From the streets of Jersey to the hills of Austria and wilds of Neverland, the 2018-19 Broadway Spotlight Series will offer a far-flung experience.
"We're very excited about this year's season," said Sherman Bass, general manager of the Amarillo Civic Center Complex, which co-produces the season with Celebrity Attractions in Tulsa.
The season will include:
- Jersey Boys, the wildly popular jukebox musical tracing the rise of '60s group Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. It'll get a three-day run from Oct. 16 to 18.
- The Sound of Music, Rodgers & Hammerstein's classic about the singing Von Trapp family and a problematic nun named Maria. It'll be staged Nov. 20 and 21.
- Something Rotten, a 2015 musical comedy that follows the efforts of two of Shakespeare's rivals as they try to out-do him by creating the world's first musical. It'll be staged Feb. 20 and 21.
- Finding Neverland, an adaptation of the 2004 film and 1998 play The Man Who Was Peter Pan about author J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired Peter Pan. It'll be staged April 17 and 18.
Performances will be staged at 7:30 p.m. each night in the Amarillo Civic Center Complex Auditorium, 401 S. Buchanan St.
