cover logoTwin City Stage is pleased to announce its 82nd Season of live theatre productions.  Between September 2016 and June 2017, the theatre company will offer a wide array of shows, including re-imagined classics, exciting premieres and long-loved musical treasures.  The season’s theme is “Discover!” because each play or musical involves some type of discovery – love, truth, clues, meaning, destiny.

The 82nd Season will begin with Little Women: The Musical, the captivating story of four sisters growing up during the Civil War, with book by Allan Knee, music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein; based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott (September 23-25 & 29-October 2, 2016).  In October, Twin City Stage will present the world premiere of Shades of Valor, a compelling new drama by award-winning playwright Karen L. Lewis, as part of the AACT NewPlayFest (October 28-30, 2016).  Jane Austen’s romantic comedy, Sense and Sensibility, refreshingly adapted by Jon Jory, will follow (November 11-13 & 17-20, 2016).   Next, the theatre company will embrace its fairly new holiday tradition by offering the 3rd annual production of Macy’s Yes, Virginia: The Musical, with music by Wesley Whatley and book & lyrics by William Schermerhorn (December 16-18, 2016).  The inspiring story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan, William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker, will be next (February 3-5 & 9-12, 2017).  Spring will usher in bright colors, when Twin City Stage presents Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber (March 31-April 2 & April 6-9, 2017).  The season will conclude with a mischievous comedy thriller, Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, by Ken Ludwig (June 2-4 & 8-11, 2017).

Most of the productions will be held at the Arts Council Theatre, with the exception of Shades of Valor and Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, which will be performed at the Hanesbrands Theatre.

Season memberships will go on sale with the opening of The Wizard of Oz on Friday, April 15, and be available for purchase through Sunday, October 2, 2016.  Memberships are $110 and include five flexible admission tickets, good for any of the shows the theatre offers during the 2016-17 season, along with additional benefits, such as discounted single tickets, early reservations and discounts on acting classes.  Single tickets, which will not be offered until the season begins, will be $25, plus a $2 Arts Council Facility/Handling fee.
