Sacramento Theatre Company Announces 75th Season of Decades, divas & diamonds
Sacramento Theatre Company has announced its Main Series productions for the 2019-2020 75th Anniversary Season of Decades, Divas & Diamonds.
An original adaptation of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, by local Sacramento author, Carissa Meagher will begin our season in October, and will include a full month of acitiivites all surrounding and celebrating Jane Austen. Next up on our Pollock Stage will be the American comedy thriller, Deathtrap originally made famous by Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve in the film version. Our production will star two STC favorites, Casey McClellan (Mothers and Sons, Disaster!), and Natasha Hause (The Diary of Anne Frank, Steel Magnolias). For the holidays, STC will bring back their popular adaptation of A Christmas Carol, starring Matt K. Miller as Ebenezer Scrooge, and Michael Jenkinson as Bob Cratchit.
January of 2019 we will be getting a little bit country with the ensemble musical, Pump Boy and Dinettes that will feature Sam C. Jones (A Christmas Carol, Disaster!), as well as several other talented performers who will not only sing, and dance, but play various instruments.
If you enjoyed this past season’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, then you are sure to love this upcoming season’s, Hamlet, as Casey McClellan will return to co-direct it alongside STC newcomer Greg Foro, and will star Ian Hopps (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) in the role of Hamlet. Next up in the Pollock Stage will be the American comedy-drama based on the 1967 film, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. STC is pleased to welcome back Janis Stevens (Kate, Steel Magnolias) in the role of Christina, which was originally made famous by Katharine Hepburn. STC will finish the season with the romantic musical, A Little Night Music by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler. The show will be directed and choreographed by STC favorite, Michael Jenkinson (A Christmas Carol, Man of La Mancha).
Six-show subscription packages (excludes A Christmas Carol) will go on sale July 1. Single tickets go on sale September 3. Subscribers will have the opportunity to purchase advance tickets to A Christmas Carol before tickets go on sale to the general public.
