The Titanic may have sunk in 1912, but Molly Brown’s heroism secured her name in history and legend. At Performance Riverside, her legend lives on in The Unsinkable Molly Brown, opening November 13. This spirited tale of a real-life American original follows the exploits of Molly Brown, whose feisty determination to move beyond her impoverished beginnings leads her from the backwoods of Hannibal, Missouri, to the palaces of Europe. With music and lyrics by Meredith Willson, creator of the Broadway classic, The Music Man, and a book by Richard Henry Morris, author of Thoroughly Modern Millie, Molly Brown still reigns supreme in the court of Broadway’s royalty. The production is directed and choreographed by Roger Castellano, musically directed by Scott T. Smith and produced by Rey O’Day.
The real Margaret Tobin Brown is often portrayed as a backward social outcast who struggled for recognition,” says O’Day, “but she was years ahead of her time. She used her wealth and position to work for social, political and labor reform. She was a constant advocate for people who didn't have a voice.” Brown ran for the Senate twice, was a leader in Women’s suffrage, and was awarded the French Legion of Honor for her work in World War I. On April 15, 1912, she was a first-class passenger on RMS Titanic when it sank. Characteristically, she helped many others to lifeboats before she finally left the ship in Lifeboat No. 6. Brown earned her title of “Unsinkable Molly Brown” when she and several other women passengers took control of the boat, rowing back to look for survivors, against the demands and protests of the head crewman. This incident is vividly depicted in James Cameron’s 1997 film, Titanic, with Oscar winning actress Kathy Bates portraying Margaret Brown.
Stacey Huntington returns to Performance Riverside to play one of her dream roles. Twenty years ago, Stacey was a 14 year old Centennial High School student when she first stepped foot on the Landis stage in the chorus of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. One of Performance Riverside’s success stories, she’s appeared at Landis as Miss Flannery in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Marty in Grease, Sister Mary Leo in Nunsense, Minnie Fay in Hello Dolly and Maggie in A Chorus Line. Most recently she starred as Adelaide in Performance Riverside’s Guys and Dolls. She has also been featured at the Candlelight Pavilion, the Glendale Centre Theatre, the Moonlight Amphitheatre, and in shows at the Disneyland Resort. She stars daily in the role of Mother, playing “princesses” with her 3-year-old twin daughters.
Isaac James is featured as Leadville Johnny Brown, with an ensemble featuring Fernando Acevedo, Brandon Alpert, Amy E. Bolton, Michael Cavinder, David Critchlow, Kaitlyn Etter, Chase Haninger, Jennifer Harmon, Joanne J. Lapointe, Nicole Manly, Rachel McLaughlin, Aaron Milligan, Michael Milligan, Lexy Romano, and Cedric Wright.

What is Gypsy"? From Wikipedia ...
"Gypsy:A Musical Fable" is a 1959 musical with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents. It is usually referred to as simply Gypsy. Gypsy is based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother." In particular, it follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. The character of Louise is based on Lee, and the character of June is based on Lee's sister, the actress June Havoc.
The musical contains many songs that became popular standards, including "Small World," "Everything's Coming up Roses", "You'll Never Get Away from Me," and "Let Me Entertain You." It is frequently considered one of the crowning achievements of the mid-20th century's conventional musical theatre art form, often called the "book musical."
Gypsy has been referred to as the greatest American musical by numerous critics and writers.
Tickets are $12 for students/seniors/military and $14 for general admission.
