This hilarious, heartwarming musical is the party you’ve been waiting for to “kick off” your summer!
    “Get ready to take parrotheads and theatre patrons to the island of Margaritaville and escape this crazy world we all find ourselves in these days, for a few hours of fun,” says Jimmy Buffett.
    Margaritaville, where people come to get away from it all – and stay to find something they never expected. Get out to TLP for a hilarious and heartwarming musical with the most unforgettable songs from one of music’s greatest storytellers. USA Today calls it “A little slice of paradise!”, so don’t let the party start without you!
    “To bring this fun, laid-back musical to TLP is something we felt we ALL needed in today's world.” said Paul Stancato, Artistic Director of TLP. “There's no other way to kick-off our 2022 season, and I'm looking forward to seeing all the Parrotheads at the playhouse with their FINS UP”.
    Escape to Margaritaville is directed by Nick Dalton, choreography by Rebecca Fraiser and musical direction by Michael McBride with Scenic Design by Josh Iacovelli, Light Design by John Burkland, Costume Design by Terrie Miller, Props Design by Callie Hester, Sound Design by Tyler Malone and Projection Design by Alex Gendal.
    The cast features the 2022 Resident Company, as well as TLP alums Darren Mangler and Altamiece Cooper.
    On Saturday, June 10, stick around after the show for the Meet the Company Cabaret on the Lake Stage where TLP company members will perform songs from The American Songbook. The Lake Stage is located across the street from the Playhouse behind the TLP Administrative Office. The Deck Bar will also be open.
    Plan your escape to the new musical about the choices we make – and the people we become...once we’ve had a change in latitude. Come Back to Timber Lake Playhouse for the first show of the 2022 season, Jimmy Buffett’s Escape To Margaritaville.
