Welcome to Margaritaville! There’s no better place to relax, sing along, and have the time of your life! This upbeat and energetic new show features all your favorite Jimmy Buffett classics including “Volcano”, “Fins”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, and of course “Margaritaville”. With a tropical island theme, this heartwarming musical is the party you’ve been waiting for!

Desert TheatreWorks is pleased to announce that singer/songwriter Steve Knill will be starring as Tully in DTW’s production of Escape to Margaritaville this Spring. Steve most recently appeared on Kelly Clarkson’s team on season 17 of NBC’s The Voice. He has always wanted to expand his horizons and explore musical theatre, but wasn’t sure if there was a place for him in this genre. When Steve heard about the opportunity to appear in a musical featuring the music of singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, he felt he’d found his place.


“If you’re looking for an escape, look no further than DTW’s Escape to Margaritaville. The combination of Jimmy Buffett’s music and insanely talented cast of singers/dancers is the perfect recipe for the party show of the season! If you’re searching for your lost shaker of salt or dreaming of a cheeseburger in paradise, you’ll find it in this fun-filled talent-packed musical.”

~ Rebecca McWilliams, Director

“Desert TheatreWorks is extremely honored to be one of the few small theaters in America to be granted theatrical rights for Jimmy Buffett’s Escape to Margaritaville. And not only is this show infectiously fun, but it’s filled with so many of Mr. Buffett’s signature tunes. Audiences can expect a tropical party from the moment they enter the theater. All attendees are asked to wear their tropical best. The show features a live band (including a steel drum) and stars Steve Knill from NBC’s The Voice Season 17 leading a wonderfully talented cast. This is a must-see theatrical event!”

~ Lance Phillips, Artistic Director
