Repertory Company Theatre has a diverse selection of productions slated for the summer: An ironic musical about a musical; the classic story of the most famous red-headed orphan; and hillbilly spoof.
“The Drowsy Chaperone” (June 15-25) is a Tony award-winning comedy set in the 192os. Its central character is a musical theater fan whose favorite show comes to life while he offers his own clever commentary.
“Annie” (July 20-29) follows the spunky and optimistic redhead who sings about the “hard-knock life” of a New York City, Depression-era orphan.
“Lil’ Abner” (Aug. 17-26) is, like “Little Orphan Annie”, based on an old-time comic strip about a hillbilly clan making their way a life of poverty.
Each show runs for two weekends. Tickets are $25 for adults, $24 for youth and $20 for seniors. Call the box office at 972.690.5029. RCT is in the Promenade Theatre on Coit just south of Arapaho.
