2019-2020 Mainstage Shows

Grand Rapids

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the irresistible, high-energy musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice combine a world of musical styles (from Western to Calypso; from Charleston to Pop) to creatively capture elements of Joseph’s journey from pit to palace. This humorous and explosive show bursts into vibrant life through a colorful palette of song and dance numbers!

Lansing

The Music Man follows Harold Hill, who poses as a musician and hatches a plot to sell musical instruments and uniforms to the gullible townsfolk of River City, Iowa, with the promise to turn them into a credible band. The local librarian, barbershop quartet, Pick-a-little ladies and a group of spirited teens are part of the many flavors of the unsuspecting community. Some of the many memorable melodies include “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Goodnight My Someone,” and “Wells Fargo Wagon.”

Kalamazoo

HONK! is a modern musical retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved tale of the ugly duckling. Honk! is peppered with wit and bursting with heart as audiences follow the “ugly” duckling’s journey to learn that what’s on the outside doesn’t always count. Marvelously funny and frequently touching, Honk! will delight children and adults alike.
