A summer tradition for many Southern Nevadans is to enjoy a theater production under the stars at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park. Super Summer Theatre will open its 36th season with a performance of the musical hit "Crazy for You" June 13. The play will continue through June 30.

The lineup continues with "Oliver!" July 11-28; "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," Aug. 8-25; and "Leader of the Pack," Sept. 6-22.

"Crazy for You" is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930s playboy, whose dream in life is to escape banking so he can dance.

Charles Dickens' classic tale comes to life in this musical adaptation of Oliver Twist! Performed worldwide, "Oliver!" is the inspiring story of an orphan who remains diligent and optimistic even as he is mistreated by those around him.
