Returning to this theater is a musical comedy based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Princess and the Pea”, a fairy tale with wit, sophistication and human feeling.

Set in the fifteenth century and carried on a wave of wonderful songs, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance introduced a new Broadway star by the name of Carol Burnett when it opened in 1959.

In 1965, it was shown on TV as a special and a new production of this delightful musical opened on Broadway in December, 1996, starring Sarah Jessica Parker.

It boasts a good score and is a show for the entire family. Memorable songs include “Shy”, “In A Little While”, “Happily Ever After”, “Sensitivity” and “Normandy”.

Music and Lyrics:Laurence O’Keefe and Neil Benjamin

Completing our season is a South Bay Premiere, a fun and upbeat musical based on the novel “Legally Blonde” by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name.

It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend, Warner, and discovers how her knowledge of law can help others.

The musical premiered in pre-Broadway tryouts in San Francisco in 2007 before moving to Broadway.

It received 7 Tony nominations and ten Drama Desk nominations. It has since toured throughout the USA, London and other countries. The score includes “Omigod You Guys”, “What You Want”, “Positive”, “Delta Nu Nu Nu”, “Find My Way” and the title song.
