Broadway comes to the Emerald Coast

“I’m looking forward to ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ and ‘Broadway Rox' should be good.”

Shires also said many of the shows were brought to the theater because of popular demand.

“We have been getting feedback from patrons for several years requesting ‘Menopause the Musical’,” she said. “We get a lot of snowbirds who love Broadway and want to see classics like ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ or a concert with traditional Irish music like ‘Women of Ireland’.”

Also featured in this season’s lineup is “DRUMLINE Live,” a contemporary musical that has high energy marching band performances. Shires said the center decided to bring back a show that was a bigger production than last season’s youth favorite and box office hit, “Blast!”.

Shires said audiences can look forward to an authentic Broadway experience.

“I hope that audiences will get a taste of Broadway,” she said. “Our goal was to bring a piece of the Big Apple to Niceville.”
