In our 2018-2019 season, your group be delighted as we bring you two award-winning musicals. First produced in 2003, Avenue Q became an instant audience-favorite. The deliciously naughty musical, with its whimsical cast of puppets, won the Tony Award for Best Musical and I know our production at the Hilberry Theatre will win your praise as well. Wayne State University has been granted the honor of being the first university allowed to bring Mamma Mia! to life. Audiences will be dancing in the aisles when this super-musical, featuring classic songs from ABBA, hits the Bonstelle Theatre from April 5 to 14, 2019.
Spectacular musicals are just the beginning. Shakespeare’s comedy, As You Like It, fills the Hilberry with charm and humor. Tony Kushner’s two-part Angels in America takes us on a fantasia through the late-80s and the AIDS crisis. Experience both parts in a single day with back-to-back performances on May 5 and 11.
In the intimacy of the Studio Theatre at the Hilberry, Nambi E. Kelley’s Xtigone is a modern re-imagining of Sophocles’ classic morality play, examining the blood-soaked gun violence and torment facing urban communities. Christopher Durang’s Tony Award winner for Best Play (2013), Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike invites you along on a hilarious family visit filled with gut-busting laughs. Suzan-Lori Parks’ Venus is an intense and devastating experience, inspired by the true story of Saartjie Baartman, a black woman from South Africa who is taken to London and becomes the “Hottentot Venus.” Venus examines the way we live and love today.
And join us for the return of Ebenezer Scrooge as our holiday spectacular, A Christmas Carol, comes alive at the Bonstelle Theatre, with 75-minutes of holiday cheer for the whole family. Our renowned dance companies will thrill you as they present the December Dance Concert and our 90th Annual Spring Dance Concert.
