The Grove Theatre cordially invites you to The Music Man, opening on July 17th and running on weekends through August 2nd.

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen. The Music Man is family entertainment at its best.

The best known song is undoubtedly SEVENTY-SIX TROMBONES, sung by Harold as he portrays the vision of a boys’ Town Band full of the instruments and uniforms he persuaded their mothers and fathers to buy. Other songs include GOOD-NIGHT MY SOMEONE, GOODNIGHT LADIES, GARY, INDIANA and TILL THERE WAS YOU.

Bring your family and enjoy this wonderfully entertaining show.

Tickets are $20 and $25 with senior, student and group discounts, and can be purchased by calling (909) 920-4343, by visiting The Grove box office or on line at www.grovetheatre.com.
The Grove Theatre is located at 276 E. Ninth Street, Upland, CA 91786.

The Rialto Community Players are proud to present the first production of their 33rd season, Mel Brooks’ hilarious musical comedy, The Producers! The winner of record breaking, 12 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score, is directed by Cameron Harris with musical direction by Stephanie Santos, choreography by Jeff Hemmerling and costume design by Candy Kane.

“Opening Night” is July 11th and will run through August 2nd. Performing at The Sandra R Courtney Community Playhouse located at 150 E San Bernardino Ave, show times are 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2pm on Sunday afternoons! Tickets are only $15 for General Admission and $12 for Students and Seniors. Purchase tickets at rialtocommunityplayers.com or make reservations by calling 909-873-8514. This production is rated PG-13 for use of language, adult themes and Mel Brooks’ sense of humor!

Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers, once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit, wowing capacity crowds night after night.

The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime For Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.

With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!

Their 10th anniversary summer season continues with Romeo and Juliet, directed by Wendi Johnson.

“These violent delights have violent ends, And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume”

Arguably one of Shakespeare’s most popular romantic tragedies, Romeo and Juliet, is a play that, rightfully, belongs to youth and love, but It is also a world where violence flares a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families, disrupts the city of Verona, and causes tragic results for Romeo and Juliet. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly — and fate causes them, in despair, to commit the ultimate sacrifice for love.

Thursday, July 9th (Preview Night)
Friday, July 10th – Sunday July 12th
