Based in Seattle, SHOWTUNES Theatre Company gathers the top professinoals of Seattle to create concert versions of rarely staged musicals. Showtunes is dedicated to the appreciation, preservation and advancement of musical theater.
Our 2016-17 Season marks the 17th year of SHOWTUNES in Seattle, and the company has embarked on an ambitious new season with three musicals in concert and a cabaret. Our cabaret, Defying Expectations, is the second production at ACT in our inaugural year as part of ACTLab. In October 2016, ACT audiences embraced our production of the Broadway classic Shenandoah in The Allen Theatre, featuring Anne Allgood reinterpreting a classic role in an all-acoustic presentation of the show. In December 2016, SHOWTUNES produced the Northwest premiere of the Broadway musical Leap of Faith at Benaroya Hall.
Our final production of the season will return us to Benaroya Hall with The Unsinkable Molly Brown (Mar 11-12, 2017). Molly Brown is a rarely produced musical by Meredith Wilson, creator of The Music Man, and it will feature six of Seattle's finest music tehatre actresses offering their own unique interpretations of the role.
SHOWTUNES is excited to continue to diversify our offerings through the support of ACTLab while demonstrating our unparalleled devotion to an all-American art form. We do what we do “For the Love of Musicals!” To learn more, visit our website.
