LATROBE, PA—Saint Vincent Summer Theatre (SVST) will conclude its 53rdseason with “Some Enchanted Evening: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein,” which will run from July 18 through 23. Previous shows this season were “The Andrews Brothers” and “Moon Over Buffalo.”

A revue of some of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II’s most popular songs, “Some Enchanted Evening” places five performers¾each of whom could easily be cast in any Rodgers and Hammerstein show¾in a theatrical setting¾first "backstage,” where the songs are sung as personal interplay and then "on stage" where the songs are "performed" for the audience. The title itself is a nod to the song “Some Enchanted Evening” from “South Pacific” and is performed in the show. The show also features songs from “Oklahoma!,” “The Sound of Music,” “Carousel,” “The King and I” and “Cinderella.”

“’Some Enchanted Evening: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein’ will feature some of the most memorable music from some of the most iconic musicals ever written,” Greggory Brandt, Assistant Professor of Theater at SVC and Producing Artistic Director for SVST, said. “If you love any of their 11 musicals from ‘Oklahoma’ to ‘The Sound of Music,’ you will surely enjoy this production.”


“Some Enchanted Evening: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein” stars Shane Tapley, Ryan Sammonds, Abby Middleton, Josey Miller and Sarah Chelli. 

All shows this season are directed by Brandt and will take place in the Performing Arts Center, located within the Robert S. Carey Student Center on campus. There will be three matinee performances on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and five evening performances Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. for each production. Complimentary transportation will be provided from the parking areas to the Performing Arts Center. Handicap parking closer to the theater is also available.

The Cabaret, the post-show reception outside on the Carey Center patio, also returns this summer. There will be a charge of $5 per person, which will include hotdogs, popcorn and various drinks for patrons’ enjoyment.
