Harlequin Productions presents The Magical Mystery Midsummer Musical. After years as a rock musician and songwriter, Harlequin Musical Director Bruce Whitney began composing music for theater when his sister-in-law, Linda Whitney, invited him to score a production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the Summer of 1988. Since then, he has composed music and song for over 30 productions. He has musically directed every Stardust Christmas show since 2001 and nine original summer rock’n’roll celebrations. This year, Harlequin is celebrating his 30th anniversary in theater with a show that features his music performed with the magic of illusion, singers, dancers, and aerial artists to explore the mysteries of inspiration. The Magical Mystery Midsummer Musical runs through the 21st at the Historic State Theater in Downtown Olympia. More information and tickets are available now at harlequinproductions.org.
