Shelby’s Pre-Show Checklist: May


Brelby has some exciting projects in the works this summer…and while we’re not ready to announce them all just yet, we do have a lot of action taking place at The Playhouse throughout the month of May. 

We’re deep into rehearsals for the Arizona premiere of Fly By Night, a beautiful new musical that received it’s New York premiere at Playwrights Horizons in 2014. The sweet story follows Harold McClam, an average sandwich maker and aspiring musician and the two sisters (Daphne and Miriam) with whom his life is soon intertwined. Set amongst the historic Northeast blackout of 1965, the show explores love, loss, light and darkness…and the way that they all impact our lives. The show is intimate, even for our venue, featuring a cast of seven and a lone piano player, as they tell this haunting story.

Performing May 11-June 2, tickets are on sale now at

Historic Downtown Glendale is the place to go for fun festivals year round. This Mother’s Day weekend is no exception. Bring your mom to check out the shops on Saturday May 12th from 10am-4pm, and you can collect carnations for her as you go. Brelby will have stations for mom to wrap them up into a beautiful bouquet. We’ll also be featuring performances from some of our best singers in the gazebo from 11am-3pm. Stop by, pick up a glass of lemonade, and listen to the beautiful voices flowing. At 3pm, we’ll have a special free performance from our improv team, Results May Vary. You can also check out some of our artisans in the courtyard, selling handmade crafts. It’s going to be a great way to treat your mom to a special day!

Results May Vary improv is delighted to keep bringing the laughs in Downtown Glendale. We just had a round of auditions in April, and we’re excited to announce some new faces soon. 

You can join the fun for a double feature Sunday on May 6th at 5:00pm, when your ticket to see the matinee of Fly By Night will grant you complimentary admission to the early show. You can also drop by just for the improv adventures and enjoy our Radical Hospitality Month at RMV. This means…that you pay what you can at the door. Is it a tight month? Drop a dollar. Feeling generous? Slip us a $20. It doesn’t matter what you pay, as long as we see your face.


We’re gearing up for some summer programming, and that means that we have a round of Auditions coming up on May 26th!
Brelby is partnering with Space 55 in Downtown Phoenix to offer a special co-production of Playing Games by Brian Maticic. The show will perform in August, and rehearses throughout July.
