The 2012 Musical Season
2012 Musical Season starts with the classic musical comedy, "Hello,
Dolly!" from June 12 – 24. Directed
by Charles Repole and choreographed by Michael
Lichtefeld, the musical tells the story of matchmaker Dolly Gallagher
Levi (to be played by Broadway veteran and Lynnfield native Jacqueline
Piro Donovan, replacing the previously announced Lorna
Luft who's had to pull out due to a back injury), hired to arrange
a marriage for the miserly Yonkers half-a-millionaire, Horace Vandergelder
(Tony Award-Winner Gary Beach). With
a book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by legendary
composer Jerry Herman, "Hello, Dolly!" is filled
with timeless showtunes ranging from "Put On Your Sunday
Clothes" to "It Only Takes A Moment,"
"Before The Parade Passes By" and the iconic title
The fall begins with Dolly Parton's "9 To 5: The Musical," playing from September 25 – October 7. Based on the hit 1980 movie of the same name, the production features Dolly Parton’s original hit title song along with her all-new Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score. As longtime fans know, "9 To 5" tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do -- even in a man's world. Written by Patricia Resnick, co-writer of the original screenplay, this story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is will be directed and choreographed by Richard Stafford and star NSMT audience favorite George Dvorsky as Mr. Hart, the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot who terrorizes all who cross his duplicitous path.
The 2012 Musical Subscription series will end with "Guys & Dolls" from October 30 – November 11. Directed by Mark Martino and choreographed by Michael Lichtefeld, "Guys & Dolls" revolves around an array of colorful Damon Runyon characters including: slick, high-rolling Sky Masterson; the upright but uptight "mission doll," Sarah Brown; Miss Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer; and not-so-slick chronic gambler, Nathan Detroit. Featuring a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, "Guys & Dolls" soars with the spirit of Broadway.
Following the 5 show subscription series, NSMT will complete the year with the theater's time honored production of "A Christmas Carol," running from December 7 - December 23 and starring Massachusetts’ longest consecutively running Scrooge, David Coffee.
