The Cameron Sullenberger Overture Series: Thrilling Scores. Beloved Stories. Memorable Artistry.
Revival Theatre Company’s Cameron Sullenberger Overture Series is a new annual event that raises funds for RTC programs and educational offerings. This new series was developed in memory of our co-founder and musical director Cameron Sullenberger, who passed away in February 2023 during a rehearsal for our first show of 2023.
Cameron was passionate about singers and musicians, and this series reflects those interests. The new annual event will bring together the area’s best in the musical theatre and classic Broadway scores or intimate solo concerts — for a two-night-only event.
Please note: The Sullenberger Overture Series is an add-on to RTC’s season and therefore is not part of a standard season subscription.
Jason Robert Brown’s Tony Award winning Parade will be presented April 12-13, 2024, at 7:30 pm at CSPS Hall as a benefit concert for RTC. General admission tickets are $82 for floor seating and $52 for riser seating.
Pay What You Can is now being offered for Parade.
What is Pay What You Can (PWYC)? It means pay whatever you are comfortable with at our ticket office starting at 5:30p on the day of the show. Tickets are subject to availability. We are happy to offer a PWYC so everyone can have access to live theatre.
