New Season, Ticket Prices Announced

house“Something old, but nothing blue”” is one way to describe Hanover Little Theatre’’s 68th season in 2016-17. The lineup features a pair of farcical comedies, a funny and touching examination of “working women” of a certain age and a hilarious musical about an office talent show.

  • The Old People Are Revolting, a comedy directed by Beau Bowden. A group of seniors take their grievances into their own hands with hilarious results. The show will run Sept. 9-11; 15-18, 2016.
  • The Oldest Profession, a dram-edy directed by Courtney McDougall. Five senior-citizen “working women” adjust to life in the 1980s as their clientele begins to die off and their New York undergoes radical changes. The show will run Nov. 11-13; 17-20, 2016.
  • Incorruptible, a comedy. Facing the closure of their monastery, a group of monks turn to drastic and hilarious measures to keep the order afloat. The show will run March 31-April 2 and April 6-9, 2017.
  • Funny Business, a musical directed by Charlie Beard. The Chime Communications office staff works through their problems through song to try and avoid layoffs. The show will run July 14-16; 20-23, 2017.

For the first time in five years, the theatre will implement a new pricing structure. Tickets to all productions will be $15, eliminating the price difference between plays and musicals. Additionally, we will eliminate fees associated with online orders. The only fees which remain will be a $2 fee for phone orders and a $1 fee for tickets sent through the mail.

The theatre’’s membership plans, which includes ticket vouchers for most levels, have no fees. These plans allow for ticket access before tickets go on sale to the general public. Season tickets provide the same seat to each performance as an additional option. Memberships for the 2016-17 season are on sale now.

“”While we don’’t like to increase prices, we had to make this decision because of the rising costs associated with our productions and maintaining our facilities,”” said outgoing board president Heidi Hormel. “”However, we hope the reduction of ticket fees will benefit our patrons in the long run.””
