The Chattanooga Theatre Centre will offer a series of audience-favorite musicals, whodunits and comedies to celebrate its 90th anniversary during the 2013-2014 season.
Among the highlights are the season-opening musical “The Secret Garden” in September, the Tony Award-nominated musical (with Chattanooga roots) “Pump Boys and Dinettes,” the much-remembered (and now back on Broadway) “Pippin,” the Neil Simon comedy “The Odd Couple” (with male and female casts) and the Southern classic “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
Also on the schedule are the William Shakespeare romantic comedy “Taming of the Shrew,” the Noel Coward comedy classic “Blithe Spirit,” the Agatha Christie mystery “And Then There Were None” (formerly at the CTC as “Ten Little Indians”) and a holiday family musical whose rights the theater is awaiting approval.
The modern David Sedaris double-header, “The Santaland Diaries” and “Season Greetings,” returns at Christmas.
The community theater will kick off its next decade with a stage production of the recent Academy Award-nominated “Les Miserables” in July 2014.
Subscription renewals go on sale in May, while subscriptions for the general public may be made in June, and single tickets to all shows will be available in August.
