DISENCHANTED! and More Set for Halloran Centre's New Theatre Series
Today, the Halloran Centre at the Orpheum announced a new theatre series as part of the On Stage at the Halloran Centre programming. Three shows comprise this inaugural series that will run December through March 2018. Tickets are on sale now, and patrons can secure all three shows for the price of two at just $90.
"I always envisioned that the On Stage series would not only feature the best of music but would showcase talent from different areas of the arts," said Ron Jewell, Vice President of Halloran Centre Operations. "The addition of this series is a positive step toward making that vision a reality with three great shows I know theatregoers will love."
The series opens in December with Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie starring Jamie Farr. Farr is known for his memorable role as Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger in the 70s TV hit M*A*S*H. In February, the one-man show Say Goodnight Gracie starring Alan Safier follows the life of the late legendary entertainer, George Burns. The series concludes in March with Disenchanted! The Hilarious Hit Musical. This not-for-the-kiddies musical comedy features the original storybook princesses you think you know.
Single show ticket prices are $45, but patrons can purchase all three shows for the price of two at $90. Series packages are available for purchase through the Orpheum box office.

DISENCHANTED! The Hilarious Hit Musical

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs 'em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that's anything but Grimm.

These royal renegades tossed off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to you - and what you thought about princesses will never be the same.
