On Friday our Managing Artistic Director, Oliver, announced our exciting 21st season full of theatre history landmarks!
The season begins with Disney’s third venture into stage adaptations, The Little Mermaid, running September 28th to October 7th of this year. We continue with a Sioux Falls holiday staple, our third annual larger-than-life production of A Christmas Carol this December 15th to 23rd. Our 21st season proceeds with another new tradition, our second annual production of The Premiere Premieres. This new play development initiative focuses on collaboration among local artists resulting in a completely local production that runs February 15th to 18th of 2024. The fourth mainstage show of the season is the first collaboration of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma!, which performs April 11th to 20th, 2024. Lastly, our compelling 21st season closes with an electrifying musical that broke new ground in musical theatre by defining the genre of “rock musical”. Reflecting the creators’ observations of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the late 1960s, our Season 21 finale Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical runs from June 13th to to the 22nd of 2024.
Season 21 mainstage productions will perform at the historic Orpheum Theater of downtown Sioux Falls. In the new season we will also introduce a new offering, The Passion Projects, a piece of expanded programming we define as: micro-budget productions that feed our community’s appetite for straight plays, edgy storylines, small ensembles, and experimental projects. The venture’s inaugural show is written by one of the great American playwrights, Tennessee Williams. The Glass Menagerie will run from March 15th to 17th away from our home venue of the Orpheum at a location to be announced and although tickets will be sold separately from season subscriptions, Season 21 subscribers will receive a discount if they are interested in attending this performance.
