Summer Theatre prepares for 49th season

“The Musical of Musicals,” a musical by Joanne Bogart and Eric Rockwell, kicks off this year’s Minot State University’s Summer Theatre season. Arranged into five acts which are musicals within the larger musical, each act pays tribute to an American or British musical theatre composer or composer/lyricist team. It runs from June 13 to 18.

Other scheduled productions include the comedy “See How They Run,” which runs June 26-30. Monty Python’s “Spamalot” is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the film, the play is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but the play and film differ greatly. This show runs July 8 to 12.

 “Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” a 1985 musical with a book by William Hauptman and music and lyrics by Roger Miller, will run July 18 to 23. Based on Mark Twain’s classic, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” this musical features bluegrass and country music.

“Like every season, I'm really excited about getting the season started. That’s the best part. said Kevin Neuharth, Summer Theatre director. “I'm looking forward to good weather, new shows and a great season.”
