The REP Presents Summer Fun For The Entire Family
Orlando Repertory Theatre presents The REP’s Summer Celebration Series for Central Florida families. With three exciting shows between July 18 and August 3, the productions are Crazy For You, The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful (and Her Dog!), and Leslie and Lolly Make Stuff Up! Join us on the weekend of July 26 – 27, 2014, when all three shows are playing along with activities and fun.
The REP Youth Academy performs Crazy For You on July 18 – August 3, 2014. This Gershwin hit is filled with foot-tapping musical and dance numbers, along with a hilarious story. Carefree New Yorker Bobby meets spunky Polly in Deadrock, Nevada, where they quickly fall in love. Populated with Follies girls, cowboys, socialites, and plain folk, this Tony-Award winning musical is packed with classic Gershwin tunes including “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “Embraceable You,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” and “I Got Rhythm.” Things are looking up! Crazy For You features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Ken Ludwig.
After a statewide tour of Florida, The REP is happy to bring back by popular demand, The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful (and Her Dog!) with book and lyrics by Lauren Gunderson and music by Brian Lowdermilk, is presented on July 23 – August 1, 2014 and is a co-production with Miami’s City Theatre. Fly through the solar system with Dr. Wonderful and her amazing adventure team of Newton (the dog) and Ben (the human) in this musical as Dr. Wonderful and her team receive an important call causing them to leap into action from their laboratory/bedroom into outer space. Saving a superstar from disappearing is no small task; especially when the star is 1.3 million times the size of Earth and 93 million miles away. With a couple of butterscotch candies and a rock song from Mom in the mix, the mystery solvers are amazed by their final discovery.
The REP is thrilled to present Leslie and Lolly Make Stuff Up! featuring Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, a 2014 Daytime Emmy Nominee for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series for her work on Sesame Street, where she is best known as Abby Cadabby. Join Leslie and her sock puppet sidekick, Lolly Lardpop, for a show full of music, joy, and laughter on July 26 – 27, 2014. This show is also a homecoming for Leslie, as she has appeared in many shows throughout the years here, beginning in the 90s.
