TUTS‘ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) is excited to announce the Houston premiere of Xanadu as the 2013 Summer Conservatory production. The comical, roller skating musical based on the Universal Pictures film which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, is about following your dreams despite the limitation others set for you.
Xanadu rolls onto the Zilkha Hall stage at The Hobby Center for Performing Arts, September 13 – 14, 2013.
Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. Rolling along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, Xanadu’s catchy score includes, “Magic”, “All Over The World”, “Suddenly”, “I’m Alive”, “Evil Woman, and “Xanadu”, to name a few.
The TUTS production of Xanadu is made possible by the generosity of The Cullen Trust for the Performing Arts, The Humphreys Foundation and the Immanuel & Helen B. Olshan Foundation.
