There is No Place Like Richter!
Set Sail for a Rainbow Summer!

2014 Season
Anything Goes The Wizard of Oz - The Musical
We start our summer journey aboard the S.S. American in the Cole Porter classic Anything Goes! Set on the deck of a Trans-Atlantic cruise ship, this show combines madcap antics, a romantic love story, and a hilarious cast of characters. Anything Goes is a shining example of classic musical theater, complete with amazing tap numbers, campy jokes, unlikely happy endings and eminently hummable songs like "De-Lovely," "I Get a Kick Out Of You" and "Anything Goes." Anything Goes! will run from June 27th through July 12th! "There is no place like Richter" and Dorothy will agree! Come celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the MGM Classic, The Wizard of Oz running July 25th through August 9th. Travel down the yellow brick road with Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion as they search for the Wizard and the glowing Emerald City. Adapted from the famous movie starring Judy Garland, the stage version incorporates all of your favorite songs like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," "If I Only Had a Brain," and "King of Forest" with the rare dance number "The Jitterbug" which was cut from the original movie.
