Coming to the Hale 2017

The next two weeks on the Liv Avenida Blog will be all about the theater. This week we are heading out of Chandler to explore the Hale Center Theater. 2017 is a little ways away, but tickets at the Hale Center Theater in Gilbert are already selling out. In this post, we will feature four of the plays coming to the Hale next year. Make sure to grab your ticket before they sell out!


The Marvelous Wonderettes

January 17, 2016-April 18, 2016

From the website: “This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!”


Thoroughly Modern Millie

February 16, 2016-April 1, 2017

From the website: “Winner of 6 Tonys! Broadway audiences went bonkers over this show-stopping, toe-tapping musical! Inspired by the beloved movie, this 1920’s romance of a young woman who takes a job with a large company as a ruse to marry the boss’s son, zings with flashy music, fabulous dancing and flirty fun!”


No Time for Sergeants

April 6, 2017-May 13, 2017

From the website: “The funniest comedy ever written about our armed services. The story begins when young naive hillbilly, Will Stockdale, is drafted into the U.S. Air force. Will is quick to make friends and enemies with his gullible hillbilly charm. You’ll roar with laughter and cheer this country bumpkin on as he turns the air force upside down in hopes of serving in that most glorious and revered branch of the army - the infantry. Come and join our hapless hero for an evening of hilarious, yet heartwarming entertainment!”



May 18, 2017-July 1, 2017

From the website: “Winner of four 2000 Tony Awards, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier they both love. With an unforgettable score featuring soaring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Aida is a modern crowd-pleaser that embraces multicultural casting and exuberant dancing, staging, and singing.”
