Thingamajig Theatre Company’s summer season is about to heat up and season tickets are on sale now.
Season tickets are by far the most affordable way to enjoy all of the Thingamajig shows, and include admission to the Champagne Openings of each of the three productions at no additional cost. Patrons attending the Champagne Openings receive a free “Come Again” ticket that grants free admission to a future performance, when they bring a paying friend to see the show.
Summer Season tickets can save you up to 60 percent if used to their full advantage.
Following the 2011-2012 season finale of “Doubt: a Parable” (May 18-June 3) the summer season boasts three delightful and diverse musicals.
Kander & Ebb’s “Chicago” opens the season on June 15 and runs every other week through Aug. 12, with shows Wednesday through Sunday.
“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” begins on June 22 and runs in rep with Chicago through Aug. 5.
Rounding out the summer is the regional premiere of “The Last Five Years,” opening on Sept.7 running through the 23rd.
Summer season tickets are only $60. Or you can upgrade to the Save Your Seat feature that allows you to reserve the seat of your choice for only $70. Thingamajig Theatre proudly remains the most affordable option to see professional theatre in Colorado.
Summer season tickets can be purchased online at www.pagosacenter.org, by calling 731-SHOW (7469) or by mailing a check to Thingamajig Theatre Company 2313 Eagle Drive.
“Chicago” will give them the old razzle-dazzle. Girls, guns, glitz and glamour hit the Breaks Black Box Stage at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts with the multi Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Chicago.” The sizzling tale of corruption and celebrity, inspired by the sensationalized trials of 1920’s Chicago, has John Kander music, lyrics by Fred Ebb, choreography inspired by Bob Fosse and all that Jazz!
Based on the beloved comic Peanuts, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” is an updated classic that enjoyed a successful run on Broadway. The show is a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening. Two new songs, “Beethoven Day” and “My New Philosophy,” are added to a score which includes the wonderful numbers The Baseball Game, Suppertime and Happiness. This musical is appropriate for all ages and shouldn’t be missed by children and adults alike.
“The Last Five Years” is a contemporary song-cycle musical that ingeniously chronicles the five-year life of a marriage, from meeting to breakup ... or from breakup to meeting, depending on how you look at it. Written by Jason Robert Brown (“Parade,” “Songs for a New World”), “The Last Five Years” is an intensely personal look at the relationship between a writer and an actress told from both points of view. This musical stars Thingamajig’s Tim Moore and Durango’s beloved Rachael Saul Pollack, who recently won the 100 Years of Broadway competition.
