The new season spotlights one of the greatest performers of the 20th century in My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra and one of the greatest musicals of all time, Singin’ in the Rain.
My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra celebrates the pivotal moments of Sinatra’s life, which would solidify his legendary status. This musical revue takes you from his early beginnings in the 1940’s swing era, to the bright lights of Las Vegas with the Rat Pack in the 1960’s, to his later success in the 1990’s.
Nicknamed Ole’ Blue Eyes, The Voice, The Sultan of Swoon, The Chairman of the Board, Sinatra is known as the greatest singer of the popular song and one of the most popular entertainers of the 20th century. His successful career spanned more than 50 years. Relive the magic of Sinatra’s songs with such hits as “Strangers in the Night”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “Fly Me to the Moon”, and “New York, New York”. This musical tribute will delight all generations.
My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra will run at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek from September 7-29, 2012.
Set in the late 1920s, Singin’ in the Rain is one of the most-loved and celebrated musicals of all time filled with humor, romance, dancing and singing as the stars comically struggle with their egos, as they transition from silent movies to talking pictures in pursuit of Hollywood stardom.
The show features a glorious score including “Good Morning”, “Make ‘Em Laugh” and the classic “Singin’ in the Rain”, as well as delightful and imaginative choreography, sure to entertain audiences of all ages.
Singin’ in the Rain will run at the Lesher Center for the Arts from February 8-March 2, 2013.
