Desert Rose Playhouse Presents World Premiere Of “Mid Century Moderns” – A New Juke Box Musical


Robbie Wayne, Artistic Director of the Desert Rose Playhouse, announced today the world premiere production of a new musical comedy, “Mid-Century Moderns,” to debut Wednesday, January 19 and running for five weeks. The fabulous hits of ‘66 come to life in the delightful tale of a plucky Wisconsin widow who transforms from frump to fabulous when she finds herself at the center of modernity in Palm Springs!

Coachella Valley audiences will journey back to 1966 Palm Springs, along with the music of Tom Jones, Petula Clark, Lesley Gore, Frank and Nancy Sinatra, The Association, The Monkees and many more.

Written and directed by Mark Christopher, best known for the hit movie “54” starring Salma Hayek, Ryan Phillippe and Mike Myers, “Mid-Century Moderns” is the entertaining and comedic musical adventure of Maryann Popecky, who dreams of moving West to become a secretary! But when her car breaks down in the shadow of Mt San Jacinto, it seems that the fates have something else in store. She finds freedom from the ghost of her late husband, Ernie, and from all the old ways that have been holding her down…and she just might find love, but on her own mid-century terms.

“Mid-Century Moderns” features Christine Tringali Nunez as Maryann, Desert Theatre League award-winning actors Robbie Wayne, Dana Adkins and Kellee McQuinn, and Gary Powers, James Owens and Carlos Garica.

“We are extremely excited to introduce this fun and entertaining musical to the Coachella Valley and the world,” said Matthew McLean, Managing Director of the Desert Rose Playhouse.
