Romy and Michele's World Premiere!

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion the Musical
(5th Avenue Theatre)


Do you know the fictional people who invented Post-It’s? If so, this show is for you! Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre will be presenting the world premiere of a new musical based on the 1997 comedy movie, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion the Musical this June. “Romy and Michele are two inseparable best friends whose relationship is put to the test when they invent fake careers to impress people at their 10-year high school reunion,” says the theatre.

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion features a creative team including Rock of Ages' director Kristin Hanggi and a book by the film's screenwriter, Robin Schiff. Though the musical is based on nostalgia, the music is all new but based on ‘80s and ‘90s pop and rock tunes with a score created by Gwendolyn Sanford and Brandon Jay who are composers of Orange is the New Black.

Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion will be presented from June 8-July 2, 2017. Tickets vary greatly in price depending on performance date and seating location, but consider attending the June 8 performance for 50% off your tickets. Tickets can be ordered online or by calling (206) 625-1900. The 5th Avenue Theatre is located at 1308 5th Ave., Seattle 98101.
