Area theaters announce their 2013-14 seasons

Audiences should find much to satisfy their theatrical curiosity with a lineup of nearly 120 productions scheduled during the 2013-14 season.
BY RICK ROGERS rrogers@opubco.com Published: August 18, 2013

From “Altar Boyz” and “Antony and Cleopatra” to “Wicked” and “Working,” central Oklahoma's 2013-14 theater offerings promise incredible diversity, from dramas, comedies and children's fare to musicals, radio plays and revues.

And with nearly 120 productions scheduled throughout the fall, spring and early summer, the upcoming season provides theater enthusiasts with ample opportunity to satisfy their love for a kind of magic that only the stage can provide.

As always, theater productions and dates are subject to change. Most companies offer season subscriptions as well as single ticket sales. Theater telephone numbers and websites are a good place to start.

And for anyone who may be interested in embarking upon a theatrical exploration, it's wise to remember

Kenneth Haigh's quote: “You need three things in the theater — the play, the actors and the audience — and each must give something.”
