The Rev Theatre Co. is asking its audience to pick which shows are presented on the stage of the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse next season.
Shows can be voted on at therevtheatre.com/season-vote through Tuesday, June 30.
The options are:
• "42nd Street"
• "Footloose: The Musical"
• "Into the Woods"
• "Ragtime: The Musical"
The show will go on, somewhat, at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse this summer.
• "Almost Heaven: John Denver's America"
• "Lerner & Loewe's Camelot"
• "Rocky: The Musical"
• "Rodgers & Hammerstein's State Fair"
• "Barry Manilow's Copacabana: The Musical"
• "In the Heights"
• "The Scottsboro Boys"
• "Hello, Dolly!"
• "Sister Act"
• "Catch Me If You Can: The Musical"
• "The Spitfire Grill"
• "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"
• "The Sound of Music"
• "Little House on the Prairie: The Musical"
• "Kinky Boots"
People can vote for 10 shows, as well as their first, second and third choices.
The winning four or five shows will be announced at "The Rev Concert: A Celebration of Art and Community."
The virtual event, which will also feature behind-the-scenes looks at the company and its Emerson Park playhouse, will take place later this summer.
"This season we have to be creative to make sure that we keep theater a part of your summer," said the company's producing artistic director, Brett Smock, in a video announcement of its 2020 plans. "Now more than ever, we need theater."
The concert will be followed by a virtual performance of the final show of The Rev's 2020 season, "Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story." The rest of the season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But two of its shows, "Rocky" and "State Fair," are among the options for the 2021 season. Other options were collected from an audience survey last year.
