LI'L ABNER Heads Into Final Week at Orlando REP
Orlando Repertory Theatre's (Orlando REP) Youth Academy is wrapping up their run of the Summer Stock production, Li'l Abner. Remaining performances are July 25 - 28, with both evening and matinee showtimes available. This production is is presented by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK.
A fun-filled, foot-stompin' musical taken directly from the classic comic strip, Li'l Abner is laced with gentle and knowing satire, rib-tickling gags, and a host of brash, catchy tunes. World-famous characters populate this upbeat show in a delightful mixture of hillbilly nonsense and sharp, critical humor.
A Broadway hit in 1956, the show won two Tony Awards and celebrates the denizens of Dogpatch USA and their customs, such as the not-to-be-missed Sadie Hawkins Day Race. Orlando REP's production is directed by Jennifer Adams, musical directed by Robby Stamper, choreographed by Lindsey D. Smith, and proudly presents a live orchestra for all performances. Scenic design by Joe C. Klug, lighting by Alyx Jacobs, costumes by Angelica Trombo, sound by Anthony Narciso, and props by Tara Kromer provide a full, professionally-produced production starring members of the award-winning Youth Academy.
