The Central Florida premiere of “Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical” will take place for the first time on the Osceola Arts Main Stage in Kissimmee beginning Friday, June 9th and running through Sunday, June 18th.
Created by Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin, and Roger Kumble, this jukebox musical is based on the 1999 motion picture, Cruel Intentions.
In both the film and musical, lead characters Sebastian and Kathryn are bored with their daily elite prep school activities and have whipped up a risqué wager: Can Sebastian seduce the new headmaster’s virtuous daughter? On the path to victory, they find themselves tangled in a web of secrets and temptations. Directed by Michael Knight, this modern musical features a talented cast and is packed with nostalgic 90’s pop hits.
Tickets are only $28, with Senior, student and group rates available. Showtimes for Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical are 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays, and an additional 2pm matinee performance on Saturday, June 17th. An American Sign Language-interpreted performance will be featured during the June 17th matinee. This production will also include an Audio Description performance for blind and low-vision patrons on Saturday, June 17th at 7:30pm.
