The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)
The Department of Theatre and Dance will present The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) June 7-10 in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre, Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. Performances begin at 7 p.m.
With music by Eric Rockwell, lyrics by Joanne Bogart and book by
Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart and directed by Mindy
Cooper, the show is a satirical homage to the best of musical
theatre, where one story
becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of
a different master of the form, sending up our most famous musical
theatre composers, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim,
Andrew Lloyd Weber, Jerry Herman, and Kander and Ebb. The old
“You must pay the rent. I can’t pay the rent. I’ll pay the rent” story
brought to life in five different musical styles.
Adult tickets are $20, faculty/staff tickets are $18 and student/senior tickets are $15. Ticket purchasing information to come.
The Department of Theatre and Dance is part of the UC Davis College of Letters and Science. For information about other department productions, visit theatredance.ucdavis.edu.
