With literally dozens of live theatres in the Boston area, people sometimes ask "How is Stoneham Theatre different?" Good question. All theatres have their own distinct missions and "personalities." We are proud of our little gem of a theatre and our "family-like" connection with our audience.
But what makes us most proud is the variety of our programming. Many suburban theatres only produce large-scale musicals or instantly familiar comedies, but we are lucky enough to be able to present an array of plays and musicals. Each year, I consider hundreds of titles and read through dozens of scripts in order to choose the shows that make up a season. It's a process that involves hours and hours of research, lots of back and forth with my marketing team, more than a bit of budget analysis and a healthy dollop of blind faith.
And what am I looking for all this time? It's hard to say. We want our seasons to have music, drama, a bit of comedy, maybe a mystery, a familiar favorite or two, possibly a new take on an old tale, and at least one complete surprise that you'd never expect. Ultimately, we want you to leave the Theatre having had a wonderful and truly unique experience. Nothing makes us happier than watching our audience rediscover an old favorite or discover a brand new one.
Throw all of that into a hat, and "Voila!'
Season 14 features a hip New York comedy, a fresh take on a classic horror story, a traditional holiday favorite, a rip-roaringly funny musical murder mystery, a fascinating brand-new play exploring the life of the first African American to star on Broadway and a glorious Broadway musical.
We can't wait to share these discoveries with you. See you at the Theatre.
