BILL W. AND DR. BOB
The new season kicks off Oct. 11- Nov. 11, with the heartwarming, humorous and inspirational BILL W. AND DR. BOB, an internationally acclaimed play about the 2 alcoholics who teamed up to create Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) – the self-help organization that today spans 180 countries, with approximately two million members.
Hailed by The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Variety, and others, the play is authored by Samuel Shem and Janet Surrey.
Running Nov. 30 - Dec. 30, MADELINE’S CHRISTMAS works its musical magic in a vine-covered Paris boarding school, where twelve little girls get the flu just before Christmas, and may not make it home. But, one of them, Madeline, meets a rug merchant with magic carpets, and their adventure begins.
MADELINE’S CHRISTMAS’ book and lyrics are by Jennifer Kirkeby and the music is by Shirley Mier – all based on the book by Ludwig Bemelmans.
Running Feb. 15 – Mar. 17, the new musical, FREAKY FRIDAY, based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films (and developed by Disney Theatrical Productions), features a book by Bridget Carpenter (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS and PARENTHOOD) and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey - the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of NEXT TO NORMAL and IF/THEN.
The show will keep audiences laughing as they watch what unfolds when an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies and they have just one day to put things right again.
Running Mar. 29 – Apr. 21, TUCK EVERLANSTING is considered one of the classics of modern children’s literature. When Young Winnie Foster ventures from her routine one morning, she suddenly finds herself faced with monumental dilemmas: What if she could live forever? What if she were asked to keep a shocking secret?
The script is by Mark J. Frattaroli, based on the book “Tuck Everlasting” by Natalie Babbitt. This show is recommended for ages 9 and up.
Running May 9 – June 9, PIPPIN is another one of Stephen Schwartz’s (WICKED) iconic musical masterpieces.
