Music Theatre Louisville to present free shows [Theater]


Music Theatre Louisville will preview its upcoming season by presenting a couple of free shows this weekend.

Entertainment is set to take place beginning on Saturday, June 5, at 7:30 p.m. at the Riverfront Stage in New Albany. A performance will also take place on Sunday, June 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the Iroquois Amphitheater. Both shows are free and open to the public.

The performances will feature music from Music Theatre Louisville's summer season, including 1776, Nunsense, and Annie.

The production of 1776 takes place during the summer of 1776 and involves many of the nation's founding fathers trying to get the Second Continental Congress to pass the Declaration of Independence.

Meanwhile, Nunsense features sisters needing to perform a talent show in order to bury all of their dead, who became so due to an accidental poisoning.

Last but not least, Annie has the title character escaping from her orphanage and looking for her family.

These productions will take place during the summer at the Bomhard Theater in the Kentucky Center for the Arts. The production 1776 is up first beginning June 25.
