2019/2020 Homecoming Season @ Round House Theatre
Sep 18 2019 – Jul 3 2020 all-day

Round House Theatre’s meteoric rise continues in 2019 as we get ready to reopen our dramatically transformed theatre with a full six-play lineup that’s brimming with heart, soul, and a whole lot of humor.

Our “homecoming” launches with the Off-Broadway hit comedy, School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play by Jocelyn Bioh. Next, we’ll spark joy during the holidays with a run of Simon Stephens’ Tony Award-winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. 2020 kicks off with another Tony-winning sensation—the powerful and poignant musical Spring Awakening—followed by last year’s Pulitzer Prize winner, Cost of Living by Martyna Majok, whose award-winning Ironbound made its world premiere at Round House in 2015. We’ll close the season with THE LOVE/HATE REP, a bespoke juxtaposition of two electrifying comedies in rotating repertory—Big Love, Charles Mee’s contemporary take on a rollicking classic, alongside Hatef*ck, a fiery, new romantic comedy that just premiered Off-Broadway!

Leap through the wardrobe and into a winter wonderland in this dance-based adaptation of C.S. Lewis’s treasured novel from the Chronicles of Narnia. A remount of Imagination Stage’s Helen Hayes award-winning 2012 production, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe tells the story of four siblings who journey from war-torn England to a magical land frozen in eternal winter, where the powerful lion Aslan leads them on a journey to discover their destiny. Music, modern dance, and breathtaking puppetry tell a story of love, sacrifice, and redemption.

This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple.

Metropolitan Ballet Theatre has been presenting the full-length traditional staging of The Nutcracker since 1989. Year after year audiences are enchanted by MBT’s performances which feature student and professional dancers, fabulous costumes, and beautiful scenery.

MBT has added our popular short-length version of this classic holiday tale to our 31st annual season at the Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center! The Nutcracker Suite will be performed December 7-8 & 14-15, 2019. Tickets will go on sale October 1st. (online sales will close 1 hour prior to each performance time or as tickets sell out).

The Nutcracker Suite performance on December 8th is a sensory-friendly performance; tickets are available for that performance at a separate link. Please see www.mbtdance.org for details.

Metropolitan Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker Suite is a perfect, shorter-length introduction to the theater and ballet, geared to young audiences!

Only four performance times are available for The Nutcracker Suite, which is geared to younger audiences. These will sell out quickly!

Each performance of The Nutcracker Suite will last under 45 minutes with no intermission.
