On February 21, many volunteers of the Kalamazoo Civic Theatre gathered at the Civic Auditorium in anticipation of what shows would be put on during their 89th season. This Civic’s season consists of 16 productions that are setup to accommodate a variety of interests.

The three youth shows the Civic will be performing are A Midsummer’s Night Dream by William Shakespeare, Seussical the Musical by Stephen Flaherty and Harriet the Spy based off the book by Louise Fitzhugh.

Some of the adult shows the theatre will also put on are Young Frankenstein, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Baskerville-A Sherlock Holmes Mystery based of the novel by Arthur Doyle, Rock of Ages by Chris D’Arienzo, Calendar Girls by Tim Firth, Red by John Logan, Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods by Tammy Ryan and Billy Elliot by Stephen Daldry.  

Finally, the theatre also showcases plays specifically for the seniors of the community like Sounds of the Sixties and The Good Doctor by Neil Simon, among other things.

I’m excited because in many ways it breaks away from previous seasons at the Civic, by delivering newer work with bold programming choices intended to inspire and challenge our audience and volunteers,” said executive director Stephen Carve in an interview with Lyb Goff from Mlive.

Subscriptions for the 2017-2018 season begin on Monday, May 1.
