SUMMIT PLAYHOUSE ANNOUNCES 2017-2018 SEASON & SUMMER OFFERINGS FOR YOUNG ACTORS

THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY
Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Book by Marsha Norman
Based on the novel by Robert James Waller

The path of Francesca Johnson's future seems destined when an unexpected fork in the road causes her to question everything she had come to expect from life. The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America's heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question "What if...?"

BOEING BOEING
Written by Marc Camoletti
Translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans

This non stop, high flying farce tells the story of Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each a beautiful airline hostess with frequent "layovers." He keeps "one up, one down, and one pending" until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard's apartment, and at the same time.

Harper Lee's
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel

Set in the small Southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Depression, To Kill a Mockingbird follows three years in the life of 8-year-old Scout Finch, her brother, Jem, and their father, Atticus. A classic of American literature, To Kill a Mockingbird tells a story of race, class, justice, and growing up that still resonates today.

Volunteer at the Playhouse...

Putting on a show requires a lot of volunteers, and we are always looking for those interested in being a part of it. It is great to take part in the many aspects of putting on a production. You get a certain feeling of pride when you see what you have contributed as you watch the show develop and point out that which you did to get it there. Please email us at summitplayhouseinfo@gmail.com if you would like to volunteer.
