The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Summer Blockbusters lovingly skewers your favorite summer movies from Back to the Future to The Matrix, taking you on a wild ride from Jurassic Park into Jaws. Cape Cod native Kate Pazakis has made a name for herself on the West Coast with her outrageously popular “UMPO” (or “unauthorized musical parody of”) series at L.A.’s Rockwell Table, using popular music and razor sharp wit to lampoon hit movies and today’s popular culture. Now she brings her comedic eye to a new original work commissioned for the Cape Rep stage.
The cast features Cape Rep favorites Anthony Teixeira (Shakespeare In Love, Mamma Mia!), Jess Andra (Men On Boats, A New Brain) and Kelly Plescia (Merrily We Roll Along, Mamma Mia!) joined by newcomers Caitlin Gallogly, Nathan Richardson and Djon Alexander.
The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Summer Blockbusters! is presented with the support of Aqua Bar and Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters. Cape Rep’s 34th season is made possible through the generous support of Cape Air and Zudy, our 2019 season sponsors. Cape Rep Theatre: professional theater in an intimate setting.
