With music by ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (Mamma Mia) and lyrics by Tim Rice (Evita), this musical drama involves a romantic triangle between two top players -- an American and a Russian -- and the woman who manages one and falls in love with the other. Loosely based on the lives of chess grandmasters Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov, the rock opera plays out against the Cold War struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union, with each wanting to win international tournaments for purposes of propaganda. It's an intriguing tale of romantic rivalries, cunning gamesmanship and political tensions. Time Magazine says that Chess has "one of the best rock scores ever produced." Learn More

Cheerio, pardner! Crikey! It’s 1944 and America’s favorite singing cowboys are saddled up to take the British airwaves by storm. There’s just one problem: the crooners are no-shows. What’s the BBC to do? Pull on your boots, loosen your tie, and get ready for a summer musical that’ll rope you in and leave you in stitches.
Associate Artistic Director Karen Lund directs Bill Hamer, Ian Lindsay, Caitlin Macy-Beckwith, Simon Pringle, Solomon Davis, and Sam Vance.
Enjoyable for ages 5 and older.
The show runs two hours, with one intermission.
