Broadway Show History

Starlight's Broadway show history dates back to 1951. The inaugural season featured a ten show lineup that included The Desert Song, Rio Rita, Song of Norway, Roberta, Rose Marie, The Chocolate Soldier, Brigadoon, Bittersweet, Babes in Toyland and Naughty Marietta. Since that first year Starlight has presented self-produced musicals and Broadway national tours.
