Fort Robinson State Park – Crawford, Nebraska
After hours of drive time and an afternoon thunderous rain storm our reward was an entertaining evening at the Post Playhouse located at Nebraska’s Fort Robinson State Park. A tradition since 1967, each summer a professional cast and crew present several musical productions in a repertory schedule. We saw My Way: a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra. Four vocalists, pianist and a musical trio shared 57 songs ‘Ol Blue Eyes recorded during his legendary career – a trip down memory lane.
No fancy dress required for the quaint theater evening, jeans and boots perfectly acceptable. Bob liked the fact he could crunch down on a bag of popcorn.
Other productions during the 2014 season include School House Rock Live!, Guys & Dolls, The Sound of Music, and 9 to 5: The Musical. Next time we’ll plan to stay several days at this outstanding state park and attend multiple shows at the Post Playhouse.
