Singing in the summertime

The Villages’ Studio Theatre Tierra Del Sol is busy this summer. “Songs for a New World,” by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, has a limited engagement of nine performances from Aug. 13-29. The song cycle examines the challenges, rewards, and knowledge people obtain and endure when pursuing their dreams in a new world of possibility. The cast includes Whitney Morse, Fernando Varela, Allyssa Yost, and Josh Kimball.

“Forever Plaid, A Pitch-Perfect Jukebox Musical,” is scheduled from Aug. 2-Sept. 2 at the 99-seat black box theater, 806 San Marino Drive. The musical comedy, written by Stuart Ross, tells the tale of the Plaids, a quartet of crooners who return from the afterlife to perform a show of 1950s pop hits. The show stars singer Clark Barrios and a live band. Purchase tickets at thesharonstudio.com and Villages box offices, or by calling 352.751.7799.
