buffalo’, ‘We’re in the Money’, and the titular show-stopping, tap-dance spectacular.
