Five continents, 26 countries, over eight and a half million audience members and almost 30 years later, CATS is still America's most loved family musical. It is, once again, time to celebrate with the whole family the magic, the mystery, the wonder of CATS. Create a special 'memory' one more time. Lots of local Atlanta kids will appear as "Kittens".
DREAMGIRLS Starring Jennifer Holliday
August 2 - 11, 2013
Winner of six Tony awards and two Oscars, DREAMGIRLS starring Jennifer Holliday follows the story of an all-girl singing trio from Chicago in their quest for success. Based on the show biz stories of the 1960's R&B acts like The Supremes and JAmes Brown, DREAMGIRLS portrays the heartbreak and challenges of breaking new ground, both musically and socially, and how family and friendships triumph and last through all the trials.
August 20 - 25, 2013
ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid production of Roundabout Theatre Company's ANYTHING GOES. Peppering this Cole Porter first-class comedy are some of musical theater's most memorable standards including "I Get a Kick out of You", "You're the Top", and of course, "Anything Goes".
Theater of the Stars' Production of Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID
January 10-20, 2014
In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. Based on one of Hans Christian Anderson's most beloved stories, with music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, it's a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. Come fall in love with the magic for the first time-or all over again!
September 23-29, 2013
STOMP is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes - and yes, even the kitchen sink. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.
*This show will not be part of the Season Package. It will go on sale at a later date. Subscribers will be given first opportunity to purchase tickets to the show once they have gone on sale!
Season tickets are on sale now by calling Theater of the Stars at 404-252-8960 or visiting www.TheateroftheStars.com. For groups of 10 of more, call 404-881-2000.
