Theatre Under The Stars Announces Summer Series at Miller Outdoor Theatre
Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) is excited to announce their annual summer show performance series at Miller Outdoor Theatre.
First up, the Theatre Under The Stars’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) will present ONCE ON THIS ISLAND with book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty, playing June 7-10, 2017. Different from previous years, HSMT will be presenting the fulllength production for all morning and evening performances.
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is a celebrated tale of love, hope, life and death. This musical, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, follows the life of Ti Moune as she goes on her quest to prove that love is stronger than death. The show is based on the novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy.
HSMT’s presentation of ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is sponsored in part by the Edward and Helen Oppenheimer Foundation, the Miller Theatre Advisory Board and The Wortham Foundation, Inc.
Later in the summer, Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) will present PIPPIN, with book by Roger O. Hirson and music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, playing July 11-16 2017.
PIPPIN, a circus inspired production, features a troupe of acrobatic performers led by a very charismatic Leading Player. The performers’ main purpose is to tell the story of Pippin, a young prince who is longing to find adventure and passion in all areas of his life.
The Theatre Under The Stars produc- tion of PIPPIN is sponsored in part by The Brown Foundation, Inc., The Wortham Foundation, Inc., the Miller Theatre Advisory Board, the George and Mary Josephine Hamman Foundation and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
