Theatre Under the Stars

I was very lucky to receive a pair of passes to Theatre Under the Stars from Visitor's Choice. Theatre Under the Stars happens every summer at the Malkin Bowl Theatre in Stanley Park. This outdoor theatre is a great place to enjoy the summer nights! Anything Goes was on last night, a musical about the people on board the S.S. American that is sailing from New York to England. Billy Crocker has followed his love, debutant Hope Harcourt, onboard the ship to convince her to marry him instead of her finance, the wealthy Englishman, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Meanwhile, gangster Moonface Martin is trying to stay hidden, Billy is trying to avoid his boss Elisha Witney, and Billy's friend Reno is trying to find love.

It was definitely a lot of fun and the music and dance sequences were great. It was funny and entertaining and a great family outing. Remember to bring a jacket or a blanket as it get chilly after dark! Anything Goes and Bye Bye Birdie are the two musicals this summer, the two playing on alternating nights. Theatre Under the Stars wraps up August 20th so hurry if you want to catch a show this year!
