The second season of Lewisville Summer Musicals will bring eight popular musical plays to the Performance Hall of the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, with performance dates starting in March and running through August. The shows will be presented by Texas Family Musicals, which debuted the summer series in Lewisville last year.
“British Invasion” will take the stage on two weekends, Aug. 10-11 and 17-18. This clever recreation of the Beatles’ fabled first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show includes all the original acts from that February 1964 broadcast, complete with live commercials.
The series finale will be “Rocky Mountain High” on Aug. 24-25, featuring stories and music remembering beloved singer John Denver. The stage will be filled with fabulous dance numbers and multimedia backgrounds to place the audience in the natural world Denver celebrated through his music.
All show times are 7:30 p.m. on Friday, 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. Ticket prices for individual shows are $26, $28 or $30, depending on the seating. Discounts are available for seniors, or for groups of 12 or more. Season ticket packages are further discounted and can be purchased for five, six, seven or eight shows.
All ticket sales will be through Texas Family Musicals at its website, www.Texasfamilymusicals.com. For information, call 800.547.4697.
