Join as Judson Theatre Company presents the 1st Annual Summer Theatre Festival. Three exciting, entertaining contemporary shows receive their Sandhills area premieres in the intimate McPherson Theatre at BPAC. Take advantage of three-show festival subscriptions or single show tickets.

The first show of the festival is Gutenberg! The Musical! by Scott Brown & Anthony King (authors of Beetlejuice The Musical). The show will run July 22-31. This side-splittingly hysterical musical is performed as a backer’s audition by Bud Davenport and Doug Simon, authors of a musical about Johannes Gutenberg, which they are pitching to Broadway producers. Because the minimally-talented and starry-eyed authors don’t have a cast or an orchestra, Bud and Doug play all of the roles themselves, wearing hats with the characters’ names on them and frequently switching said hats to indicate different characters. Originally produced at Upright Citizens Brigade, this hilarious show had a successful off-Broadway run.

The second show of the festival is Buyer & Cellar by Jonathan Tolins. The show will run August 5-14. Alex More has a story to tell. A struggling actor in L.A., he takes a job working in the basement mall in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu, California home. An outrageous comedy fantasia about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the melancholy that lurks beneath narcissism. Entertainment Weekly raved, “Hilarious! Beyond brilliant. This show will go down like butta’!”

The third show of the festival is tick…tick…BOOM! Book, music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson. David Auburn, Script Consultant. The show will run August 19-28. A musical by the author of Renttick, tick..BOOM! tells the story of Jon, an aspiring composer in New York in 1990 who is worried he made the wrong career choice. The film version directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda and starring Andrew Garfield debuted in 2021 as a hit with both critics and audiences.
