Ragtime
17-18 Asolo Repertory Theatre
Ragtime
Book by TERRANCE MCNALLY | Music by STEPHEN FLAHERTY | Lyrics by LYNN AHRENS | Based on the novel “Ragtime” by E.L DOCTOROW Directed by PETER ROTHSTEIN

It’s the dawn of the 20th Century in New York... a time of enormous change, of new ideas, and everyone is moving to the music of Ragtime. This epic Tony Award winning musical depicts the struggles, successes, hopes and dreams of a white, upper-middle class family in New Rochelle, an African-American musician and his girlfriend in Harlem, and a Jewish immigrant and his daughter on the Lower East Side. Interwoven with their stories are the newsmakers of the era including Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, J.P. Morgan and Henry Ford. Minneapolis director Peter Rothstein has scaled down this originally massive musical into an intimate, elegant production that resonates in today’s world to the very heart.

Asolo Repertory Theatre proudly announces its final production of its 2017-18 season, the world premiere of JUNGLE BOOK, a boldly re-imagined family friendly stage adaptation of Nobel Prize-winner Rudyard Kipling's classic novel. From Mowgli the Man-cub, Baloo the bear, Kaa the Snake, and more, JUNGLE BOOK will bring the characters audiences know and love to life while also introducing some of the other colorful inhabitants of Kipling's books, and of today’s urban jungles. It will be presented by Kidoons and WYRD Productions in association with The 20K Collective, produced by Jeff Lord, co- created and co-directed by Craig Francis and Rick Miller.


What the Butler Saw
18-19 Dog Days Theatre
What the Butler Saw
By JOE ORTON | Directed by GREG LEAMING
Previews July 10 & 11

Wild, risqué, and ferociously funny, Joe Orton’s classic farce takes aim at everything from sex to psychiatry. In an exclusive, private mental health clinic, Dr. Prentice is attempting to seduce his prospective secretary when his wife walks in, interrupting his sordid intentions and kicking off a maniacal tour de force involving a state inspector, bellboys, slamming doors, and, above all, Orton’s wicked wit and breakneck dialogue.


The Turn of the Screw
18-19 Dog Days Theatre
The Turn of the Screw
Adapted by JEFFREY HATCHER | From the story by HENRY JAMES | Directed by CHRIS CLAVELLI
Previews August 7 & 8

1840. An era charmed by superstition, madness, and the writings of Sigmund Freud led Henry James to write one of the most chilling ghost stories of all time. A young governess arrives at a seemingly idyllic country house to look after two orphaned children. But shortly after her arrival, she realizes they’re not alone. She risks everything to keep the children safe, until she begins to question her sanity, and the children’s innocence.
