Guys and Dolls
Guys are gambling, dolls are dancing, and the audience comes up a winner with the revered GUYS AND DOLLS. Colorful characters abound, as suave Sky Masterston wages a bet on whether he can woo the buttoned up Sister Sarah Brown. Sky makes the bet with shifty Nathan Detroit, who puts the crap game ahead of his long-suffering fiancée, Adelaide, to whom he's been engaged for 14 years. We're going to raise the roof with treasured songs that include Luck Be A Lady, Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat, I've Never Been In Love Before, and the title tune. Winner of 9 Tony Awards, plus three Broadway revivals, GUYS AND DOLLS has spawned a hit movie, with a new film version on the way. Cabrillo Music Theatre delivers a sure bet with its splashy production. Cabrillo is pleased to open GUYS AND DOLLS just after the close of the Broadway production. Recommended for all audiences.
Irving Berlin's: White Christmas
Straight from Broadway to your Backyard, Cabrillo Music Theatre brings to the stage IRVING BERLIN'S: WHITE CHRISTMAS. Having just completed its Broadway run, Cabrillo will open this Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza premiere Christmas weekend, 2009. IRVING BERLIN'S: WHITE CHRISTMAS is based on the beloved film starring Bing Crosby and featuring Danny Kaye as veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, a successful song-and dance duo post World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow two beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander. The lavish production features elaborate dance, splendid costumes, and Irving Berlin's 1942 Academy Award Winner Best Original Song, White Christmas. Plus, 16 other famed Berlin tunes, including Blue Skies, How Deep Is The Ocean, and I Love A Piano. It's both a merry and enchanting adventure. Your favorite SINGIN' IN THE RAIN duo, David Engel and Randy Rogel, make a return engagement to perform in the Bing Crosby/Danny Kaye roles. The entire family will thrill to this spectacular holiday musical. Please note: this show is NOT included in your subscription. It may be added to your subscription at half price. Recommended for all audiences.
The Andrews Brothers
Following in the success of last season's BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO, Cabrillo Music Theatre presents another Civic Arts Plaza memory-lane premiere. It's a non-stop cavalcade of musical memories from the '40s. Mistaken identities, madcap comedy, and the greatest musical treasures of the 1940's fill this sweet and hilarious show. Three soldiers find themselves giving the performance of a lifetime when a certain singing trio of siblings fail to arrive at their USO gig. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, On A Slow Boat To China, Shoo Shoo Baby, and Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree are favorites in this valentine to World War II heroes. The Ovation Award-winning THE ANDREWS BROTHERS is complete with slapstick comedy, old-fashioned romance, and nostalgic music. Recommended for families and all audiences.
Little Shop of Horrors
A down-and-out floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a special talent... an insatiable appetite for fresh blood. “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, R&B-singing plant that offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature preparing for global domination! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful, and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Little Shop of Horrors never fails to entertain.
Be dazzled with the magic only CINDERELLA can bring. A pumpkin swooshes across the stage, turning into a carriage... mice scurry along on their way to becoming horses... and an innocent young woman named Cinderella turns into a beautiful fairy princess. CINDERELLA will make “impossible things” happen right before your very eyes on stage, delighting children, enchanting adults. CINDERELLA’s memorable score includes In My Own Little Corner, It’s Possible, Ten Minutes Ago, and Do I Love You Because You’re Wonderful. Cabrillo is delighted to bring to the stage that Rodgers and Hammerstein classic... CINDERELLA! Adding her own special magic to Cabrillo’s production is “All In The Family” comedienne, Sally Struthers, as “The Fairy Godmother.” Recommended for families and all audiences.
