The world premiere of the musical “Dave” is Friday, July 13 at 8 p.m. at the Kreeger Theatre at Arena Stage (1101 6th St. N.W.).

The musical comedy is adapted from the eponymous Oscar-nominated film. “Dave” is the story of Dave Kovic, a high school teacher who looks like the president. He is hired by the Secret Service as a stand-in for the president, and when the president falls ill, Dave takes over the Oval Office to avoid a national scandal. Dave has to earn the nation’s trust and love as well as the First Lady.

Drew Gehling, who originated the role of Dr. Pomatter in the Tony Award-nominated musical “Waitress,” plays the titular role and President Bill Mitchell. Out actor Jamison Scott (seen here) is in the ensemble. 

Tickets are $117 for full price and can be purchased at arenastage.org.
