SPRING HILL — Stage West Community Playhouse has announced 10 shows for its upcoming seasons, starting in mid July by the youth wing and continuing through mid May 2014 on the Main Stage and in the Forum.
The list includes familiar favorites, many others that are new to Nature Coast theater patrons, and a TBA (to be announced) musical that isn't a mystery to regular Times readers, since it was revealed some time ago, before the theater learned that the identity of the show was supposed to be a secret until mid March. Oops.
The shows start July 12, with the children's production of the musical version of Margery Williams' heart-warming tale of a stuffed toy rabbit made real by the love of a little boy, The Velveteen Rabbit, and conclude on the Main Stage on May 18, 2014, with the wild and raucous tale of a Lone Star State bawdy house, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
Individual ticket prices are remaining the same — $12 for the Forum, $15 for the Main Stage — except for the high-profile "Mystery Show," which is $20, but won't go on sale until season ticket sales are settled.
Season tickets for the Main Stage are $60 for four shows; the Forum Stage is $40 for four shows. Combination prices are increasing a bit, from this year's eight for $80 to eight for $90 for the four musicals on the Main Stage and four comedies in the boutique-sized Forum.
Current season ticket renewal forms will be mailed March 16. New season tickets may be purchased starting March 19 for available seats, or seat selection may be postponed until after current holders have a chance to renew.
The first 300 season ticket renewals made by April 30 are eligible for a drawing for two refunds (one to a couple). Call (352) 683-5113 after March 16 for more details.
