No No Nanette

No, No, Nanette: Sep. 28 – Oct. 19, 2024

No, No, Nanette is a lighthearted romp showcasing the charming music of Vincent Youmans. Even though it was written and first performed 100 years ago, it brought us a couple of songs about happiness that remain popular today. The wacky story involves three couples sharing a cottage in Atlantic City in the midst of a blackmail scheme, with plenty of deception, romantic mishaps, and comical misunderstandings. The score includes two of the best-known songs in musical theatre – “Tea for Two” and “I Want to Be Happy” – as well as “I’ve Confessed To The Breeze,” “You Can Dance With Any Girl” and “Take a Little One-Step.”

Fun fact: Johnny Carson had a running gag on The Tonight Show that owes a huge debt to No, No, Nanette: Whenever one of Johnny’s jokes would bomb, the band would play “Tea For Two” as Johnny dutifully broke into a tap dance to fill the awkward silence.


Urinetown, the Musical: Jan. 25 – Feb. 15, 2025

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, environmental collapse, privatization of natural resources, bureaucracy, municipal politics, and musical theatre itself! (In fact, it pokes fun at its own controversial title.) Hilariously funny, touchingly honest, and just as relevant today as when it was created 20 years ago, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

Brigadoon musical

Brigadoon: May 17 – June 7, 2025

Lerner and Loewe’s Brigadoon is the enchanting and beloved Broadway and West End musical that inspired the classic MGM film, and numerous productions all over the world. Featuring such standards as “Almost Like Being in Love,” “Come to Me, Bend To Me,” and “Heather on the Hill,” Brigadoon is a timeless, romantic classic that vividly brings the mystery and magic of the Scottish highlands to life.

Synopsis: New Yorker Tommy Albright unexpectedly arrives at the mysterious Scottish Highland village of Brigadoon, which only appears for one day every 100 years. When Tommy meets and falls in love with Fiona, a beautiful villager in this magical hamlet, he must decide whether to return to his old life, or stay in Brigadoon — forever.

Great news! Brad Handshy will be back in 2025 with another long-awaited installment in his popular “Broadway By The Decade” series of cabaret concerts.

Titanic in ConcertTitanic the Musical – in Concert: Apr. 12 – 13, 2025

Epic and majestic, with moments of heartbreaking intimacy, Titanic captures the triumph and tragedy of the hopeful passengers on the ill-fated Ship of Dreams. Because of its extremely challenging technical requirements, this is a show that rarely (if ever) is mounted by community theatres. However, it has a soaring, gorgeous musical score that deserves to be heard. SBMT will mount the show in concert format with a massive orchestra and chorus for two nights only as a spring fundraiser event that is not to be missed.
