TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: South Bay Musical Theatre Announces 2020-2021 Season

Mar 20, 2020
The South Bay Musical Theatre has announced the titles for the company’s upcoming 2020-2021 season, which will include “JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT” (September 26 - October 17, 2020), “A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC” (January 30 - February 20, 2021) and “THE KING AND I” (May 15 - June 5, 2021).

"The theme of our 2020-2021 season is The Titans of Broadway," says SBMT Executive Director Sara K. Dean, "as we are offering a trifecta of musicals by celebrated composers Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, and the team of Rodgers and Hammerstein. These highly acclaimed shows include some of Broadway's most beloved songs, while offering a diversity of stories, styles, and settings. “JOSEPH,” for example, has an uplifting and sparkling energy; “A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC” is subtle and sophisticated; while “THE KING AND I” is traditional and entrancing. At South Bay Musical Theatre, we strive to provide noteworthy entertainment while building community. We believe that our patrons are going to be thrilled with these productions."

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Since 1972, “JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT” has had four major productions in London’s West End theater district and two on Broadway in New York City – in addition to numerous national touring productions in the United Kingdom, the United States and in international locales. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s film “Smiles of a Summer Night,” the elegant musical “A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC” whisks theatergoers away to Sweden in the year 1900. The story explores a tangled web of affairs amongst the fading diva Desirée Armfeldt, the men who love her, their jealous wives, and everyone who finds themselves alongside them for a weekend in the country. The enticing sparkle of new romances and second chances brings endless surprises throughout this sophisticated work that features the famed song “Send in the Clowns” and a masterful score of enchanting Sondheim waltzes.

Two worlds collide in “THE KING AND I,” a breathtaking and exquisite true story about a schoolteacher named Anna and her stormy-turned-steamy relationship with the King of Siam. The show has seen multiple Broadway runs, winning the Tony® Award for “Best Musical” or “Best Revival” in 1951, 1996, and 2015. The story, so daring in its day 70 years ago, tackled slavery, tyranny, sexism, racism, humility, cultural differences, political upheaval, and even girl power — themes that are still all too relevant today. The score features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” and “Shall We Dance.”
