Pop the champagne and sip some bubbly as Theatre Lawrence kicks off its Summer Series with Some Enchanted Evening – The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein. OpeningJune 4th this nostalgic musical will be performed on the outdoor stage. This showcase of musical numbers from some of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s greatest shows is a wonderful way to welcome back live musical performances here at Theatre Lawrence.
More than those of any composer or lyricist writing for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower; we dance to them in ballrooms; we hear them on the radio and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermarkets, too.
This stunning collection of Rodgers & Hammerstein compositions places five performers in a theatrical setting: first ‘backstage,’ where the songs are sung as personal interplay, and then ‘onstage,’ where the songs are presented to an audience. Offering its performers an opportunity to explore timeless songs within their own styles and sensibilities, Some Enchanted Evening delights its audience with a glorious parade of genuine hits including musical numbers from Broadway favorites, The Sound of Music, The King and I, South Pacific, Oklahoma!, and more!
The cast includes Carly Graefe, Ryan Hamlin, Patrick Kelly, Secily Rees,
and Sarah Young.
