Bonnie & Clyde – At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country.
Bonnie & Clyde is a thrilling and sexy musical with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music. This tuneful tale in its first Indianapolis production comes to Summer Stock Stage June 23-26! Thursday preview performance is at 7:30 pm. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 pm and Sunday performance is at 2:30 pm.
Shrek the Musical – Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek the Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from and a sidesplitting book. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek.
Don’t miss this family friendly musical which runs July 20-24. Wednesday preview performance is at 7:30 pm. Evening performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and matinees are Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 pm.
