Everyone, young and old, is invited to the year-round Oktoberfest celebration you will never forget.
OKTOBERFEST THE MUSICAL – An Almost True Story is a musical comedy to be enjoyed year-round, filled with spectacular songs, ranging from spirited oom-pah-pah polkas, jazzy burlesque numbers and delicate love duets to Broadway show-stoppers.
The audience enters a Munich beer hall complete with traditional long tables and benches and waiters and waitresses in Bavarian dress to enjoy a night of song, dance and merriment hosted by a jovial Emcee. But the show’s producer unexpectedly shows up, outraged that the Emcee has subverted her historically accurate drama of the romance between a prince and princess, into an “almost true” musical romp. The battle between Emcee and producer sends the troupe of hapless performers spinning out of control into hilarious chaos.
