The lineup includes a new musical, two beloved classics, and two fun and fresh modern musical theatre gems.
ISSAQUAH, WASH. – Village Theatre announce the 2019-2020 Season with a collection of joyful shows. The lineup includes: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a fast-paced, irreverent hit about a group of eclectic middle schoolers vying for the title of spelling bee champ; Guys & Dolls, an iconic crowd- pleaser filled with some of the greatest musical theatre songs ever written; She Loves Me, a musical romance that inspired the hit film You’ve Got Mail; Hansel & Gretl & Heidi & Günter, a modern-day sequel to the classic folktale, developed at Village Theatre during The 2018 Festival of New Musicals; and The Wedding Singer, a totally radical musical celebration of the 80s based on the hit film of the same name.
We are thrilled with the show selection for this upcoming Season.
The 2019-2020 Season runs September 12, 2019 to June 28, 2020 in Issaquah and October 25, 2019 to July 26, 2020 in Everett. “We are thrilled with the show selection for this upcoming Season,”saidartistic director Jerry Dixon. “It’s a collection of some of the most joyful shows ever written. There is something for everyone with this Season. We have the nostalgic classics, a new musical that was developed at our theatre, as well as some fun gems from the modern musical theatre canon that are rarely seen on professional regional theatre stages. We truly think this is a Season our audiences will be excited to see.”
The 2019-2020 Season also marks Village Theatre’s 40th Anniversary. This is an exciting milestone for the organization, which has grown to be a regionally recognized and nationally influential center of excellence in theatre. “The past 40 years have been a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone at our theatre,” said executive producer Robb Hunt.
“Over that time, we have seen this organization grow into one of the largest subscription-based theatres in the Pacific Northwest, with programs in two cities and four buildings. Not only has our Mainstage production value grown immensely, but our comprehensive youth education and robust new works programs are also seeing continued success and development. As we began conversations to select this season of shows, we really listened to what our audiences wanted, and are looking forward to celebrating this anniversary with an exciting Season that our patrons will love.
…some of the most joyful shows ever written. There is something for everyone…
