SEVEN AMAZING 2019 THEATRE WEST EVENTS

ONLY  TWO 2019 SEASON PRODUCTIONS REMAIN! 

“THE MUSIC MAN”  

 July  18, 19, 20,25, 26, 27 @ 7:30 and July 20 @ 2:00

This classic musical is by turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching.  The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.


WELCOME TO THE “LION KING JR. EXPERIENCE

July 27 & 28 @ 2:00 P.M.

Disney’s THE LION KING has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world and now, for the first time ever, you have the opportunity to produce this one-of-a-kind musical as a Jr musical youth production.  With familiar music, the African savannah comes to life on your stage in “LION KING JR”  with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle… and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.  This 90-minute musical production is a final accomplishment by the participants of Theatre West’s Theatre Opportunity For Youth (TOFY) Camp.  It is a beautiful experience to be enjoyed by audience members of all ages!!!!!!!  Don’t Miss It!


“FOREVER PLAID” /  CLOSED JUNE 22nd 

One of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory, this deliciously fun revue was chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies!

Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the “Plaids” were a smash hit, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that kept audiences rolling in the aisles when they were not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.


“TO THE MOON, WITH LOVE” / Panhandle Library Tour  / CLOSED!  

Theatre West wrote and presented an original production performed by high school youth for 17 Nebraska Panhandle Libraries and additional venues.  Kids across the region enjoyed a touring musical written by Theatre West’s Lauren Newell.  Based on the national summer reading program theme, “TO THE MOON AND BACK” celebrated the 50th anniversary of the walk on the moon.   This tour took place in mid-June throughout the Nebraska panhandle libraries.   


THEATRE WEST TWILIGHT GARDEN WALK – a  fund raiser / PAST  EVENT!

The 27th Annual THEATRE WEST TWILIGHT GARDEN WALK  fund raiser was held on Sunday, June 30, 2019 from 4:00 – 8:00 P.M.    This special treat  included a self-guided tour of  six beautiful area gardens.  Tickets were sold in all Scottsbluff, Gering, and Torrington nurseries, Compliments, The Mixing Bowl, and at the Theatre West Box Office.




“SHREK”

July 5, 6 @ 7:30 and July 6 @ 2:00 / CLOSED JULY 6TH!

Theatre West presents the Oscar-winning DreamWorks theatre production.   Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
