NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio - Ohio’s longest-running outdoor historical drama, returns this summer for its 52nd season.
Trumpet in the Land will reopen Monday, July 5 at the Schoenbrunn Amphitheatre in New Philadelphia, Ohio, ahead of many stage productions to take place later this summer.
“Originally scheduled to open July 2nd, the show will now open Monday, July 5th, due to technical issues which must be addressed before the show can go on,” said Trumpet general manager Margaret Bonamico.
“Like most other performing arts venues and events, we were forced to take a hiatus last summer due to an abundance of caution surrounding the pandemic,” said Bonamico. “We are glad to be back. Even though technical issues have caused us to push back our opening a few days, our cast and crew are looking forward to presenting a summer schedule designed to appeal to anyone looking for a wide variety of entertainment options.”
Other shows will include Rodgers & Hammerstein’s A Grand Night for Singing on July 9 and 15; The Sound of Music on July 23; 25 Years of Broadway, a one night only homage to the many Broadway musicals that have been performed on the amphitheater stage over the past 25 years on July 29; Greased Lightning on August 5; and Dracula on October 1, 2, 8, and 9.
For the July 5 Trumpet performance at 8:30 p.m., tickets may be purchased for $5 at the Tuscarawas County Convention and Visitors’ Bureau located at 124 E. High Ave. in New Philadelphia, or at the Trumpet in the Land box office.
