The North Texas Performing Arts Repertory Theatre announced its lineup for the 2023 Plano Summer Musicals Series with Grease! in the first half of the summer and Pippin in the second half.
The summer kicks off on June 16 with Grease!, featuring the Rydell High senior class of 1959. Lizz Bashore will be directing the classic tale with an artistic team including assistant director Malaisian Parker, choreographer Matt John West, assistant choreographer Mandy Scofeild, music director William Veer and set designer Jo Alamares.
The award-winning North Texas Performing Arts Repertory Theatre is proud to announce their lineup for the 2023 Plano Summer Musicals Series, including two exciting Broadway musicals sure to entice audiences, Grease performing June 16-25 and Pippin performing July 28-August 6 at Willow Bend Center of the Arts. Package tickets are available now including both shows starting at just $30.
“I’m excited to bring Grease to life in our Summer Musicals series. This show combines fast-paced, fun, classic music traditions with thought-provoking drama that, with a bit of a modern take, will illustrate how classic works can be just as powerful and evocative now as they were in their conception,” said Bashore.
After Grease!, Pippin kicks off on July 28. Pippin tells the story of a young man in his search to find true happiness in a tale of battle, political power and extraordinary endeavors. The play is directed by Irwin Daye with musical direction by Scotty Lee Clayton and set design by Jo Alamares.
Those interested can purchase the Plano Summer Musicals Ticket Package, which includes tickets to Grease! and Pippin and 25% of individual tickets.
