The Gateway Theatre
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Book by David Thompson
Director: Brandon Jackson
Music Director: Daniel Alley
“A masterwork, both daring and highly entertaining.” – New York Post
This haunting true story of nine African-American teenagers is told in one of the final collaborations of Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret). Falsely accused of a terrible crime in 1930s Alabama, the men face a corrupt and discriminatory justice system with varying degrees of defiance and hope.

Opening Night date for THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS: Saturday, March 11th, 2021
Get all your burning questions answered about the show you’ve just seen during our fun and informative post-performance discussions with the audience, cast, and crew. Hosted by Executive Directors Daren A.C. Carollo and Daniel Thomas, who will share the history of the original production as well as our current incarnation! Learn more about the composers, lyricists, and book writers, as well as your favorite Moonie cast members. Discussion Sundays happen on the first and second Sunday of each show in our regular season offerings.
Family & Student Matinees
The best deal in town for kids, parents, and students of all ages. Young people under 18 and college students with a valid student ID can see the show for just $10! Younger students receive a family activity guide, get to participate in an intermission contest (with prizes!), and can join in on a post-show discussion and visit with the actors that includes autographs and pictures. This is a great way to introduce the next generation to the heritage of American musical theatre. This is also a great idea for a kid’s birthday party. Please contact Education Director Anne Norland for further details or if you have a large group wishing to attend.
42nd Street Moon created the Family Matinee to make musical theatre affordable and accessible for young people along with their parents and to provide families the opportunity to experience classic Broadway. Relevant, fun activities and fascinating discussion guides enable families to rediscover how theatre has served an important function in our nation’s cultural landscape and been a way for families to come together. We have expanded the matinee to be a Family and Student Matinee, so that college-aged students can also take advantage of the generous discount.
