The Marriott Theatre is proud to present Shenandoah, the poignant Tony-award winning Broadway musical. Shenandoah previews April 25, opens May 2 and runs through June 24 at Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, 10 Marriott Drive. Based on the classic Jimmy Stewart film, Shenandoah is the emotional telling of a father and his pledge to protect his family. The musical will be directed and choreographed by Jeff Award winner David H. Bell.
It's North versus South, brother against brother in Shenandoah. Widowed Charlie Andersons opposition to both the war and slavery prevents him from siding with either the Confederate or the Union in the Civil War. He isn't about to let any of his six sons take sides, but as war besets the Shenandoah Valley, Charlie is pushed to the limit as his family is dragged into the fray. Through joy, sorrow and turmoil, the Andersons realize that their family bonds are what now matter the most.
Shenandoah stars Broadway veteran actor, David Hess as Charlie Anderson; and features Abby Mueller, Brian Hissong, Jessie Mueller, Jason W. Shuffler, Galen Schloming, Matt Raftery, Christian Libonati, Richie Roesner, Cory Connor and Stephen Schellhardt.
Musical direction is by Doug Peck, Set Design is by Tom Ryan, Costume Design is by Nancy Missimi, Lighting Design is by Diane Williams, Sound Design is by Cecil Averrett and Properties Design is by Greg Issac. Patti Garwood conducts the Marriott Theatre Orchestra.
