Theatre Wesleyan 2017/18 Mainstage Season

Blithe Spirit by Noël Coward (Sept. 21-Oct. 1, 2017)
Directed By Connie Whitt-Lambert

Performances will be held at the Thad Smotherman Theatre, 1205 Binkley Street, Fort Worth, TX 76105

The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium", one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles' current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, "passes over", joins Elvira and the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Publishing Company, Inc.


Spring Awakening (Nov. 3-12, 2017)
Music by Duncan Sheik
Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater
Directed by Emily Cherry
Musical Direction by Susan Ishii
Choreographed by Stephanie Locker-Hall

Performances will be held at the Thad Smotherman Theatre, 1205 Binkley Street, Fort Worth, TX 76105

The winner of eight Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, told by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater through what Entertainment Weekly called, "the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade," Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. The landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll that is exhilarating audiences across the nation like no other musical in years.

Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.


Important Hats of the Twentieth Century by Nick Jones (Feb. 15-25, 2018)
Directed By Bryan Stevenson

Performances will be held at the Thad Smotherman Theatre, 1205 Binkley Street, Fort Worth, TX 76105

Sam Greevy is the toast of 1920s women's apparel until the maverick fashion designer Sam Roms springs his radical creations on the world. The Sweatshirt, The Track Suit, Skater Pants: the clothes he comes up with are as from another dimension, and maybe they are. As Greevy tries to adapt to rapidly changing fashions, a parallel drama unfolds in Albany, circa 1998: a teenager stoner keeps losing articles of clothing, and a man keeps bursting out of his closet and taking them.

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Publishing Company, Inc.


The 64th Annual Spring Musical: OKLAHOMA! (April 19-22, 2018)
Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Directed by Jeanne Everton

Performances will be held at the W. E. Scott Theatre, 1300 Gendy Street, Fort Worth, TX 76107

Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

Presented by special arrangement with The Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization.
