Featuring hits from the legendary Jimmy Buffett, Escape to Margaritaville follows the story of a hotel singer and a part-time bartender who fall for two career-minded tourists. This hilarious and heartwarming musical, featuring famous Jimmy Buffet songs like “Let’s Get Drunk”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” and more, is the party you’ve been waiting for! Set your mind on island time and rock out while the sun sets and the Ledge Amphitheater transforms into a tropical paradise.

“This crowd-pleasing slice of paradise will knock your flip-flops off!”
