Sacramento Theatre Company Announces 74th Season of Love, Loss & Laughter
Sacramento Theatre Company has announced its Main Series productions for the 2018-2019 Season of Love, Loss & Laughter.
The Crucible, by Pulitzer Prize winner Arthur Miller begins the season in October directed by Natasha Hause, and followed by Steel Magnolias, which will feature Sacramento favorites Janis Stevens, and Jamie Jones. For the holidays, STC will bring back its record breaking show from this past season – A Christmas Carol, starring Matt K. Miller as Ebenezer Scrooge, and Michael Jenkinson as Bob Cratchit.
January of 2019 the zany, two person whodunit musical, Murder for Two will arrive on the Pollock Stage offering up 90 minutes of comedy, and musical delights.
If you enjoyed this past season’s Macbeth, then you are sure to love this upcoming season’s, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as Casey McClellan will return to direct it. Next up in the Pollock Stage will be the world premiere of When We Were Colored by local playwright and Sacramento icon, Ginger Rutland, and directed by Stephen Eich, former Managing Director of the Geffen Playhouse, Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and Pasadena Playhouse. STC will finish the season with the hilarious musical, Disaster! Directed by STC Executive Producing Director, Michael Laun. Nicole Sterling will return to STC’s stages and be featured in the production, and Samuel Clein will provide Music Direction and lead the live orchestra.
