A celebration of dance through music and movement, LET'S DANCE reimagines Broadway's best showstoppers with a thrilling infusion of Latin, jazz, and modern music in an evening of non-stop high kicks, foot stomping, and powerhouse vocals unlike anything seen in Sonoma Valley. Featuring songs from 42nd Street, Guys and Dolls, Wicked, Company and more, this evening of re-envisioned classics will open the door of Broadway to a wide range of audiences.

LET'S DANCE is conceived by Luis Salgado (In the Heights), Matt Smart (Hamilton) and Amanda M. Stuart (Harmony). Salgado will also direct and choreograph the production with musical direction by Smart. Creative team also includes Nick Perez as Associate Music Director (Broadway by the Bay).

Relive the music that makes audiences fall in love with movies. HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD features 15 performers, backed by a full band of brass, strings, and percussion, who will bring new life to a century of movie themes that have enchanted audiences around the world. Experience the magic from the timeless classics to today's top blockbusters. From The Wizard of Oz to The Greatest Showman, from Mancini themes to the movie music of Prince, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston and Ritchie Valens, this is an evening for the whole family to enjoy.

HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD is conceived and musically directed by Susan Draus (Mamma Mia!, Transcendence's Road Trip), directed and choreographed by Alaina Mills (Beautiful).
