What's the story?

From the creators of Chicago and Fiddler On The Roof comes Musical Theatre Productions’ spring showing of Zorba! Based on the novel Zorba The Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis, and the 1964 Academy Award winning film, Zorba is an uncompromising musical salute to Greece, love and being alive! In this story, an aging nomad and a tight-laced Athenian intellectual discover what “life is”.

With rousing dance numbers, soaring melodies, and an exuberant message, Zorba is a musical experience with “olympic” offerings!
