TMP announces six-show 2015-16 season

OK, OK, I know it’s on the wrong (south) side of the Narrows Bridge. But Tacoma Musical Playhouse is just barely across the bridge, after all, in the old Narrows Theater building on Sixth. And the company’s acting roster is swelling lately with performers from Kitsap, including Alena Menefee, who’s playing the title role in the current well-reviewed production of “Evita.”

TMP just released its lineup for the 2015-16 season. If they keep attracting some of the talent from up our way — and even if they don’t — the list of upcoming shows, including the two yet to come in the 2014-15 season, are worth a look:

May 5-June 7: “Buddy — The Buddy Holly Story”
July 10-Aug. 2: “West Side Story”

And the just-announced 2015-16 schedule:

Sept. 18-Oct. 11: “Oliver!”
Nov. 27-Dec. 20: “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”
Feb. 5-28: “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”
April 8-May 1: “The Scarlet Pimpernel”
May 20-June 12: “The Wiz” (the “Ease on Down the Road” one, not the “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” one)
July 8-31: “Mary Poppins”

The theater is at 7116 Sixth Ave. in Tacoma, with free parking across the street.
Tickets and information: 253-565-6867,
