“Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Escape To Margaritaville’ is a true feel-good musical that will bring a little slice of island paradise to our North Shore audience. With this production, we want to finish the summer with the party everyone has been waiting for,” owner and producer Bill Hanney said. “We have assembled a  fantastic creative team led by the show’s director and choreographer, Charlie Sutton, and a high-energy cast featuring Wes Williams and Dakota Mackey-McGee. I am eager to see our NSMT audiences and the ‘Parrot Heads’ coming together to enjoy this fun musical.” 

Jimmy Buffett’s “Escape to Margaritaville” is an upbeat and energetic new musical comedy featuring new music by Jimmy Buffett, along with some of his most-loved classics, including “Cheeseburger in  Paradise”, “Margaritaville,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Fins,” “Volcano,” and many more.  

“Escape to Margaritaville” follows the story of a part-time bartender, part-time singer, and full-time charmer named Tully who thinks he’s got life all figured out until a beautiful career-minded tourist steals his heart and makes him question everything. With a book by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia (“My Name is Earl,” “Raising Hope”) and Emmy nominee Mike O’Malley (“Survivor’s Remorse,” “Shameless”), this hilarious, heartwarming musical is the party we have all been waiting for!
