Civic Theatre is bringing a diverse lineup of shows to the stage for the 2019-2020 season, according to Civic’s Executive Artistic Director Michael Lasley. Included in the schedule are family favorites, a classic piece of literature, a courtroom drama and an oversized Christmas elf.
Opening Civic’s season Oct. 4 is the funny, sunny tribute to ABBA and island living, “Mamma Mia!.” For the first time in several years, Civic brings a holiday-themed show to the stage in December with “Elf The Musical.” Civic’s play selections are William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, “Much Ado About Nothing” in February 2020, and Aaron Sorkin’s stage adaptation of “A Few Good Men,” presented in the Studio Theater in March 2020. Concluding the main stage offerings in April 2020 is Roald Dahl’s “Matilda The Musical.”
“We are all so excited to bring this lineup of shows to the Civic stage,” Lasley said. “We feel it is a terrific mix of contemporary and classic titles. There is something for everyone.”
Civic’s Children’s Theatre selections during the 2019-2020 season are sure to be a hit. Back for more antics in February 2020 is Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat In the Hat.” In summer 2020, winter is coming with Disney’s “Frozen Jr.” and Civic’s Young Artists Program brings “Saturday Night Fever” to the stage, with original Broadway choreography by Anne Beck.
Inclusive performances will be available for several of the productions.
With this announcement also comes the launch of Civic’s new website. Visit civictheatre.org to purchase tickets, enroll for classes, see photos of productions, to donate and more.
