How to find a musical performance, unconstrained by location or quality?

I want to see a live performance of Elton John & Tim Rice's Aida. Flexible on performance quality and location. How to find this?

I've been listening to the soundtrack for ~15 years but have never seen a performance. I'm fond of the soundtrack and have a growing itch to be able to fill in dialogue, actors' gestures, sets, etc. Don't really enjoy recorded musicals, looking for a live performance. It's doesn't need to be professional - a college or even high school performance would be fine.

To further relax constraints, I live in Boston but would consider traveling - If U of Montana's theater club is performing, I could find a couple of other fun things to do in Montana and make a trip out of it. Probably wouldn't build a trip to Australia around it, but somewhere in the U.S. or Canada, sure.

So...how do I find this? Is there a theater version of Songkick? Some search term I'm missing? The internet has thus far just turned up past performances than were "upcoming" when the article was published. Looks like I can save searches on some ticket-selling sites, but wondering if there's anything better.

Music Theatre International controls the rights to this show. At this link you can click on the "upcoming" menu item and search for a convenient performance.

I googled "Aida musical 2017" and found the following:

Vista, CA
Salt Lake, UT
Fort Lauderdale, FL
Glibert, AZ
Glenview, IL (high school theater)

There were others. That was just the first page. Best of luck!
