2016-2017 Season Announcement!

Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre is thrilled to announce our
2016-2017 Season

Often called “the perfect musical,” join us for 3 weekends in November 2016
as we myfairladypresent My Fair Lady.

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, the story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady.

Featuring such classic and iconic songs as Wouldn’t it be Loverly, The Rain in Spain, I Could Have Danced All Night and On the Street Where You Live, you won’t want to miss this season opener!

Directed by Daren Carollo
Musical Direction by Brett Strader

 

The S. S. American is sailing between New York and England with a comically colorful assemblage of passengers: Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try to win the favor of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh), and a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13.” Song, dance, and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life.

Terrific Cole Porter songs include:
It’s De-Lovely, Friendship, I Get A Kick Out Of You, All Through The Night, Anything Goes, You’re The Top 
and Blow, Gabriel, Blow.
It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where Anything Goes!

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece.

As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lightsFoto Eva of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron ‘saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military’ was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evita creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

Memorable songs include Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, What’s New Buenos Aires, High Flying Adored and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.

Co-Directed and Choreographed by
Misty Mejia and Christina Lazo
Musical Direction by Rachel Robinson
