California Musical Theatre announced a varied lineup of musicals for the 2014 season of Sacramento Music Circus at the Wells Fargo Pavilion, the 64th season for what has become a Northern California summer tradition.

The five-show season will include the Music Circus premiere of the beloved Disney classic “Mary Poppins,” as well as other Tony Award-winning shows including the singular sensation, “A Chorus Line,” Rodgers and Hammerstein’s lush “South Pacific,” Lerner and Loewe’s mystical “Brigadoon,” and Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein’s hilarious “La Cage Aux Folles.”

Richard Lewis, California Musical Theatre president and CEO, noted that two important changes in performance times will be implemented for the 2014 season in response to overwhelming demand from patrons. In an effort to help patrons get home a little earlier from shows that can last up to three hours, all evening performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. A Sunday 2 p.m. matinée performance has also been added for all shows.

Music Circus is produced under the leadership of artistic director Glenn Casale and executive producer Scott Klier.

Wells Fargo Pavilion box office is now taking paid reservations for new subscribers. Seat locations for current subscribers will be held until the March 7 renewal deadline.

Five-show season tickets range from $175 to $280, depending on performance time and seating location. Single-show ticket prices range from $35 to $65.

Renewals and new subscriber reservations are available at the Wells Fargo Pavilion box office, 1419 H St. in Sacramento, or by phone at 916-557-1999.

Discounts are now available for groups of 12 or more by calling the group sales department at 916-557-1198. Single-show tickets will go on sale May 10.

”From the exhilarating emotional roller coaster of ‘A Chorus Line’ through the hilarious musical comedy ‘La Cage Aux Folles,’ this is a Music Circus season that guarantees a wide range of experiences,” Lewis said. “We’re particularly excited about our Music Circus premiere of the Disney classic ‘Mary Poppins,’ a show that the whole family can enjoy. For this show we’re offering a $20 discount off tickets for children ages 4-12.”

In addition to saving up to $100 on a pair of season tickets, Music Circus season ticket holders receive a number of valuable subscriber benefits, including the ability to get the best available seating locations, the opportunity to order additional single tickets before the general public, the ability to exchange their tickets for another performance free of charge, and guaranteed renewal privileges.

Season ticket holders have the peace of mind in knowing that they have tickets in advance to popular shows that will likely sell out.

 

2014 Music Circus season

For all shows, evening performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Matinée performances are Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

“A Chorus Line” — Jun. 24-29
A multiple Tony-winning singular sensation featuring music by the brilliant Marvin Hamlisch, this emotional behind-the-scenes look at the Broadway world is a celebration of what it means to be a professional dancer, fervently pursuing the passion to perform onstage. Featuring “What I Did For Love,” “I Hope I Get It” and the show-stopping “One.”

“Mary Poppins” — Jul. 8-13
Using a little bit of discipline, a spoonful of sugar and a whole lot of magic, the quintessential nanny reacquaints the Banks family with the things that really matter in life. With songs like “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” “Step In Time,” this is a show for all ages. For this show only, there is a $20 discount off the price of tickets in the yellow, red or blue section for children 4 to 12 years old.

“South Pacific” — Jul. 22-27
This Rodgers and Hammerstein classic features some of the most beautiful music ever composed for theatre. Love transcends both the harsh realities of war and social stereotypes in this sweeping tale that won a Pulitzer Prize and 10 Tonys with songs like “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Bali Ha’i,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair.”

“Brigadoon” — Aug. 5-10
Travel to the mystical Scottish Highlands village of Brigadoon where, with true love, anything is possible, even miracles. The traditions of two worlds collide in this enchanting tale by Lerner and Loewe with a soaring score featuring “Almost Like Being In Love,” “From This Day On,” “The Heather on the Hill.”

“La Cage Aux Folles”
Aug. 19 – 24
This hilarious, bawdy musical comedy by Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein won six Tony Awards in 1984 and both subsequent productions won the Tony for Best Revival. Centered in a bustling nightclub on the French Riviera teeming with song, dance and laughter, it features “The Best of Times,” “I Am What I Am,” “Song on the Sand.”
