DENTON, TX – Coming off of a recording breaking sold-out run of The Addams Family in October, Music Theatre of Denton announced their 2016 Season of Dreams at their annual meeting at the Denton Woman’s Club Sunday. Into the Woods is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. Performance dates are March 4-13. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. Hannah’s Off the Square is the proud sponsor of MTD’s first production of the 2016 Season Into the Woods. In the Heights is a musical with music and lyrics by Lin Manuel Miranda, and a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes.
Performance dates are May 6-15.
In The Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood -a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. Shrek The Musical is a musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire
Performance dates are Oct 21-30.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek … “ And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand … and his name is Shrek. All productions will be at the historic Campus Theatre located at 214 West Hickory Street in downtown Denton, TX.
