The Grand Rapids Theatre was founded in 1925. It has been both the anchor of and the gateway to theatre in Grand Rapids for more than 85 years. That tradition continues in full force with the announcement of the 2014/2015 Season Line-up.
“Each season, we strive for a blend of family favorites, theatre classics and new to our stage productions,” stated Community Relations Director Nancy Brozek. “We are intentional in our selections: as individual pieces and as a whole, when making up the full season. For many this will be a first-brush with timeless works by Agatha Christie (Mousetrap) or Rodgers and Hammerstein (South Pacific). We want to present pieces that excite and challenge our actors and our audience”.
Bruce Tinker, Executive and Artistic Director noted, “The Boatwright is making a World Debut on our stage this fall. This original piece is an AACTFEST award winner and the fact that the Civic has been selected to host the premier is a testament to our theatre and our community’s support of Live Theatre. We are excited to include heartwarming and timely Mary Poppins and a new, updated version of Avenue Q in our line-up as well.”
The Theatre offers a number of season ticketing packages that provide flex ticketing and large discounts and other perks for buyers. These packages are on sale now. Show individual tickets will be on sale in August.
The 2014-2015 season is The Boatwright/Drama, Mary Poppins/Musical, The Mousetrap/Murder Mystery, South Pacific/Musical Comedy Drama, Avenue Q, Musical Comedy, FootLoose, Musical, a little Princess, Children Musical, and Alexander…Very Bad Day, Children’s show.
