BROADWAY STAGE 2016 SEASON

BIG FISH
January 8-31, 2016
Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm


BIG FISH is a new Broadway musical featuring music and lyrics by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family, The Wild Party) and a new book by esteemed screenwriter John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre – for an experience that's richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

LEGALLY BLONDE
March 11-April 3, 2016
Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm 


LEGALLY BLONDE the Musical opened on Broadway in 2007. Based on the 2001 novel by Amanda Brown and the subsequent MGM film of the same name, the show was a popular addition to the 2007 Broadway season. LEGALLY BLONDE follows the story of sorority president Elle Woods as she crosses the country on a mission to find love at Harvard Law School. After discovering how the law can be used to help others, she uses her new found skills to defend a workout-queen in a murder trial, defying the odds and proving that pink can save the day! After a pre-Broadway engagement in San Francisco the musical opened on Broadway at The Palace Theatre in April 2007. RSP produced LEGALLY BLONDE a few seasons ago, and it was an enormous hit for the company.

AVENUE Q
April 22-May 29, 2016
Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm
Note: Performed at the West Sacramento Community Center Black Box Theatre.


AVENUE Q, back by popular demand, will be returning to the intimate stage at the West Sacramento Community Center Black Box Theatre (RSP’s summer home away from home). This Tony and Drama Desk award winning musical is the bawdy and hilarious story of New York's Avenue Q, where humans, puppets and even Gary Coleman (yes, THAT Gary Coleman) live and love in a world where they aren't quite as 'special' as their parents promised them they were and life's possibilities aren't as endless as they once seemed. MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY - Rated R for sexual situations, adult content and language.

ALL SHOOK UP
June 10-July 3, 2016
Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm

ALL SHOOK UP is a new musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It's NOT a biographical revue. Originally produced by RSP in 2007, ALL SHOOK UP takes place in 1955, somewhere in middle America, where one girl's dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar- playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Don't Be Cruel, Can't Help Falling in Love, and of course the title tune.

SHREK - THE MUSICAL
August 26-September 18, 2015
Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm


SHREK – THE MUSICAL Based on the award-winning DreamWorks animation film, SHREK - THE MUSICAL is this year’s must-see show for all the family. Join our unlikely hero and his loyal steed Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around! Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, SHREK - THE MUSICAL brings all the much-loved DreamWorks characters to life, live on stage, in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza. Join the adventure.

CATS
November 4-27, 2015
Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, this mega hit show is set amongst a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favorite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks. The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
