TheatreSquared Announces 2014-2015 Season Lineup
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS - April 18, 2014 - TheatreSquared Artistic Director Robert Ford and Executive Director Martin Miller announced today the 2014/15 lineup of professional theatre in Northwest Arkansas, TheatreSquared Season 9. The new season launches in August 2014 with "the funniest show in the western world" (The Daily Mail) One Man, Two Guvnors, and continues with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Proof, the theatrical adventure Around the World in 80 Days, the world premiere of Look Away, and the comic drama Superior Donuts. Subscription packages are on sale now via the Walton Arts Center Box Office at (479) 571-2785 or online at theatre2.org/subscribe.
"We're thrilled to unveil our 2014/15 lineup of professional theatre in Northwest Arkansas," said Ford. "From high comedy to provocative drama - from a race around the world to a dark night in Wilson, Arkansas - this is a blockbuster season."
"Our best seats are on sale now to subscribers," said Miller. "After a 40% leap in our attendance this year, with more sold-out performances than ever, subscribing is the best way to guarantee great seats at each of these shows. We've got new packages and add-ons to make it easier than ever to enjoy a night out - with the option to reserve parking, lunch, and even kids' club passes for parents to bring young ones along for classes during the show."
The season begins in August with One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean, a new adaptation of Goldoni's The Servant of Two Masters that won widespread acclaim in London, on Broadway and in its recent international tour. Francis Henschall is an amiable fellow with a love of good food - and to fund his favorite pastime he's taken on two full-time jobs. His increasingly desperate attempts to keep his two "guvnors" straight - with a live skiffle band, mistaken identities and plenty of physical comedy in the mix - make One Man, Two Guvnors a glorious celebration of the power of live theatre to make you laugh out loud. August 28 - September 21, 2014. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
Subscribers may also add specially discounted passes to the 2015 Arkansas New Play Festival, the state's flagship celebration of bold new plays, in June 2015. This year, the festival will include a fully staged premiere, three staged readings of brand new work, and a host of exclusive behind-the-scenes events over two weekends from June 18-28, 2015.
