Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame the musical an unforgettable instant classic, plays from June 14 – July 8 in the Solvang Festival Theater. Based on Victor Hugo’s gothic novel, Quasimodo, the misshaped bell-ringer, is held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, who plans to destroy the gypsies, including the enthralling Esmeralda. Cornered in an unlikely love quadrangle between Frollo, the handsome Captain Phoebus, and the kindly Esmerelda, it’s up to Quasimodo to save the day in this brand new musical.

In Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, playwright Christopher Durang puts dysfunction to hilarious effect when three siblings reunite in the family’s Bucks County, PA home. It plays in the Solvang Festival Theater July 12 – 22. Vanya and Sonia bicker and pine about the dashed dreams and squandered hopes of their lives when their movie-star sister, Masha, suddenly swoops in with her new boy-toy, Spike.

The sunny and funny Mamma Mia! spins and sparkles into the ultimate feel-good smash hit musical for summer 2018. In Solvang to play under the stars from July 27 through August 26. The energy and charm of ABBA’s songs propel this enchanting tale with love, laughter and friendship. On the eve of her wedding, Sophie has secretly invited three men from her mother Donna's past back to the Greek island paradise they last visited 20 years ago in a quest to discover the identity of her father. Donna’s long-time friends from her past girl-group “Donna and the Dynamos” also arrive for the wedding to catch up and reminisce, turning a trip down the aisle into one you’ll never forget!

From the author of Shakespeare in Love, Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia is considered one of the greatest plays of its time. It runs August 30 – September 9 in the Solvang Festival Theater. Arcadia is a romantic mystery set in the elegant Coverly estate and taking place in both 1809 and the present. Two plot lines run parallel across time with intertwining themes. While thirteen-year-old Lady Thomasina and her tutor delve into intellectual and romantic issues, the present day finds the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars researching horticulture and a possible scandal at the estate in 1809. Stoppard’s brilliant Olivier and Tony-winning play traverses the centuries exploring the nature of truth and time, the difference between Classical and Romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits - the attraction which Newton left out.
