Tickets Available for Musical Theatre Guild's New Season

Stop the World

Tickets for MTG’s previously announced 2009-2010 season are currently on sale. Get them while you can, as an evening with MTG is truly a pleasure. Upcoming musicals include:

Stop the World – I Want to Get Off
Book, music & lyrics by Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley
September 14, 2009 – Alex Theatre, Glendale
September 20, 2009 – Scherr Forum, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza

Set in the non-stop circus of life, Stop the World focuses on the iconic Littlechap, whose first major step toward improving his lot is to marry his boss' daughter, Evie. After romancing Anya, Ilse and Ginnie (funny how they all look like Evie), Littlechap comes to ultimately realize that what he always had was what he wanted all along.

Fade Out – Fade In
Book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, music by Jule Styne
November 9, 2009 – Alex Theatre, Glendale

November 15, 2009 – Scherr Forum, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza

Originally starring Carol Burnett as Hope Springfield, a chorus girl full of hope but not much talent, the show spoofs some of the great film stars of the 1930’s, such as Shirley Temple and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, with a score that is pure Jule Styne brass.

High Spirits
Book, lyrics, and music by Hugh Martin and Timothy Gray
Based on the play Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward
February 22, 2010 – Alex Theatre, Glendale

Blithe Spirit is reinvented as a sassy, sly and successful 60's musical. In this sparkling tuneful version, the mischievous spirit of Elvira, the first Mrs. Condomine, bedevils writer Charles Condomine and his wife. Eccentric medium Madame Arcati conjures up the naughty ghost and endeavors to send her back to the other world.

Irma La Douce
Music by Margureite Monnot, lyrics and book by Alexandre Breffort, English lyrics and book by Julian More, David Heneker and Monty Norman.
April 19, 2010 – Alex Theatre, Glendale
April 25, 2010 – Scherr Forum, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza

Set in Paris, this French and West End import revolves around Irma, a carefree Montmartre streetwalker whose life is turned upside down when she falls in love with Nestor le Fripé, a poor law student who assumes the disguise of a rich older man in order to keep her for himself.

Das Barbecu
Book and lyrics by Jim Luigs, music by Scott Warrender
June 14, 2010 – Alex Theatre, Glendale

An official participant in the Ring Festival LA, this off-Broadway hit is set in various locations throughout present day Texas. It is very loosely based on Richard Wagner's massive four-part 20-hour Ring Cycle, but manages to neatly (and hysterically) compress the story into a rollicking two-hour musical comedy with a country and western score.

Season tickets are on sale now through the Alex Theatre Box Office or by calling 818-243-ALEX. Single tickets are also available.

Single tickets to the Scherr Forum are available by calling Ticketmaster at 805-538-8700 or at the Civic Arts Plaza box office. Visit or call 818-848-6844 or for complete schedule and venue information.
