STONEHAM THEATRE ANNOUNCES AN ANNIVERSARY SEASON

Stoneham Theatre has a lot to celebrate as they announce their 15th season. Selecting the slate of shows, however, proved to be challenging.  “Choosing an anniversary season is tough,” Producing Artistic Director Weylin Symes shared.  “There is a lot of pressure to get it right. But, in the end, I found I just wanted to choose another season of plays and musicals that represents the kind of work that we love to do: a mix of the familiar and the new, the entertaining and the thought-provoking, and one completely unexpected surprise.”

There is something for everyone in Season 15, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt to the Boston premiere of That Hopey Changey Thing to the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.  Season 15 memberships are available now.  To learn more, call the Stoneham Theatre Box Office at (781) 279-2200, or visit www.stonehamtheatre.org
