The Way Off Broadway Dinner Theatre, the Frederick area’s only year-round professional producing theatre, has announced its 2016 Season. Producers for the theatre are excited to bring the line-up of shows to the theatre because it will mark an expansion of Way Off Broadway’s Mainstage season. Since 2004, the theatre located in the Willowtree Plaza off of Route 40 West in Frederick has produced five Mainstage shows each season. The 2016 Season will mark the beginning of a six show season for Way Off Broadway. In addition, all six shows will be first-time productions for Way Off Broadway, never having been staged by the theatre before.
“We are extremely excited about next year’s season,” says Bill Kiska, Way Off Broadway’s Executive Producer and CEO. “We have been discussing expanding the season for some time now and the 2016 calendar looked like it was the right time to announce our new six show Mainstage season. This will allow us to bring one more fantastic Broadway show to the area each year.”
The season will set sail in January with the Cole Porter song and dance musical Anything Goes as theatre guests join Reno Sweeney and Moonface Martin onboard the S.S. American for high-seas fun and entertainment. Following the 2016 Season-opener in the spring will be the hilarious backstage farce Noises Off. From slamming doors to more drama off stage than on, Noises Off is arguably one of the funniest plays ever written.
With the introduction of the six show season, the summer will offer two musical comedies. The first, kicking off the summer, is the riotous Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, where the audience becomes part of the show as six students compete for the top prize. That will be followed by Spamalot from the comic geniuses behind Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Once all of the laughing has died down from the two summer comedies, audiences will journey Into the Woods with the modern classic that brings many of everyone’s favorite fairytale characters together for one musical adventure. Rounding out the season will be the original holiday production A Very Merry Christmas, combining songs from Christmases past and present to make for the perfect evening of holiday fun for the entire family.
“The season has something for everyone,” adds Justin M. Kiska, the theatre’s President & Managing Director. “Whether you like irreverent comedies, a good old fashioned farce, or classic musicals, you’re going to be able to find it right here at Way Off Broadway next year.”
Making Way Off Broadway a unique entertainment destination is the fact that in addition to a full stage production, tickets also include a dinner buffet, with the serving staff made up of the performers from the show.
