Four eccentric Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So, when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue… and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow – but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl and the town’s citizens and the result is love that brings them all together.

Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, The Prom expertly captures all the humor and heart of a classic musical comedy with a message that resonates with audiences now more than ever.

Announcing our 2017-2018 Season!

A Christmas Story, The Musical
December 1-3 and 8-10, 2017 at Theatre Tallahassee

New Stage Theatreworks presents the Tallahassee premiere of an exciting new dimension to the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. From the musical team of Pasek and Paul (Edges, James and the Giant Peach, Dogfight), this Tony-nominated musical will excite those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, we follow 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts – an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his dream gift. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: tongues stuck to flagpoles; Randy in his snowsuit; bullies Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. You’ll want to shoot your eye out if you miss this show!

Book by Joseph Robinette. Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and upon In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash written by Jean Shepherd. Produced with permission of Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Dalfie Entertainment.

Originally Produced on Broadway by Gerald Goehring, Roy Miller, Michael F. Mitri, Pat Flicker Aldiss, Peter Billingsley, Timothy Laczynski, Mariano Tolentino, Jr., Louise Beard, Michael Filerman, Scott Hart, Alison Eckert, Bob Bartner, Michael Jenkins, Angela Milonas, and Bradford W. Smith.

Green Day’s American Idiot
July 13 – 15 and 20 – 22, 2018 at Theatre Tallahassee
Music by Green Day. Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong. Book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer

From a BB gun to “21 Guns”, New Stage Theatreworks presents the Tallahassee premiere of the two-time Tony Award-winning electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion. Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day’s album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown. Get ready to whip out your guy-liner, leathers and pent-up angst for what Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declared “thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!”

Green Day’s American Idiot is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 421 West 54th Street, New York NY 10019 Tel,:(212) 541-4684 Fax: (212) 397-4684 www.mtishows.com
