Virginia Repertory Theatre Announces the 2019/2020 Season

The new season begins with the co-World Premiere of Tuck Everlasting. This musical has been adapted for young audiences from the 2016 Broadway production and is based on the beloved children’s book. Join us at our theatre at Willow Lawn from October 18 through December 1 to see this popular children’s novel by Natalie Babbitt spring to life and inspire magical adventures for the child in all of us.

Next up is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella at the November Theatre. Share the magic with every generation of your family as Cinderella will serve as the holiday show for both our Children’s and Signature seasons and will run November 29, 2019 through January 5, 2020.

The new year will bring us Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, developed here at Virginia Rep, and returning to Willow Lawn from January 24 through March 1. In this stirring drama with music, we share in the joys, sorrows, and challenges Harriet Tubman faced while courageously freeing herself, and hundreds of others, from the bonds of slavery.

In the spring, Academy Award-winner Julianne Moore’s heartwarming book Freckleface Strawberry will come to life on stage. It tells the tale of a young girl learning to love the skin she’s in. Adapted for the stage by Gary Kupper and Rose Caiola, this charming musical, running April 24 through May 24, teaches children that their differences are what make them special.

Finally, the imagination of Mo Willems returns next summer with Elephant and Piggie’s “We are in a Play!”, running July 10 through August 16. With music by Deborah Wicks La Pluma, Mo Willems will leave audiences doing the “Flippy Floopy Floory” dance in this rollicking vaudevillian romp, perfect for introducing young people to putting on a play.
