Oh, Those Summer Nights! Upper Darby Summer Stage Night at Rose Tree Park Tonight!
Almost halfway through its 36th Season now, Upper Darby Summer Stage tonight is set for an evening of performances at Rose Tree Park in Media. While the Upper Darby Summer Stage Shooting Stars will make up most of the show, Summer Stage is truly pulling some magic out of their sleeve tonight including performances by the cast of children’s theatre casts of Narnia, Rugrats: A Live Adventure and the adult cast of the epic mainstage musical Titanic: the Musical as Summer Stage Night at Rose Tree kicks into full gear!
Rose Tree Park is an outdoor park located in Media, PA which has multiple paths for biking/hiking, large fields for recreation and an amphitheatre which is used each summer for its Summer Festival. The Summer Festival at Rose Tree Park has performances set for every single night of the summer in the Amphitheatre. Tonight, Upper Darby Summer Stage takes the stage in their annual performance here which is sure to fill the park.
The Upper Darby Summer Stage Shooting Stars is a group consisted of about 40 members which represent Summer Stage all year long. The group is auditioned and is made up of the current best singers, dancers and actors. Performing hits ranging from Broadway to Disney to Billy Joel, the Upper Darby Summer Stage Shooting Stars perform year along at nursing homes, community events and help to spread the spirit and magic of Summer Stage. Their show tonight titled “The Best of Shooting Stars” is set to bring back classics and old favorites for alumni of the group. Ranging from a Wicked Medley to A Single Voice to swing dancin’, tonight the Shooting Stars will pull out all the stops.
However, that is not all that is performing tonight! Upper Darby Summer Stage also gives a chance to the upcoming childrens theatre show to perform to give a sneak peek into what their show will be. That production this year is the upcoming childrens theatre show, Narnia. Narnia will be performing “Wot A Bit of Spring” to showcase their upcoming production opening later this week at Summer Stage. Narnia will take us on an adventure through the wardrobe with the lovable and troublesome Pevensie children who find themselves not only in a magical land but in the middle of a war. Will they fulfill an ancient prophecy or die at the hand of an evil witch? Find out on Monday as Luner on Theatre previews Narnia this week at Upper Darby Summer Stage!
But hold on a second! Curve Ball! Summer Stage has also decided to allow the fourth childrens theatre show to perform to showcase their upcoming production in two weeks. That production is the new show filled with fun, Rugrats: A Live Adventure! This new action packed stage show based off of your favorite 90’s Nickelodeon characters! The hit TV show for Nickelodeon celebrates 20 years of Rugrats later this summer. The cast of Rugrats will perform “Shine Your Light” to showcase their cartoony and crazy show opening in two weeks at Summer Stage!

And finally, Upper Darby Summer Stage will showcase their epic mounting of their Main Stage musical this year, Titanic.
