Tickets are on sale now for the season-opening performance of the Ocean City Pops featuring Megan Hilty. The show is at 7:30 p.m. July 2 at the Ocean City Music Pier.

Hilty is famous for her portrayal of Ivy Lynn in NBC’s musical drama “Smash.” A native of Seattle, Hilty moved to New York City after graduating from Carnegie Mellon University and quickly made her Broadway debut as Glinda in “Wicked.” She went on to perform the role in both the national tour and in Los Angeles. She followed up the series with a starring role on the NBC comedy “Sean Saves the World.”

Hilty received critical acclaim for her role of Brooke Ashton in the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of “Noises Off.” She earned nominations for a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and Drama League Award and won a Broadway.com Audience Award for Favorite Featured Actress in a Play. Her television credits include recurring roles on “Girlfriends Guide to Divorce,” “The Good Wife,” “Braindead,” and “Louie,” among many others.

The Hilty performance will be just one show in a star-studded lineup for the Ocean City Pops this summer. The schedule includes shows to appeal to a wide variety of musical tastes.
