“The Play That Goes Wrong”
Oct. 2-7

Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s “tons of fun for all ages” (HuffPost) and “comic gold” (Variety) – sure to bring down the house.

“Anastasia”
Oct. 23-28

Inspired by the beloved films, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical “Anastasia” is on a journey to Greenville.

From the Tony Award®-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, this dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

“Hamilton”

Hamilton is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, as told by America now.

“Miss Saigon”
Jan. 15-20, 2019

Experience the acclaimed new production of the legendary musical Miss Saigon, from the creators of Les Misérables.

In the last days of the Vietnam War, 17-year-old Kim is forced to work in a bar run by a notorious character known as the Engineer. There she meets and falls in love with an American G.I. named Chris, but they are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. For three years, Kim goes on an epic journey of survival to find her way back to Chris, who has no idea he's fathered a son. This new production features Broadway hits including “The Heat is On in Saigon”, “The Movie in My Mind”, and “Last Night of the World.”

“A Bronx Tale”
Feb. 5-10. 2019

Broadway’s hit crowd-pleaser takes you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s – where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be.

Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Alan Menken, the songwriter of “Beauty and the Beast”, “A Bronx Tale” is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family.

“The Book of Mormon”
March 5-10, 2019

This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the “Good Word”. Now with standing room only productions in London, on Broadway and across North America, The “Book of Mormon” has truly become an international sensation. Contains explicit language.

“Come From Away”
April 16-21, 2019

The true story of the small town that welcomed the world.

The play takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

“Hello, Dolly!”
May 28-June 2, 2019

Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Betty Buckley stars in “Hello, Dolly!” – the universally acclaimed smash that NPR calls “the best show of the year”.

“This Hello, Dolly!” pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion – hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history.

“Dear Evan Hansen”
July 2-7, 2019

Winner of six 2017 Tony Awards including Best Musical and the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. “Evan Hansen” is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. “Dear Evan Hansen” is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.

 The Original Broadway Cast Recording of “Dear Evan Hansen”, debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 – the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961 – and went on to win the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
