Slow Burn Theatre Co. (SBTC), in residence at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, is promising its hottest season yet with five big Broadway musicals.

The season features “Footloose – The Musical,” Dec. 17 – Jan. 1, the stage adaptation of the popular ‘80s film featuring Kevin Bacon. Artistic Director Patrick Fitzwater and his talented creative team and performers then tackle the regional premiere of Andrew Bergman and Jason Robert Brown’s “Honeymoon in Vegas – The Musical,” Feb. 4 – 19. Already, this season is looking like a jackpot, pardon the pun.  

SBTC’s season concludes with two Disney favorites: “Mary Poppins,” March 25 – April 9, and “Newsies: The Broadway Musical,” June 10 – 25. Get the kids hyped up on a few spoonfuls of sugar and then they’ll tackle the nonstop athletic choreography in “Newsies.”  

And if this season isn’t news enough, SBTC recently opened their own scenic shop, where they will be constructing all their own sets, as well as sets for other local companies.
