The Board of Governors of Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré announced its 2014–15 season, consisting of five productions – a vibrant mix of drama, comedy and musicals. The season opens on September 5, 2014 and runs through June 6, 2015, and will once again employ all local actors and crews.
“Le Petit presents an eclectic season with something for everyone,” said Le Petit Theatre Executive Director Cassie Steck Worley.“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a hilarious new comedy straight from Broadway. Peter and the Starcatcher is a prequel to Peter Pan and is a must-see for kids and adults. We are proud to present the rock opera classic, Jesus Christ Superstar and the Pulitzer Prize winning play, Dinner with Friends, and we end our season with a Stephen Sondheim musical, Merrily We Roll Along,” Worley said.
2014-15 season subscriptions are on sale to the public via the theatre’s website (www.lepetittheatre.com) and the box office. During the regular season, individual tickets for each production will go on sale one month prior to opening night. The box office is open during the hours of 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays (Closed Sundays and Mondays). For questions, call the box office at 504-522-2081 or email: email@example.com.
