Cabrillo Music Theatre Announces 2013-2014 Season

Cabrillo Music Theatre celebrates its 20th Anniversary in the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza by announcing its 2013-2014 season of shows. The “Moving Forward, Looking Back,” season will offer a combination of classic and contemporary musicals, premieres and returning favorites. Here's a look at the shows!

KISS ME, KATE
October 18 – 27, 2013
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Sam and Bella Spewack
Take the music of Cole Porter, Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, a pompous director, a temperamental leading lady, singers, dancers, and a pair of stage-struck gangsters. Then put it all together, behind the scenes of a Broadway musical!  What do you get?  The long-demanded, never-produced Kavli Theatre premiere of the beloved classic, Kiss Me KateWinner of numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical in 1949 and Best Revival over fifty years later, Kiss Me Kate is considered by many to feature Cole Porter’s best score,  and includes “Too Darn Hot,” “Another Opening, Another Show,” “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” “So In Love Am I,” and “Wunderbar,” to name just a few.  


FOREVER PLAID
January 31 – February 9, 2014
Written and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Stuart Ross
Cabrillo Music Theatre proudly brings back this crowd-pleasing favorite. Frankie, Jinx, Sparky and Smudge – the Plaids – were on their way to their first big gig at the Airport Hilton Cocktail Bar when they were killed in an accident. Now, they are miraculously revived for the last chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was.

IN THE HEIGHTS
March 28 – April 6, 2014
Music & Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Book by Quiara Alegría
Conceived by Lin-Manuel Miranda
In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.  

BYE BYE BIRDIE
July 18 – 27, 2014
Book by Michael Stewart
Music by Charles Strouse
Lyrics by Lee Adams
The town of Sweet Apple, Ohio, goes bonkers when the nation’s most popular singer and heart-throb, Conrad Birdie, arrives to give his biggest fan one last kiss before going into the army – and on the Ed Sullivan Show, of course! Bye Bye Birdie combines humor, dance, nostalgia, satire, and rock-and-roll music with Cabrillo’s brand-new version of the Tony-winning hit.  “Put On A Happy Face,” “The Telephone Hour,” “Kids” and “A Lot of Livin’ To Do” lead the hit parade of songs in this fitting finale to Cabrillo’s 20th Anniversary Celebration!

A post-show discussion with cast and staff follows the first Saturday matinee of each production. A signed performance for the deaf and hard-of-hearing will take place on the second Friday night of each production.
