Gypsy
Saturday 8:00pm January 21, 2012
Sunday 2:30pm January 22, 2012
Music by Jule Styne
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Arthur Laurents
Based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee

Gypsy is the ultimate show-biz story of a strong-willed stage mother and her brood of young performers. Join Mama Rose, her daughters June and Louise and a cast of lovable misfits in their trip across the United States during the 1920's, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. Jule Styne's music and Stephen Sondheim's lyrics include the hummable Let Me Entertain You, Some People, If Momma Was Married, All I Need Is the Girl, Everything's Coming Up Roses, You Gotta Get A Gimmick, Together Wherever We Go and the powerhouse Rose's Turn.

Broadway star Christine Andreas will perform the legendary role of Mama Rose.  Andreas was last seen here playing Katharine in Kiss Me Kate and just concluded a celebrated Broadway run of La Cage Aux Folles.

Onstage with the Symphony Silicon Valley orchestra and chorus, Broadway luminaries along with other national and local musical theater notables, will bring you the music and story of Gypsy--In Concert!

Conductor: William Liberatore
Soloist(s): Christine Andreas, Mama Rose

Guys and Dolls
Saturday 8:00pm March 17, 2012
Sunday 2:30pm March 18, 2012
sponsored by Joan & Michael Hackworth

It all begins with a bet as songs like Adelaide's Lament, A Bushel and a Peck, I've Never Been in Love Before and Luck Be A Lady bring to life an irrepressible cast of characters in early 20th Century New York.

Nathan Detroit bets high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson that Sky cannot persuade Save-A-Soul Missionary Sister Sarah Brown to accompany him on a trip to Cuba. While the worldly Sky works his charms on a wary Sarah, Nathan is doing his best to stay outside the matrimonial clutches of his long-suffering fiancée, Miss Adelaide. Guys and Dolls is a fable about what happens to gambling men and the women who long to tame them. Set in the colorful world of New York City in the mid 20th century, the romantic and funny story is populated with gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls and showgirls, and one of the great musical scores in the history of American theatre.

Broadway star Sarah Uriarte Berry, last seen as Eliza Doolittle in our concert version of My Fair Lady, will join us to play Sister Sarah.

Onstage with the Symphony Silicon Valley orchestra and chorus,  Broadway luminaries along with other national and local musical theater notables, will bring you the music and story of Frank Loesser's Guys and Dolls--In Concert!

Music & Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
