Dear Friends of TheatreZone,

Welcome to TheatreZone's 18th season of musical theatre and concerts. Our 2022-23 lineup inspired the theme “Romantics & Rockers,” and features shows that originate from luminaries such as Stephen Sondheim, Jimmy Buffet, Marvin Hamlisch, and iconic eighties rock bands.

The season debuts with our traditional season opener, Home for the Holidays. The main stage productions that follow celebrate beloved ballads, folk songs and rock-n-roll classics.

TheatreZone intends to get you on your feet and sing along as the beat continues with four concerts with homages to memorable hit-makers such as James Taylor, Billy Joel and Elton John. 

To all the romantics and rockers in Southwest Florida... 

Rock on!

A Little Night Music, Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 Broadway musical, is a romantic farce about the lives of several upper-middle-class couples set in early 20th century Sweden. It was suggested by Ingmar Bergman’s Smiles of a Summer Night, an evening of sexual musical chairs on the longest night of the year. The couples, mostly mismatched at the start, end up with more desirable partners by the final curtain. Sondheim’s score features his best-known song, “Send in the Clowns.” A Little Night Music won a 1973 Tony Award for best musical.

Escape to Margaritaville and step into “island time” in this hilarious, heartwarming musical featuring classic Jimmy Buffet hits. Based on a true story, the musical was written by Emmy award winner Greg Garcia and Emmy nominee Mike O’Malley and made its debut in 2018. Set in the rundown Margarita hotel on a small Caribbean island, visiting girlfriends mingle with the hotel’s resident colorful characters and become romantically involved. The show follows the characters over a three-year time span following the sudden closure of the hotel due to a natural disaster. The group reunites at the reopened hotel for a sweet and satisfying finale. Jimmy Buffet songs include “Come Monday,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Margaritaville,” which was inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame for its cultural and historic significance.

The Goodbye Girl is Neil Simon’s 1993 Broadway adaptation of his Academy Award-nominated 1977 film. The Broadway production starred Martin Short and Bernadette Peters and received Tony Award nominations for best musical, best actress in a musical and best actor in a musical. The plot centers on a struggling actor who has sublet a Manhattan apartment from a friend and the current occupants -- his friend's ex-girlfriend and her precocious young daughter. The famed comedy is an adventure about love and commitment, with music scored by Marvin Hamlisch and with lyrics by David Zippel. It is also known for coining the phrase “The Goodbye Girl Syndrome” which describes a woman abandoned by a boyfriend. But in The Goodbye Girl, true love blossoms and the story ends happily when the curtain falls.

Eighties classic rock is a virtual character in Rock of Ages, which has a timeless plot featuring star-crossed lovers and their youthful dramas.

It features hits by the most famous glam metal bands of the 80s including Whitesnake, Journey, Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon, Jefferson Starship, and many more. Set in Los Angeles, aspiring rockers and actresses couple up and break up as they compete and begin to succeed. They unite in their protest of the destruction of the Sunset Strip by developers who want to clean up the Strip’s “sex, drugs and rock-n-roll” lifestyle. As the characters mature in the process, the musical ends on a high note with audiences cheering for them.
