Theatre Burlington has announced the lineup for its upcoming season.
As it winds down its first full schedule since the pandemic with Remember Maggy? in April, and following the critically acclaimed production of
Educating Rita last fall, Theatre Burlington is looking ahead with three new shows planned for 2023-2024.
The season will kick off with Lunenburg, the latest in Canadian playwright Norm Foster’s Maritime series. An American widow and her best friend travel to the East Coast to visit a house she has inherited from her recently deceased husband. A clash of cultures, a secret revealed and an unexpected romance will sweep audience members away in this heartwarming comedy.
The annual children’s show will feature Jack and the Beanstalk, a modern twist on the familiar tale, written by local playwright Vic Hyde. This hour-long show is the perfect way to introduce youngsters to the magic of live theatre.
The winter show is the searing comedy-drama Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, written by Edward Albee. In this unflinching look at the crumbling marriage of George and Martha, a younger couple is invited over for a night of “fun and games” that turns deadly serious.
The season will close with The Sweet Delilah Swim Club. The story of five women who meet up once a year to renew friendships, discuss life and love, and generally meddle in each other’s business. This hilarious comedy is written by the people behind TV’s The Golden Girls.
Tickets can be ordered at TheatreBurlington.on.ca or by calling the box office at 905-639-7700.
All main stage shows are $25, the kids' show is $12. Season tickets are also available that include admission for all three main stage shows for $70 ($65 for seniors). As an added bonus, season ticket holders can reserve the same seat for all three.
Starting in the 2023-24 season, main stage shows will also include a Saturday matinee (dates to follow).
