Theatre Un­der The Stars An­nounces Sum­mer Se­ries at Miller Out­door Theatre

Public News (Houston) - - PUBLIC NEWS EVENTS -

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.
