Runaway Stage Productions presents regional premier of Bonnie & Clyde
SACRAMENTO — Runaway Stage Productions presents the Sacramento Regional Premier of the new musical based on the legendary outlaws, Bonnie and Clyde. Bob Baxter directs the production, playing September 5 through 29 at the Sierra 2 Center 24th Street Theatre in downtown Sacramento.

At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and the Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless, and alluring, their electrifying story of love, adventure and crime captured the excited attention of an entire country.
Now, the most notorious couple of the twentieth century takes on a whole new adventure: the stage. When Bonnie & Clyde meet, their mutual cravings for excitement and fame immediately set them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run from every southern state’s police force, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer. Bonnie & Clyde is a thrilling and sexy musical with a non-traditional score, combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music.
Jennifer Zimny plays Bonnie, David Holmes plays Clyde, Darryl Strohl choreographs and Deann Golz leads the Runaway Stage Productions Resident Orchestra.
