The Ogunquit Playhouse is one of the first regional theatres in the U.S. to produce Kinky Boots for its stage. The story is based on the popular film of the same name and revolves around Charlie Price who has reluctantly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola. As it turns out, Lola is the one person who can help Charlie become the man that he is meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible... and discover that, when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.
Menopause the Musical broke Box Office records at the Ogunquit Playhouse back in 2006, with sold-out performances that extended its season for the first time into the fall! It is currently the longest running scripted musical in Las Vegas history, with over 5000 performances during the last 13 years. Since its first performance in Orlando, Florida, Menopause the Musical has evolved as a “grassroots” movement of women who deal with life after 40 and the challenges that result from the mental, physical, and spiritual freedom of the post-WWII baby boomer generation.
On stage for two weeks only, this joyful musical parody details the meeting of four women at a lingerie sale in Bloomingdale’s fighting over a black lace bra, with nothing in common but memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, chocolate binges, wrinkles, plastic surgery, hormones, not enough sex, too much sex, and much, much more.
The Ogunquit Playhouse season kicks off with the return of the multi-Tony Award-winning, international sensation, Jersey Boys! The hit show is back by popular demand May 15 through June 15. Then, come and meet those dancing feet! The ultimate tap-dancing, show-biz musical sensation, 42nd Street celebrates Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make magical musical theatre, on stage June 19 through July 13 and featuring Emmy Award-winner Sally Struthers. Decadent nightlife meets dangerous times at Berlin’s alluring Kit Kat Klub in Cabaret, on stage July 17 through August 10. The exotic Orient Express hurtles down the tracks… to a murder!
