COLDWATER – Tibbits Summer Theatre will take flight next summer, literally, with an exciting season highlighted by the musical “Peter Pan” which will feature the boy who won’t grow up flying across the stage.
The 2015 season will open with the Neil Simon comedy, “The Odd Couple,” and then “Peter Pan.” It will continue with another big dance musical to be announced on February 2 and the season will close with “Alone Together Again,” a comedy which takes another look at the challenges of the population known as the sandwich generation.
According to Charles Burr, Tibbits Artistic Director for Summer Theatre, “It’s another nice mix of shows. The two musicals complement each other well. ‘Peter Pan’ will certainly be a show the whole family can enjoy. The other show which we can’t announce yet will still be in the vein of the big dance musicals audiences have loved the last few years.”
Burr adds, “The opening and closing shows are both situational comedies one from the 60s and the other written in the last few years, both very relatable and both a lot of fun.” According to Burr many people know ‘The Odd Couple’ with Oscar the slob and Felix the clean freak trying to share an apartment. He says, “The closing show follows the play we did last summer about the kids moving back home. ‘Alone Together Again’ is about the couple, still hoping to become empty nesters, who now have their parents move in.”
Tibbits professional summer stock season has been entertaining local audiences and bringing people to Coldwater from across the United States and Canada since 1964.
