Season 60 brochure“Come Up To My Place”

South Bay Musical Theatre invites you to come up to “our” place — The Saratoga Civic Theater — for our fabulous 60th anniversary season! The two-show season kicks off with The Spitfire Grill January 28 to February 18, 2023 and concludes with Singin’ In The Rain May 13 to June 3, 2023. There will be no fall show as part of Season 60 because that slot is occupied by the COVID-delayed production of Company, held over from last season.

The Spitfire GrillThe Spitfire Grill

Jan. 28 – Feb. 18, 2023
Music and book by James Valq. Lyrics and book by Fred Alley. Based on the award-winning 1996 film by Lee David Zlotoff. Winner of the Richard Rogers Production Award for new musicals.

Percy Talbott is a woman with a past looking for a fresh start. She finds herself in rural Gilead, Wisconsin, working at THE SPITFIRE GRILL, but learns that being the new kid in town can be its own form of prison. Through determination, grit, and remaining open to possibilities, Percy revitalizes the grill and, in turn, the community. Debuting Off-Broadway in 2001, The Spitfire Grill struck a powerful emotional chord with both audiences and critics. Two decades later, this heartfelt musical’s message about healing the wounds of the past, finding joy in the present, and optimism for the future still resonates. 


Singin' in the RainSingin’ In The Rain

May 13 – June 3, 2023
Book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Music by Nacio Herb Brown. Lyrics by Arthur Freed. Based on the 1952 MGM film “Singin’ In The Rain.”

The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Comden and Green from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin’ in the Rain.  The splash hit captures the waning days of the silent screen era as they give way to new-fangled talkies. The uplifting score includes a downpour of the Golden Era’s most beloved comedy routines and songs, including “Good Morning,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” “Moses Supposes,” and the iconic title song, “Singin’ in the Rain.” It’s a musical that will lift your heart and set your toes tapping – in any weather.
