ArlingtonTheatre Arlington's 2014-15 season has been announced, and looks like a fairy typical roster of fairly family-friendly material, with newer plays mixed in, including Steven Dietz's Becky's New Car and Tom Duzick's Miracle on South Division Street, both of which had their regional premieres at Circle Theatre in recent years. There's also the regional premiere of Ed Dixon's musical Whodunit. Most notable is that this is the first season selected by new Executive Director Norman Ussery.

Season tickets are now on sale, visit for more info.


Here's the line-up:


Whodunit — The Musical

Regional Premier Musical Comedy by Ed Dixon

September 12 - October 5, 2014

A wealthy spinster and her maid take a beautiful Connecticut summer home in 1931. . . .a gunshot sounds and the body of a total stranger is found lying in the middle of the living room. . . . then another. A very austere detective arrives and things get REALLY strange... and funny.


Miracle on South Division Street

Comedy by Tom Dudzick

October 24 - November 9, 2014

Clara and her three grown kids in Buffalo, NY, have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop! The entire family's faith is shaken when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel. The results are heartfelt and hilarious.


The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Holiday Comedy by Barbara Robinson

December 5 - 21, 2014

In this hilarious classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdman kids collide with the Christmas story head on!



Farce by Marc Camoletti

January 16 - February 1st, 2015

This 1960’s farce features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each a beautiful airline stewardess with frequent "layovers". He keeps "one up, one down and one pending" until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Bernard's apartment at the same time.


Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR.

Youth Musical

February 20 - March 8, 2015

Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above.


Becky’s New Car

Comedy/Drama by Steven Dietz

March 27 - April 12, 2015

Becky is caught in middle age, middle management and a mediocre marriage—when a grief-stricken millionaire wanders into the car dealership where she works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience gets to ride shotgun in a thoroughly original comedy, a surprising and delightful romp down the road not taken.



Musical by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis

May 1 - 24, 2015

With the most awful title ever in musical theater history, this funny, innovative, big-hearted musical will leave you cheering and humming the tunes. In an attempt to regulate water consumption, Urinetown (a mythical, bad place) has outlawed the use of private toilets. Nominated for 10 Tony awards and won three!


The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Youth Adventure by C.S. Lewis (adapted by Joseph Robinette)

July 10 - 19, 2015

This dramatization of C.S. Lewis' classic, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.


Mama Won’t Fly

Comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten

August 7 - 23, 2015

This hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah agrees to get her feisty mother from Alabama to California in time for her brother's wedding. Savannah's problem: Mama won't fly. With only four days to get there, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country in Mama's vintage Buick. Thanks For Reading
