This event was scheduled April 28-May 14, 2023.

Take a simple melodramatic plot, such as “I can’t pay the rent,” and tell it five different ways as if it had been written by five famous composers. That’s the hilarious premise behind The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), playing Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from April 28 to May 14 at the Cambria Center for the Arts Theatre.

Through music and lyrics by Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart, the show parodies some of the greatest musicals of all time and imagines what a simple story would be like if written by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, and Kander & Ebb.

“It’s clever, entertaining, and a laugh riot,” according to director Jill Turnbow, who also serves as CCAT’s artistic director. Music direction is by Dakota Simpson and choreography is by Danya Conn Nunley.

The cast includes Greg Gorrindo, Kelly Fitzgerald, Colin Toohey, and Eliana Nunley.
