Theatre Arlington Announces Big Season Changes
As the brand-new Interim Executive Producer of Theatre Arlington I am thrilled to announce our brand-new 2018-2019 season. We had to make some changes in our season due to national tours and licensing restrictions. One show change affects the balance of the season as a whole and gave me the opportunity to make new artistic choices.
I have been active with Theatre Arlington since my first show in 1981 and I am excited to bring back some of my favorite shows: Aaron Sorkin's A Few Good Men and Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs. I am also pleased to announce that B. J. Cleveland will be return to Theatre Arlington to star in the first show he did with us - They're Playing Our Song.
Along with the new changes I wanted to bring a new work to the theatre and fell in love with Sarah Ruhl's quirky romantic comedy Dead Man's Cell Phone.
Our Youth Productions of The Adventures of Nate the Great and Junie B Jones The Musical JR will be a big hit and we will also add The Magical City of Oz which will have adult actors and participation by the children in the audience.
I know that you will love our brand-new sizzling season and I look forward to seeing you at all of the shows at Theatre Arlington. ~ Steven D. Morris
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL
SEPTEMBER 14 - OCTOBER 7, 2018
This hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy - giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she? Appropriate for audiences ages 13 and up.
