Ogunquit Playhouse Opens


ogunquitplayhouseBroadway Returns to Ogunquit!
On Wednesday May 20, the curtains go up at the Ogunquit Playhouse to begin the 77th season! This season includes some of Broadway’s most beloved classics along with two brand new productions; all taking you on a musical journey down memory lane. Back by popular demand, the blockbuster Disney High School Musical will entertain audiences of all ages, while the Children’s Theater program expands, now offering shows on both Saturdays and Sundays.
Filled with song, dance and magic; every show this season will leave you with a spring in your step and a song in your heart!
The opening show is A Chorus Line, running from May 20-Jume 13. Starring Lorenzo Llamas and winner of nine Tony Awards, this “One Singular Sensation” follows 17 would-be dancers in their quest to make the cut for a new Broadway Musical. The quintessential backstage musical, A Chorus Line, recreated on the Playhouse stage, complete with Broadway sets and costumes, offers an intimate look at the lives of gypsy dancers and their quest for a spot on the line. It’s what they’ve worked for-with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. One by one, they come forward to share their stories. They put themselves on the line to get a job on the line. When they’re done, so is the audition. And only eight will remain….
Following A Chorus Line will be Shout, a swinging 60’s sensation, running from June 17-July 11.Then comes Guys and Dolls, running from July 15- August 8, Singin’ in the Rain, running from August 12- September 12, and finally All Shook Up, with all Elvis hits and starring Sally Struthers, running from September 16- October 11.
See you at the Playhouse.
