Moonlight Stage to Present BLITHE SPIRIT & THE WORLD GOES 'ROUND this Winter
Producing Artistic Director Steven Glaudini today announces Moonlight Stage Productions' 24th Winter Season at the AVO Playhouse. For the first time, the three-show season will include two musicals along with a classic comedy. "Moonlight and musicals are practically synonymous," Glaudini said. "Our AVO musicals have historically been hugely popular with audiences, so I want to deliver what our patrons look to Moonlight for and that is professionally produced musical theatre. The addition of a second musical will fulfill that promise. But we include a non-musical show to keep the season interesting and to be able to offer something for everyone."
The Winter Season kicks off January 16 with Dan Goggin's hugely popular musical comedy NUNSENSE, produced by the Moonlight for the first time. Carlos Mendoza will direct and choreograph this sweet show about the Little Sisters of Hoboken who must stage a musical fundraiser to bury their fellow nuns who were accidentally poisoned. The show runs January 16 through February 9. Next, Noël Coward's classic supernatural comedy BLITHE SPIRIT will play February 20 through March 9. Regarded as the funniest ghost story ever written, a novelist's séance goes awry when his deceased wife is determined he should have an early afterlife. Closing the season is THE WORLD GOES 'ROUND, the revue featuring the music of Kander and Ebb. These musical theatre collaborators are celebrated in a musical that features songs from Chicago, Cabaret, Kiss of the Spider Woman and more. Artistic staff for the remaining shows will be announced later.
Moonlight will offer a three-show subscription package for $72. Subscriptions go on sale November 4 and will be available through the VisTix ticket office at (760) 724-2110.
