It’s a hard knock life: Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater announces 2018 lineup
January 18, 2018
The Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre announced the lineup for the 2018 season last week, starting with a rendition of the 1970s classic, "Annie," on June 8.
The musical follows the events of the charming orphan Annie in 1930s New York, and features worldwide hits such as "Tomorrow" and "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile."
Next, the theater will bring 2014 Broadway comedy hit "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" to audiences on June 15. The show follows Monty Navarro, a lowly born man who discovers that he's eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family. His plan? To knock off everyone in his way, and become the second Earl of Highhurst.
On June 29 the theater will debut "The Full Monty," an upbeat comedy based on the 1997 cult film of the same name. The narrative tracks a group of unemployed men from Buffalo who are emasculated upon discovering their wives' admiration for male strippers. They ban together to create their own striptease act, with hopes of making some quick cash.
Finally, the theater will bring "Pump Boys and Dinettes" to audiences on Aug. 31. The "Pump Boys" sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country, next door to the Double Cupp diner occupied by "Dinettes." Together the two groups decide to put on an evening of country western songs.
