Theatre-goers and music lovers staying at The Grand Hotel Bridgeport may be interested to know about the The Broadway Rose Theatre Company. The theatre, located just minutes from our hotel, is the only professional musical theater company in Washington County. The theatre combines nationally and locally recognized professionals with high quality production values to bring performances that rival national Broadway tours. A local favorite, The Broadway Rose Theatre was selected as the 2009 “Business of the Year” by the Tigard Chamber of Commerce.
The next production, Winter Wonderettes, The New ’60s Christmas Musical Created by Roger Bean, opens November 19 and will run through December 20. Gal-pal singing group The Marvelous Wonderettes have been invited to perform at the 1968 holiday party for Harpers Hardware Store. Beauty queen Cindy Lou, wise-crackin’ gum chewin’ Suzy, shy gal Missy, and scrappy Betty Jean create a rockin’ lively mix of 50s and 60s holiday hits and standards. But when Santa turns up missing, the girls must use their talent and creative ingenuity, with the support of some great familiar and not-so-familiar holiday gems, to rectify their holiday party without the jolly big guy in red. The result is a marvelous show that will have you dancing in the aisles and celebrating in Winter Wonderettes style.
