Broadway Rose Theatre Company presents The Double-Threat Trio, a deliciously zany musical comedy sharing the woes and raptures of show business. Preview performance is Thursday, January 25, with opening night on Friday, January 26, and performances continuing through February 18. Evening performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Matinees are at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. A post-show talkback will be hosted at the Saturday matinee on February 3; audio description is available at the Saturday matinee on February 10. Performances are held at the Broadway Rose New Stage located at 12850 SW Grant Avenue in Tigard.

To make it on Broadway you have to be a triple-threat – you have to sing, dance, AND act. In a city of rising stars, Nina, Kenny, and Jamison are out of luck. Nina sings, but can’t act; Kenny dances, but can’t sing; and Jamison, a classically trained actor, can’t dance. Enjoy the screwball hijinks of these three Broadway hopefuls as they pool their talents to pursue their dreams in The Double-Threat Trio, a new work by Adam Overett.

The world premiere of The Double-Threat Trio took place at Pittsburgh CLO; Broadway Rose will offer the second production of this work. “We believe that new works and young writers are the future of our industry, and our goal at Broadway Rose has been to feature one of these new works in our season line-up each year,” says Producing Artistic Director Sharon Maroney.

Music, lyrics, and book by Adam Overett. The Double-Threat Trio is directed and choreographed by Dan Murphy, with musical direction by Lissa Halsinger. Scenic design by Raef Wheaton with lighting design by Jeff Forbes and costume design by Samantha Kuester.

Properties design by Sam Manilla and sound design by Brian Karl Moen, with Seth Renne as production manager, and Jessica Junor as production stage manager.

The cast includes Trevor Hennigan, Margo Schembre, Galen Schloming, and Leah Yorkston.

Tickets are priced from $30 to $54 for adults (depending on date). Tickets in the upper section for ages 6-18 are $20 and ages 19-35 are $25. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.
