Four performers sing more than 50 classics such as “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” and “New York, New York.” Experience the elegance of “The Chairman of the Board” as you’re transported back to the era of supper clubs, vintage Las Vegas, and the perfect martini. My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra will be presented from May 24 – June 11, 2023.

The Bodyguard: Based on the smash hit 1992 film, The Bodyguard follows former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, who is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge; what they don’t expect is to fall in love.

Jersey Boys: Get ready for the international sensation Jersey Boys to take over Theatre By The Sea! They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard…and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story – a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. Winner of the 2006 Tony® Award for “Best Musical,” Jersey Boys features the legendary top ten hits “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night).” Jersey Boys will be presented from August 9 – September 10, 2023.
