Rip Van Winkle: The Musical marks the 16th annual musical for the Housatonic Musical Theatre Society at Housatonic Valley Regional High School.
With 90% of the funding for the musical provided through ticket sales, sponsorships, and fundraising events, this year’s show features 40 students onstage, including students from Region One elementary schools, accompanied by a live orchestra, all helping to bring this new musical to life for four performances only, March 14-16 2019.
Created by Michael Berkeley and Ray Roderick with music and lyrics by Michael Berkeley, family, home, and what’s best about life -- tailor-made for the whole family in the great tradition of The Music Man. Rip Van Winkle brings new life to the Washington Irving tale through heartfelt, tuneful music, comedy, rousing dance, and a little gnomish mischief.
Tickets ($15 for adults, $10 for seniors/students/children) may be purchased at the door, online at HMTS.org, and at the Salisbury, Sharon, and Kent pharmacies.
Best & Cavallaro has been a proud sponsor of the Housatonic Musical Theatre Society since its inception sixteen years ago.
