Florida Repertory Theatre Announces its 2016-2017 Season Line-Up

Florida Repertory Theatre, recently called "one of the top regional troupes in the United States" by The Wall Street Journal, has revealed its 2016-2017 Season in the Historic Arcade Theatre and ArtStage Studio Theatre. Running October 7th to May 14th, the season includes Agatha Christie's most famous whodunit, a Tony-winning musical, multiple comedies, an American classic, a world-premiere, and more!

"Florida Rep prides itself on producing a wide variety, and we are especially excited about that variety next season," said Producing Artistic Director, Robert Cacioppo. "There are comedies for those who want to laugh, dramas for those who want to be challenged, and for the first time in a few years, a musical on the Arcade Theatre stage. This line-up will also showcase the variety in our ensemble of actors, directors, and designers, with so many stories to bring to life through the year. This is not a season to be missed."

Florida Rep's 19th Season is once again full of laughter and compelling storytelling, and it features a wide variety of comedies, dramas, new works, and a musical across two unique venues. Subscriptions are on sale now and start as low as $150 (for 6 plays), and offer the best seats and biggest savings (up to 43% off). Packages are available that work for any budget or any schedule. New and renewing subscribers must call before May 30th in order to secure their seats. Priced at $52/$45 and $32/$25 for previews, single tickets for the new season will go on sale July 14th.
