Overview

Beaches the Musical features a book by Iris Rainer Dart & Thom Thomas, music by Mike Stoller, lyrics by Iris Rainer Dart, based on the novel Beaches by Iris Rainer Dart, and developed in collaboration with David Austin.

A new musical based on the best-selling novel that was made into the blockbuster film Beaches, Beaches the Musical follows two extraordinary friends through 30 years of camaraderie, laughter, sorrow and love. Vivacious, outlandish Cee Cee and beautiful, privileged Bertie meet as children and become fast friends. From pen-pals to roommates to romantic rivals, Cee Cee and Bertie’s oil-and-water friendship perseveres through even the most tragic trials. With a touching vulnerability, Beaches the Musical exemplifies the triumph of the human spirit and the bonds of sisterhood.

Beaches the Musical is presented by Theatre CalgaryJennifer Maloney-Prezioso, Douglas McJannet for Arden Entertainment, Alison Spiriti for Right Angle Entertainment, and Broadway & Beyond (Tracey McFarland, Ryan Bogner, Victoria Lang).

Directing Beaches the Musical will be Lonny Price, and co-directed by Matt Cowart. Price and Cowart recently collaborated to bring the world premiere of The Louder We Get to Theatre Calgary in January, 2020.
