Pioneer Theatre Company announces its 2018-2019 season
(KUTV) -- Pioneer Theatre Company announced its 2018-2019 season, which opens the regional premiere of Oslo by J. T. Rogers, winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play and the 2017 Obie Award for Best New American Theatre Work.
In a prepared statement, the theatre announced in October that the Stephen Sondheim musical thriller Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street will take the stage.
It is to be followed by a sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley written by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon.
In January 2019, the theatre will present The Lion in Winter, a fascinating look at the battle of wits between two legendary figures, Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine.
Following that will be the musical love story Once, which won the 2012 Tony for Best Musical and Best Book, and the 2013 Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album.
Sweat, the powerful and emotional 2017 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, written by Lynn Nottage, will follow, and the season will conclude with everyone's favorite nostalgic throwback to the 1950s, the musical Grease, the press release said.
"What most excited me about this season is that it brings a little bit of everything to our audiences," said Artistic Director Karen Azenberg in a press release. "There are classic plays and musicals like Grease, The Lion in Winter and Sweeney Todd, recent Broadway award winners like Oslo, Sweat and Once, along with something really new and yet familiar, Miss Bennett: Christmas at Pemberley, which is sure to become a new holiday favorite."
The theatre is continuing to present its Concert Production, as well as its popular Play-by-Play new play reading series. Titles for both will be announced at a later date, a press release said.
Single ticket prices for musicals range from $44-$66, and prices for non-musicals range from $30-$45. Packages and passes range in price from $150 to $325 and include the best seats and discounts, as well as the convenience of exchange privileges and other benefits.
Current season ticket holders may expect to receive their renewal notices in April and will have the opportunity to reserve their current seats as long as they do so by Friday, June 29.
New subscriber orders are to be filled in the order in which they are received.
