Tickets to Peninsula Players Theatre’s 81st season are now on sale. America’s oldest professional resident summer theater has tickets available for a variety of engaging shows – including a gentle new comedy, a classic whodunit, a lively pop-musical, an engrossing new drama and a fast-paced comic thriller.
Peninsula Players opens its 81st season on June 14 with the Wisconsin première of Chapatti, a gentle and funny late-in-life romance by Christian O’Reilly running through July 3. Agatha Christie’s brilliant murder mystery The Hollow will keep audiences guessing July 6 – 24. Taking the stage July 27 – Aug. 14 is the lively, uplifting pop-rock musical that takes it all off, The Full Monty, with book by Terrence McNally and music and lyrics by David Yazbek. Up next from Aug. 17 – Sept. 4 is the Midwest première of Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones in which a children’s book stirs passions in 1959 Montgomery. The rollicking and riotous spy thriller The 39 Steps by Patrick Barlow will mesmerize and entertain audiences Sept. 7 – Oct. 16 when four actors portray all 150 characters of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 adventure film, The 39 Steps.
