March 28 – April 28, 2019

Many of the most beloved, uplifting, and romantic songs in musical theatre history have one thing in common: The incomparable writing team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. A Grand Night For Singing collects over 30 treasured works from Rodgers and Hammerstein hits such as Oklahoma!, South Pacific, The Sound of Music, Carousel, The King and I, and Cinderella; as well as lesser-known shows like Allegro, Flower Drum Song, and Pipe Dream. Audiences are invited to experience these classics anew through artful arrangements and clever interpretations – it’s “something wonderful” for any lover of classic musical theatre!

Originally produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, New York City, in 1993.

Performances held at the Broadway Rose New Stage, 12850 SW Grant Avenue, Tigard, OR

Director's Note


In reading about Rodgers and Hammerstein in the book Something Wonderful: Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway Revolution by Todd S. Purdum, I was struck by the persistence that led to their now undeniable success: “As failure piled on top of failure Oscar Hammerstein grew more depressed but did not lose his sense of humor. In 1938 he wrote an old friend, ‘Forgive me for not writing sooner. I have been so busy producing flops that I haven’t had time for anything else.’” Hammerstein had hit a dry patch that would last for eleven years. Ouch.

When Richard Rodgers suggested collaborating with Hammerstein on a musical based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Riggs (resulting in Oklahoma!), the new partnership was sealed with a handshake and neither man’s life would ever be the same. The result was musical theatre magic, with shows like The Sound of Music, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, Flower Drum Song, and State Fair.

This revue is a celebration of their work, and I chose to make the production simple and elegant to keep the focus where it should be, on the music. These singers are exceptional, and the song list is everything that attracted me to musical theatre in the first place: songs that are funny, tragic, and moving.

I’m writing these notes just one week into rehearsals, and last night as I was watching the cast, I found myself getting lost in the beauty of the show. When that happens, I know that we’ve got something special.

Enjoy the show.
