The Best of Broadway right here in Sacramento!
Every summer, Music Circus locally produces Broadway musicals, hiring talent from Broadway, L.A., and right here in Sacramento. Five or more shows each summer run for about a week each and are performed in a state-of-the-art, air-conditioned pavilion. No one is more than 60 feet from the stage which is located in the center. Yes, theatre in the round! Action takes place on stage and in the aisles. If you've never seen a Music Circus show, you're missing out on a Sacramento tradition of almost 70 years!
During winter, California Musical Theatre (CMT) plays host to national touring productions of popular musicals. The venue is the Community Center Theatre, which features a traditional proscenium.
What makes California Musical Theatre the Best of Sacramento isn't the shows, however. I grew up in L.A. If you're looking for educational and professional opportunities for actors and those who want to work in theatre, don't look down south! CMT has what you're looking for right here! From summer internships at Music Circus to workshops and master classes, CMT has something for everyone who wants to go behind the curtain.
Best of all, CMT is a non-profit organization. Ticket prices for shows are reasonable. CMT does a variety of things to provide disadvantaged folk the opportunity to experience the magic of live theatre.
Don't just go see a show! Support CMT to ensure the arts have a great future here in Sacramento!
