West Side Story at the Craterian


West Side Story

West Side Story Poster

West Side Story

This landmark musical updates the story of Romeo and Juliet to the urban jungle of 1950’s New York.

Broadway was never the same after the jolt delivered by this powerhouse show, whose stunning choreography, soaring music, and searing story of racial tension retain all their original impact. Leonard Bernstein’s matchless score features such classic songs as “Something’s Coming,” “Maria” and “Tonight.”

Camelot Theater does “Sound of Music”


Sound of Music at Camelot Theater  Mar 13 – April 14

Camelot Theater Does the Classic Sound of Music

My friend Diana Roome sent me this email message:

If you like musicals, Talent’s Camelot Theater production of The Sound of Music (starting next week and running until mid-April) is going to be quite electrifying.  I know — I’ve been watching rehearsals!  In fact, I’ve had the novel experience of being part of them, as a singing nun — which has given me a renewed respect for what it takes to put on a show.  The lead singers and the von Trapp children are outstanding, and the place is oozing with energy and talent.  I realize for some it might be a little far to come all the way to Oregon — even to see such a production! — but thought you might be tickled to see the flyer anyway.

Shrek The Musical at the Craterian


Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

This hilarious, high-spirited Broadway hit draws its inspiration from the hugely popular movie, a sardonically witty, yet touching fractured fairy tale featuring a lovable ogre, a wise-cracking donkey, a pint-sized, big-headed villain, and a damsel in distress, who is more than she seems.

Boasting a book and score by award-winning writers Jeanine Tesori and David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek the Musical is family entertainment at its most sublime!

Nunset Blvd at the Craterian


Nunset Blvd

Dan Goggin’s “Nunset Blvd.”

Dan Goggin’s Nunset Blvd, starring Cindy William.

This final installment in the Nunsense franchise — perhaps the most successful series in theater history — stars Cindy Williams, better known as “Shirley” to fans of the long-running TV sitcom Laverne and Shirley.

In Nunset Boulevard, the Little Sisters of Hoboken are thrilled to be invited to sing at the Hollywood Bowl — until they discover that the venue is actually the Hollywood Bowl-a-Rama Bowling Alley. Hijinks, both comical and musical, of course ensue.

Go here for more information on the nunsensical (sorry couldn’t resist) revue.
