— Some of Broadway’s hottest musicals will be coming to Dayton as part of the Victoria Theatre Association’s 2017-18 season.
Included in the lineup announced Monday evening are “An American in Paris,” “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” and “Something Rotten.” Also on tap: a new production of “Phantom of the Opera,” a new revival of “The Sound of Music” and “In the Heights,” the musical that earned “Hamilton’s” Lin-Manuel Miranda his first Tony award.
A treat for the kids of all ages this summer is Disney’s “A Little Mermaid” as part of the Star Attractions Aug. 8-13.

More than 650 theater enthusiasts — season ticket-holders, sponsors and Victoria Theatre Association friends — gathered at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center at 5:30 p.m. in anticipation of the announcement made by VTA staff, Wright State University students and special guest performers.
The surprise appearances included Sarah Bockel, understudy for the Carole King role in “Beautiful” on Broadway, and Nick Rashad Burroughs from the national tour of “Something Rotten.”
Bockel performed two songs from “Beautiful”; Burroughs shared stories about “Something Rotten” and helped sling T-shirts into the crowd.
