Xanadu in Broadway XANADU
The Hobby Center
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 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.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in Broadway HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING
Beaumont Community Players
A hilarious satire of big business in the sixties and all it held sacred, this musical follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder, skipping gaily from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, while avoiding the familiar dangers of the day: the "company man," backstabbing coworkers, the office party, and even caffeine addiction, only to be tripped up by of all things, true love.
