Show Palace announces 2016-17 season shows

HUDSON — As 2015 comes to a close, the Show Palace Dinner Theatre is announcing its summer 2016 through spring 2017 season of shows: seven new-to-the-area book musicals, musical revues and tributes, plus one show to be revealed later when performance rights are signed, sealed and delivered.

Each show will run from four to eight weeks.

Current season ticket holders had until Dec. 15 to renew their seats. Tickets are now on sale to the public, first-come, first-served, said Vicki Marasciullo, Show Palace owner.

Individual tickets are $49.50, plus tax. But if you buy three, four or seven different shows, the price goes down to $43.50 per show, plus tax. Purchase of three, four or seven tickets to the same show does not qualify for the discount, Marasciullo said. Gift certificates are available. Call (727) 863-7949.

The season starts June 4 and ends May 21, 2017. Shows open Saturday evenings and continue matinees and evenings according to demand and scheduling of special events or shows.

The season is:

June 4-July 3: The Andrews Brothers, a book musical about three stagehands who do songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters when the sisters themselves are no-shows. Songs include Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Slow Boat to China and many others.

July 16-Aug. 14: My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra, starring two couples doing songs made famous by Ol' Blue Eyes himself: Fly Me to the Moon; New York, New York; and many others.

Aug. 27-Oct. 2: Route 66, a musical revue of 34 "Rock 'n' Road" hits of the 20th century, starting in 1950s Chicago all the way to the California coast: King of the Road, The Little Old Lady from Pasadena, Little GTO and many others.

Oct. 15-Nov. 13: The Marvelous Wonderettes, an off-Broadway hit, with a story set first in 1958, when four girls with big dreams and bigger stiff-starched petticoats sing about love and romance and heartbreak — Stupid Cupid, Lipstick on Your Collar, Dream Lover. The second act is 10 years later, when the women reunite to talk and sing about what has happened in their lives during that decade. The show features hits from the '50s and '60s.

Nov. 26-Dec. 25: A Show Palace Christmas Spectacular, a walk down nostalgia lane — building snowmen, singing carols, swapping stories, unwrapping gifts and all.

Jan. 7-Feb. 12, 2017: Disney's Beauty and the Beast, based on the tale about a beautiful young girl who meets an arrogant young prince under the curse of an enchantress who has made his physical appearance repulsive and his manners worse. If he can learn to love, the spell will be lifted. Is Beauty the one who can do that?

Feb. 25-April 2, 2017: The name of the show can't be revealed yet because it is on national tour. But it can be said that it's based on "one of the greatest movies of the '70s," according to a Show Palace news release.

April 15-May 21, 2017: The Great American Trailer Park Musical, about all the shenanigans going on at Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Florida, thanks to the newest tenant, Pippi, rumored to be an exotic dancer on the lam and potential rival for the heart of Norbert, a tollbooth collector who happens to be married to the Dr. Phil-loving Jeannie. It's been called a "double-wide comedy."

    A new study shows that seniors have a much larger impact on the success — or failure — of a film than previously realized, even films that might seem aimed at a much younger audience.

    The time is right for summer salads gussied up with light proteins. Boiled shrimp is the perfect candidate, especially paired with orange, avocado and mint, as it is here.

  5. Drink of the week: Yalumba Y Series Viognier, South Australia 2016

    Bars & Spirits

    I've long wondered why viognier isn't a more popular wine. With its seductive floral aromas and luscious fruit flavors, it's one of my favorite whites.
