The theatre’s first show is a new version of “Aida,” with music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice. This creative pair first came to fame in the Broadway world for their collaboration on Disney’s “Lion King.”

“Aida” opens this Friday, June 16. The three other forthcoming hit musicals this summer are “Hairspray,” “Sister Act” and “Big River,” which will be performed in rotation with “Aida” until the end of August.
