Seaside Heights will revive its Broadway Meets the Beach series this summer, giving Shore residents and visitors a chance to experience world-class theater with the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop.

There will be three events spanning July and August, according to producer Dee Pellegrino, who worked with the borough as well as Broadway veteran Joseph John Brunetti. The performances will be held July 16, Aug. 13, and Aug. 27, featuring stars of Broadway’s biggest Shows including Rock of Ages, Aladdin, The Producers, Chicago, Young Frankenstein, Kinky Boots, Mamma Mia, A Bronx Tale, Les Miserables – with more being planned.

“After the cancellation of all shows last year, we are so excited to once again celebrate the Shore and all it has to offer by bringing such amazing Broadway talent and music to the boardwalk in Seaside Heights”, said Brunetti and Pellegrino, in an announcement.
