MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS

AUG 1 - AUG 22

The world premiere of this joyous new musical lights up the Ogunquit Playhouse stage with music by Tony Award-nominee Wayne Barker and book and lyrics by Tony Award-winner BD Wong. Mr. Holland’s Opus follows an aspiring young composer who begrudgingly takes a job as a high school music teacher “temporarily” to make ends meet while starting a family with his new wife. Life has its own plans, and his “temporary” job stretches over four decades and his dream of composing a great symphony is forced to take a back seat, as he struggles with the challenges of parenthood and unfulfilled dreams – until he realizes that teaching is his true calling. Adapted from the beloved Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film written by Patrick Sheane Duncan, this funny and moving show is a buoyant love letter to the essential joy of making music, parenthood, and the special place we keep in our hearts for our favorite teachers. Who was your Mr. Holland? 

Run Time: To be determined

Content Advisory: Recommended for ages 12 and up for mild adult themes. (There is no official rating system for live theatre.) We encourage you to use your judgment based on your own research of the show, your own sensibilities, and a child's age and maturity level.
