MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT (October – November)

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful showgirls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story will delight you as they search for the Holy Grail and “Always Look On The Bright Side of Life.”

Everyone’s favorite curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge returns to the ABT stage! This lavish and thrilling Broadway adaptation of Charles Dickens’ story breathes fantastic new life into the classic tale of Christmas tidings and heart-warming generosity. Bring the whole family and join Tiny Tim, Jacob Marley, and Bob Cratchit as they sing Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens’s beloved favorites including “A Jolly Good Time,” “Christmas Together,” and “Happy Christmas.” When planning your holiday season, this is a must-see!
MAME (January – February)
Mame follows the madcap adventures of everyone’s favorite aunt and her adoring nephew. Surrounded by an eccentric cast of characters, she celebrates the Roaring 20s, shamelessly spoils her “little love,” and perseveres through life with humor and style, all without missing a dance step. Jerry Herman’s Tony-nominated score is packed with musical favorites “Bosom Buddies,” “We Need a Little Christmas,” “Open a New Window,” “If He Walked Into My Life,” and more.  In the new year, spend time with the wondrous, the whimsical, the winsome – Mame
Escape to Margaritaville is a musical comedy featuring the most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, including “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, “Margaritaville,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Fins,” “Volcano,” and many more. Join Tully and the inhabitants of a small Caribbean bar as they woo the visitors and brave the hurricane season in this hilarious, heartwarming musical – the beach party you’ve been waiting for!
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards. A hilarious battle of cons that will keep you laughing, humming, and guessing to the end!
THE WIZARD OF OZ (June  – July )
The classic tale winds its way to ABT! Join Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion as they “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” “Over the Rainbow” toward the Emerald City in an attempt to get Dorothy back home to Kansas and give her companions their true hearts’ desires. Based on the 1939 film, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, this is your chance to travel to “The Merry Old Land of Oz” next summer! 
DISASTER! (August – September)
Disaster! is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the ’70s in a parody of the era’s disaster flicks. “Knock on Wood,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” “Sky High,” “I Am Woman” and “Hot Stuff” are just a few of the hits in this hilarious musical comedy with a book by SiriusXM’s On Broadway radio host Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick. With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue, and some of the most recognizable songs of the ’70s, Disaster! will have you dancing in your seat and rolling in the aisles.
