Roughly a century since their inception, musicals remain a favorite stage entertainment. Although Hugh Jackman’s train only goes as far as River City, you still have plenty of opportunities to catch a musical or three in Rose City and other parts of Oregon.

In Ashland, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is offering Once on This Island (April 12 thru Oct. 30), and Shedd Theatrical in Eugene is mounting the 1924 Fred Astaire hit Lady Be Good (July 8-17)

You can catch Hamilton presented by Broadway in Portland at Keller Auditorium (now through May 1). Pretty Woman is next, then short runs of Cats and Hadestown.

At Portland’5, you have a couple more days to see Tinderella (which has its last performance on April 17), produced by Stumptown Stages; Ring of Fire is next on their calendar (May 27 through June 18).

Tigard’s Broadway Rose, meanwhile, presents Don’t Hug Me, a rom-com musical about a karaoke salesman (now through May 8).

For some of the best in high school theater, get tickets for Newsies, presented by the award-winning theater program at Sam Barlow High School in Gresham (May 5-8).

And for the chivalrous at heart, there’s Camelot, which opens April 29 (and runs through June 12) at Lakewood Theater in Lake Oswego.

Who could ask for anything more?
