5th Avenue Theatre Company Announces 2011 Season

My pal Eddie Harbert sends along this press release announcing next year's season of shows for 5th Avenue Theatre Company - and an impressive line-up it is:
The City of Huntington Foundation and 5th Avenue Theatre Company are proud to announce their 2011 Season.

The first show of the season will be Titanic: The Musical May 6-8 and 12-15. Come journey back in time and take a ride on the Titanic - City of the Seas. The musical is not based on the film version of the story but rather is based on actual events that transpired between the passengers on that fated voyage. Auditions will take place in March, and the show is being directed by Eddie Harbert.

Noises Off will be the second show of the season September 9-11 and 16-18. This non-musical tells the story of a theatre troupe as they attempt to put on the premiere of a broadway show. It is the hilarious telling of the backstage trials and travails of the group as they go through the ordeal of putting up the show. This hysterical farce will be directed by Stephanie Sands in her directorial debut.

The last show of the season will be the Christmas favorite White Christmas which is being brought back by popular demand. Follow Bob, Phil, Betty and Judy as they travel to Vermont to help the general "put up a show" in the barn in order to save the inn. The show is packed full of favorites like "Sisters," "Blue Skies," "I Love a Piano" and, of course, "White Christmas." Dates for the show are December 2-4 and 8-11 and is also being directed by Eddie Harbert.

Season tickets will once again be available for all three shows with a 20% discount off of regular ticket prices. Season tickets will go on sale December 1 and make wonderful Christmas gifts for friends and family.

For more information or to purchase your season tickets, please call Maxine Loudermilk at 304-696-5522.
