Damn Yankees

October 16th-25th, 2015

Cabrillo's Fall Classic! You've been asking for us to bring back DAMN YANKEES, last performed here in 1996! Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind. Colorful characters, smashing dance numbers, and songs including "Whatever Lola Wants," "You Gotta Have Heart," and "The Good Old Days," are show highlights. DAMN YANKEES ran for over 1,000 performances on Broadway, enjoyed a successful film version and a popular Broadway revival, and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, DAMN YANKEES promises to start the 2015-2016 season with a Home Run!

Children of Eden

April 8-17, 2016

Every year, Cabrillo provides a delightful new show to surprise our audiences. This year, meet the CHILDREN OF EDEN! Based on the stories of Adam and Eve, and of Noah and the Ark, it’s actually the story of parents and children…. of knowing when to hold on tightly to family…. And of knowing when to let go. In other words, it’s the story of all of us. And with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, PIPPIN, GODSPELL and more) and script by John Caird (co-director of LES MISERABLES), CHILDREN OF EDEN fills the stage with beautiful music, story, dance, humor and imagery. We promise that you’ll come out of the Kavli Theatre surprised and happy. Welcome the spring when Cabrillo Music Theatre introduces you to CHILDREN OF EDEN.
