DMTC unveils 2011-12 season

Six beloved musicals, ranging from tried-and-true favorites to relative newcomer, comprise the 2011-12 Davis Musical Theatre Company season, unveiled recently.

The slate begins with Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic, “The King and I,” onstage from Sept. 9 through Oct. 2. The show, set in 1862 in Siam, tells the story of an English widow and her young son as they arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the king to serve as a tutor to his many children and wives.

The show features such standards as “Hello, Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance?” and “Getting to Know You.”

Next up is “Bye, Bye, Birdie,” Broadway’s first rock-and-roll musical, on stage Nov. 4-27. A satire done with the fondest affection, this is the story of a rock-and-roll singer who is about to be inducted into the U.S. Army, and his throngs of devastated teenage fans.

Songs include “Put on a Happy Face,” “One Boy” and “A Lot of Livin’ to Do.”

The new year ushers in the Kander and Ebb hit “Chicago,” onstage Jan. 6-29. In the roaring ’20s, Roxie Hart and fellow “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the American dream: fame, fortune and acquittal.

The score includes “When You’re Good to Mama,” “Mister Cellophane” and “All That Jazz.”

Early spring means baseball, and that’s what DMTC brings to the stage with “Damn Yankees,” Feb. 24-March 18. Faust meets professional baseball in this Broadway classic, as middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees.

Memorable tunes include “Whatever Lola Wants,” “Heart” and “Those Were the Good Old Days.”

Next up is “Titanic: The Musical,” produced on the 100th anniversary of the quintessential tragedy — the sinking of the “unsinkable” ship Titanic. This is the factual story of that voyage — of the officers, crew and passengers — whose fates were sealed on that tragic night in April 1912.

“Titanic” is the winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It will be presented by DMTC April 13-May 6.

The season closes with the big fat musical comedy hit “Hairspray,” June 22-July 15. Welcome to the ’60s! A lovable plus-size heroine, Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on a local television dance program. Overnight, she finds herself transformed from shunned outsider to teen celebrity, and she “can’t stop the beat.”

“Hairspray” won eight Tony Awards and ran for more than six years on Broadway.

Season’s tickets are on sale now, for $90 general or $80 for seniors, students and children. For more information or to order, call DMTC at (530) 756-3682 or visit http://www.dmtc.org/season2011-12.html.
