The Toledo Repertoire Theatre’s regional premier of VICTOR/ VICTORIA, directed by James M. Norman, opens June 4th at 8:00 pm.

Carroll Todd (David James), the resident performer at Henri Labisse’s (Tim Keogh) Chez Lui meets a penniless English soprano, Victoria Grant (Ann M. Steck). Toddy befriends Victoria and convinces her to become Europe’s greatest female impersonator – Victor! Victor’s show-stopping performances at once make him the toast of Gay Paree. Things become complicated when American business-man – cum gangster figure, King Marchan (Zachary Lahey), becomes enamored of Victor much to the amusement of his brassy girlfriend Norma (Lindsey Denham) and his loyal bodyguard Squash (Matt Richardson). King is convinced Victor is a woman, and determined to prove it. Is she a he-she, a she-he? Chaos and love ensue in this charming musical-comedy written by Blake Edwards with music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. Additional music by Frank Wildhorn. The 14 piece orchestra is under the musical direction of Josh Glover with choreography by Brian Rodabaugh.
