WaterTower Theatre Presents The Play That Goes Wrong @ Addison Theatre Centre
Feb 1 – Feb 12 all-day

We are proud to present the regional premiere of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, Broadway’s funniest smash hit! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s “TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES!” (HuffPost).

WaterTower Theatre Presents The Manic Monologues @ Addison Theatre Centre
Apr 19 – Apr 23 all-day

When creator Zack had his first psychotic break and was diagnosed with bipolar in May 2017, he was just finishing his PhD at Stanford University — and his world imploded. Would mental illness dictate his whole life? Would everything change? Zack was underwater, and his then-girlfriend Elisa (and future co-creator) had no way of knowing whether her happy, gregarious partner-in-crime would ever resurface. One of the hardest parts about those early days was the absence of relatable, lived experiences. Zack and Elisa decided to create a play based on true stories to disrupt the stigma around mental illness. It resulted in a series of vignettes they called The Manic Monologues. The play will have its regional premiere at WTT enhanced by movement & music for the first time to bring an immersive experience of this important piece to our theater community.

Outcry Theatre Presents Hamlet @ Addison Theatre Centre
Apr 28 – May 7 all-day

The most powerful, influential, and important play of all time. William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy takes on murder, madness, despair, revenge, and death.

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” King Hamlet is dead, and his brother Claudius has taken the throne. Prince Hamlet is haunted by the ghost of his father, begging him to avenge his murder. Hamlet agrees to avenge his father’s death, but is paralyzed by the grisly task ahead. Hamlet’s family tears itself apart as their country prepares for war. Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of Denmark.

WaterTower Theatre Presents Goin’ Hollywood @ Addison Theatre Centre
Jul 19 – Jul 30 all-day

WaterTower Theatre is extremely proud to present the World Premiere of a brand new musical filled with Hollywood glamour, romance, and intrigue. Have you ever wished you were born in a different time? Alice Chandler did. Alice does not feel like she belongs in the 21st Century, but she never dreamed that while at lunch with her best friend and writing partner, Garson Stein, a magical birthday wish would find them both instantly transported back in time to 1949 Hollywood. What do you do when you get your wish? Alice and Garson land smack in the golden age of movie musicals, where they land their dream job writing for L. B. Mayer at MGM and are surrounded by glittering stars of Hollywood, but they soon see that under all the glamour lies a studio system crumbling, the blacklist threatening their closest allies, and their eyes are opened to Hollywood’s darker side. WaterTower’s 27th season wraps up in style with Goin’ Hollywood, a big splashy musical, with a heart as big as MGM, and a totally original, catchy, jazz-tinged score.
