“Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…”
Gilligan’s Island: The Musical brings all the side-splitting humor and beloved characters from the classic ’60s television series into a campy, zany show that’s fun for the whole family.
Developed by original Gilligan creator Sherwood Schwartz, the musical is essentially a mega episode of the hit show. A live band compliments The Skipper, The Professor, Mr. and Mrs. Howell, Ginger, Mary Ann, and Gilligan as they attempt to re-assemble a junked rocket in the hopes of getting a message to civilization. When an extra-terrestrial set on destroying Earth shows up, what is Gilligan to do? Why save the world of course! Packed with the yuks, gags, pratfalls and coconut cream pies that made the original show a hit, Gilligan’s Island: The Musical features a score of 18 new songs (from a calypso to soft shoe tap, a minuet to a hula) by Grammy-Award Winning Wings guitarist Lawrence Juber and his wife Hope.
On Opening Night, October 20, audiences have the opportunity to win prizes with the Gilligan’s Island trivia contest. At intermission, there is a 1960’s TV theme song sing-along/contest, with accompaniment provided by the live orchestra.
There is a special Halloween performance on Tuesday, October 31 at 8:00 PM. At this show, audience members may compete for prizes by dressing as their favorite castaway for the Castaway Look-Alike Contest.
The closing performance on Saturday, November 4 is scheduled for 8:30 PM.
Performances begin: December 15, 2023
