As we move forward and become a more unique repertoire company, along with continuting to produce original plays, we have developed musical performances that include outstanding audio and integrated visual effects. Some favorite performances are the Tribute to our Military, Broadway Show, Holiday Show, Oscar for Mom, and our delightful Nuns of the Helpless Order of Mary. Many genres of music (based on decades of songs) are performed by Theatre Americana cast members, and often bring a standing ovation from our audiences. The cast volunteers thousands of hours to bring quality performances through community theatre.
"Glendale Healthy Kids is proud to partner with Theatre Americana. The professionalism and dedication of the volunteers always results in a stellar performance".

Tribute to Our Military Show - Memorable songs from the World War II era with so much grandness and pride our audiences sometimes stand for the whole performance. It has a nostalgic feel with a patriotic flair. Cast is costumed to represent all branches of the service.
Tribute to Our Military Holiday Show - Enjoy a traditional holiday show looking through the eyes of our military men and women. A military march to Winter Wonderland brings a new twist to a traditional song.
Polynesian Paradise - An audio & visual masterpiece. The costumes are colorful and the music brings the South Pacific to our audiences for a very enchanting evening. This show includes a fire dance with a drumming number with a boar's head ceremony.
50's - 80's Trip the Light Fantastic - Doo wop and disco to your favorite numbers with audiences singing and dancing in the aisles. Do the stroll, the mashed potato and the hustle, as we take you on a musical journey and trip the light fantastic through time.

Broadway Bliss - A musical review of some of the most popular Broadway melodies of all time with dancing and lots of glitz. A special performance of "Masquerade" from Phantom in full costume brings a little night music to our audiences. We bring Broadway right to your neighborhood without you having to go through security at the airport.
Meet Me at the Turn of the Century - Turn of the Century costumes make this parade of large hats and bowlers a wonderful experience for audiences. Take a ride on the trolley and the Atchison Topeka and bring a parasol in case it rains. It's a perfect addition to welcoming any season.
When The Spirit Moves You - A spiritual array of moving and inspirational music with some toe-tapping gospel and lyrical dances. It's the best way to celebrate new beginnings with the Sisters of the Helpless Order of Mary.
Wild West Wonder - Enjoy the history of the west with music that makes audiences want to sing for their supper. It' might be fun to play cowboys and Indians again - but don't mess with the cowgirls.
An Oscar for Mom - A beautiful tribute to all mothers or to any woman who have made a difference in someone’s life. It’s perfect for a Mother/Daughter Tea or for celebrating Mother’s Day. There’s even a children story with talking animals. A memorable experience for all who attend.
Mary of the Avenue - Mary of the Avenue was co-written by Greg Wood and Neil Scanlan, and is a lighthearted musical about street people living in New York City. The play is about a woman, Mary, who graces the streets of Manhattan, wearing Broadway playbills in the lining of her weathered coat to keep her warm. She keeps an array of colorful street characters as her friends who will make you laugh at their delusional, yet refreshing outlook on life. Mary's life is turned upside down when her daughter, Carrie, seeks help in finding Mary to bring her home. The play is charming, light hearted and filled with wonderful music based on original scores, with such songs as " Designer Clothes”, “Homeless Not Hopeless”, "Sacks of Fifth Avenue”, ”Life's a Pisser” and more.
All of our shows include full costumes, and we provide our own sound system.
