Summer Lovin': An Original Music Revue

Welcome back to summer, and welcome back to live theatre!

The Summer Place is returning to the stage after a year-long hiatus, and we have a whole season of great outdoor performances lined up to celebrate. We are kicking off our season with Summer Lovin’, an original musical revue chock-full of summertime Broadway favorites, performed by a talented cast of Chicago-area singers.  The audience will lounge on picnic blankets or sit in their lawn chairs as we serenade you with classics like “Too Darn Hot” (Kiss Me, Kate) and “Sunday” (Sunday in the Park with George). Kick off your shoes and dance in the grass to “Another Day of Sun” (La La Land) and “The Schuyler Sisters” (Hamilton). And sing along to hits like “In Summer” (Frozen) and, of course, the karaoke classic “Summer Nights” (Grease). 

Summer Lovin’ was conceived by Co-Directors Emma Gingold and Jeff Sand, and Music Director Rex Meyer. If those names sound familiar, it’s because this same team produced Summer Place Theatre’s 2020 spring fundraiser, where the cast delighted audiences with “backwards” versions of hit Broadway songs. Summer Lovin’s 21-person cast and live band are thrilled to get the chance to perform live outdoors at the Wagner Pavilion in Naperville on June 18, 19, and 20 at 7:00 p.m.  American Sign Language interpreted on Sunday, June 20.
