Following Santa Barbara High School Theatre’s fall production of Young Frankenstein, SBHS brings another cinematic comedy to the stage! Loaded with big laughs, colorful characters and the songs that made the '20s roar, Bullets Over Broadway The Musical is coming to Santa Barbara High School Theatre this spring! Based on the screenplay of the acclaimed 1994 film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, this six-time Tony-nominated musical features existing hits from the 1920s, including "Let's Misbehave," "'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do" and "There's a New Day Comin’!” After the original broadway production of Bullets Over Broadway closed August of 2015, Santa Barbara High School is the first high school in the US to acquire the rights to this new and energetic musical comedy.
Bullets Over Broadway revolves around David Shayne, a straight-arrow playwright who plans to stand firm against compromising his work but quickly abandons that stance when his producer finds a backer to mount his show on Broadway. There's just one catch, however: the backer is a mobster who sees Shayne's play as a vehicle for his ditzy, talent-free girlfriend. Throw in an aging diva, a savant hit-man and a bevy of beautiful chorus girls, and this is one Broadway show that is sure to knock 'em dead. Bullets Over Broadway is a love letter to the Golden Age of Broadway, filled with unforgettable songs that audiences remember and love.
Auditions will be held in early February. Stay tuned for more audition information. Bullets Over Broadway opens in April at Santa Barbara High School Theatre!
