Seasonal Special Happenings

Miss Saigon at Near West Theatre

When: Fri., July 22 and Sun., Aug. 7 2011

Miss Saigon brings Puccini's Madame Butterfly to post-millennium America in a moving testament to the resiliency of the human spirit. In the final chaos of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. This is an intimate story of love, war, loyalty, survival and a mother's drive to give her child a future of promise. Raw and uncompromising, Miss Saigon is an intense experience of the losses suffered and the sacrifices made in a fearful world using violence to achieve peace. Songs include: "The Movie In My Mind," "Sun & Moon" and "The Last Night of the World." The show will run from July 22 to August 7. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday the show starts at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Price: $8 Adults, $6 Children 12 and under
