Last summer’s Mary Poppins marked the professional musical theatre’s 124th production since its 1984 inaugural season. For the 2015 season, the company will present three musicals new to the SSMT stage — A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Addams Family and The Wiz — and conclude with a perennial family favorite, The Music Man.
Patrons of the theatre will also see a revised performance schedule and a streamlined pricing structure. For details, please visit: http://shenandoahsummermusictheatre.com/purchase-tickets/
In 1984, then-Producing Artistic Director Harold Herman founded Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre, a professional summer stock theatre company, on the campus of Shenandoah University. Herman’s goals were to provide affordable, fully-staged family entertainment in the community of Winchester/Frederick County and to give Shenandoah Conservatory’s students the opportunity to work in a professional setting before venturing out to pursue their own careers.
Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre produces four Broadway musicals each summer in the beautiful 630-seat Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre on the campus of Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA. Eleven performances are given of each musical over a two-week period, drawing audiences from a 150-mile radius with groups traveling in from as far away as Ohio and North Carolina.
