Big Fish

By Andrew Lippa and John August
On the Steve Lloyd Stage
Directed by Candice Dickinson

Weekends May 19 – June 11

What tall tales will we tell to be the hero of our own stories? 

When Will finds out his father is dying of cancer, he is on a mission to find the truth behind the tall tales his father has always told him. Audiences will be in awe as they travel back and forth from Will and Edward’s stark reality to the beautiful and larger than life fantasies of Edward Bloom’s past. This charming, warm hug of a musical features Southern-fried music from Andrew Lippa and is based on the 1998 novel by Daniel Wallace that also inspired the 2003 big-screen adaptation directed by Tim Burton. A musical for dreamers, this show has sweeping melodies, gorgeous dance numbers, and celebrates the imagination, culminating in a thrilling theatrical experience. Full of giants, witches, mermaids, and, of course, an exceptionally large fish, Big Fish is about what’s real and what’s fantastic, what’s true and what’s not true, what’s partially true and how, in the end, it’s all true.

Suitable for all audiences.

Calendar Girls

By Tim Firth
In the Daniel & Belle Fangmeyer Theatre
Directed by Erin McCarson

Weekends June 16 – July 2

They dropped everything for a good cause…

When personal loss hits Annie, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. But how? They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar. This laugh out loud comedy is full of poignant moments – about friendship, determination and hope; about loss in many forms; about the importance of acceptance; about knowing when to let go. Based on the true story of eleven older women who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2009 and has since become the fastest-selling play in British theatre history.

May contain partial nudity. Suitable for all audiences.

Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella

By Rodgers and Hammerstein
On the Steve Lloyd Stage
Directed by Kristen Hedberg

Weekends July 7 –  July 30

Impossible things are happening every day.

Nominated for 9 Tony Awards, the enchanting 2013 Broadway adaptation of the beloved musical will put a spell on audiences of all ages. From arguably the greatest songwriting team in musical theatre history, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella showcases some of the duo’s loveliest tunes, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible,” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” as well as some new characters and surprising twists. Far from the Disney film, this beautiful adaptation explores the vast separation between the ragged Cinderella and her royal Prince and the determination, self-confidence, and friendly help that lead them to their happy ending. Add a dash of fairy-tale romance, magical onstage transformations, and the iconic pumpkin and glass slippers—and you’re guaranteed to have a ball!

Every Brilliant Thing

By Duncan Macmillan
In the Daniel & Belle Fangmeyer Theatre
Directed by Hannah Williams

Weekends Aug 4 –  Aug 20

What are the brilliant things in your life that you are living for?

If there is one play you want to see this year to feel uplifted – this is it. This touching and hilarious one man show offers us a clear way out of the darkness: making a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. What started as a 6 year old’s list of everything that’s worth living for (1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose…) soon takes on a life of its own and defines who we are. Audience members are as much a part of the show as our main character, taking on roles in his life, shouting out thousands of brilliant things, and interacting with each other in an unforgettable way. Every Brilliant Thing is the funniest play about depression you will ever see and may be the funniest play you ever see, full stop.  

Suitable for all audiences.
Tickets go on sale in May of 2023.

 

 

Monty Python’s Spamalot

By Eric Idle
On the Steve Lloyd Stage
Directed by Dominic Aquilino

Weekends Aug 25 – Sept 17

Find your grail.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. The 2005 Broadway production received 14 Tony nominations and won three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”

Suitable for all audiences.

There’s a Good Ol’ Girl in all of us. Let yours out.

Join us at HART for a night of good eats, live music, and southern women! Two of Nashville’s leading singer/songwriters redefine the modern Southern woman in Good ‘Ol Girls, a musical about love, loss and laughter. Through the language of five unique southerners, Good ‘Ol Girls celebrates childhood through old age with big hair and bigger hearts. This new musical is based on the stories of two prominent Southern authors, Lee Smith and Jill McCorkle, with songs by Nashville hit-makers Matraca Berg (Reba McEntire, Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill) and Marshall Chapman (Jimmy Buffett, Wynonna, Olivia Newton-John). This will be a one of a kind dinner theatre experience to provide you with an unforgettable night out at HART!

Death of a Salesman

By Arthur Miller
On the Steve Lloyd Stage
Directed by Doug Savitt

Weekends Oct 13 – Oct 29

A small man can be just as exhausted as a great man.

Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer-Prize winning American classic is a poignant look at the life of everyman Willy Loman, complete with grand hopes and heartbreaking missteps. Willy is on a quest for the American Dream, and wants more than anything for his family to achieve it alongside him. But their own visions of that dream – and their perceptions of who Willy really is beyond his façade – don’t necessarily match up with his reality. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American Theatre.

Suitable for all audiences.
