Music Circus

Tickets to All Five Tony-Winning Hit Musicals Available Beginning at 10 a.m., Starting at Just $35
Beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 10, Music Circus patrons can purchase tickets to any of the five Tony Award®-winning shows in the 2014 season at the Wells Fargo Pavilion. Season tickets will continue to be available, offering a discount for purchasing all five shows, along with other subscriber benefits.

The 64th season for this Northern California summer tradition, produced by California Musical Theatre, will include the Music Circus premiere of the beloved Disney classic Mary Poppins, as well as other Tony Award-winning shows including the singular sensation A Chorus Line, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s lush South Pacific, Lerner and Loewe’s mystical Brigadoon, and Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein’s hilarious La Cage Aux Folles.

Two important changes in performance times will be implemented for the 2014 season in response to overwhelming demand from patrons: To help patrons get home a little earlier from shows that can last up to three hours, all evening performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. (In previous seasons, evening performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday began at 8:00 p.m.) A Sunday 2:00 p.m. matinee performance has also been added for all shows.

”From the exhilarating emotional roller coaster of A Chorus Line through the hilarious musical comedy La Cage Aux Folles, this is a Music Circus season that guarantees a wide range of experiences,” said California Musical Theatre President & CEO Richard Lewis. “We’re particularly excited about our Music Circus premiere of the Disney classic Mary Poppins, a show that patrons of all ages are sure to enjoy. For this show we’re offering a $20 discount off tickets for children ages 4 – 12.”

Music Circus is produced under the leadership of Artistic Director Glenn Casale and Executive Producer Scott Klier.

Tickets range from $35 – $65 and are available by phone at (916) 557-1999, online at Tickets.com, or in person at the Wells Fargo Pavilion Box Office, 1419 H Street in Sacramento. Evening performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Matinee performances are Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Season tickets are also available at the Wells Fargo Pavilion Box Office or by calling (916) 557-1995. Discounts are available for groups of 12 or more by calling the Group Sales department at (916) 557-1198. For more information visit SacramentoMusicCircus.com.

A Chorus Line
Jun. 24 – 29
A multiple Tony-winning singular sensation! Featuring music by the brilliant Marvin Hamlisch, this emotional behind-the-scenes look at the Broadway world is a celebration of what it means to be a professional dancer, fervently pursuing the passion to perform onstage. Featuring “What I Did For Love,” “I Hope I Get It,” and the show-stopping “One.”

Mary Poppins

Using a little bit of discipline, a spoonful of sugar and a whole lot of magic, the quintessential nanny reacquaints the Banks family with the things that really matter in life. Like The Little Mermaid at Music Circus in 2012, this Disney classic is fun for all ages. With “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” “Step In Time.” For this show only, there is a $20 discount off the price of tickets in the Yellow, Red or Blue section for children 4 – 12 years old.

South Pacific
Jul. 22 – 27
This Rodgers and Hammerstein classic features some of the most beautiful music ever composed for theatre. Love transcends both the harsh realities of war and social stereotypes in this sweeping tale that won a Pulitzer Prize and 10 Tonys. With “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Bali Ha’i,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair.”

Brigadoon
Aug. 5 – 10
Travel to the mystical Scottish Highlands village of Brigadoon where, with true love, anything is possible, even miracles. The traditions of two worlds collide in this enchanting tale by Lerner and Loewe (Camelot, My Fair Lady), with a soaring score featuring “Almost Like Being In Love,” “From This Day On,” “The Heather on the Hill.”

La Cage Aux Folles
Aug. 19 – 24
This hilarious, bawdy musical comedy by Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein won six Tony Awards in 1984, and both subsequent productions won the Tony for Best Revival. Centered in a bustling nightclub on the French Riviera teeming with song, dance and laughter, it features “The Best of Times,” “I Am What I Am,” “Song on the Sand.”
