"Blithe Spirit"


 October 13 - November 5

 Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm


Click here to read the Davis Enterprise review


After a kooky clairvoyant’s “spirited” séance goes decidedly wrong, a cantankerous novelist suddenly finds himself haunted by the ghost of his winsome first wife, much to the chagrin of his jealous second. One of the most beloved stage comedies of all time, Blithe Spirit is the supernatural choice for hi-jinks and hilarity at Halloween time.


Recommended for audiences ages 8 and up. Due to the nature of the show and for the comfort of our patrons and actors we do not allow children under the age of 4yrs old.


Reserved seats are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors 62+, and $12 for children 17 and under. Balcony tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children. Flex Pass specials and group rates are available.  Click here to purchase your reserved seats


 

 November 24  -  December 17

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm

 

“I suppose it would have been better if I had never been born at all,” laments George Bailey in the Christmas classic “It’s A Wonderful Life, the Musical” which opens Friday November 24th at the Woodland Opera House.

 

This quintessential Christmas story, which runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Dec. 17, tells the saga of George Bailey, “the everyman from small town Bedford Falls” whose dreams of escape and adventure are repeatedly quashed by his family obligations and civic duty.

 

The play finds George on Christmas Eve, in serious trouble, and with the whole town praying for him. Clarence Oddbody, his guardian angel, is sent down from the heavens to save him.

 

Clarence, who still needs to earn his wings, must save George and sets out to show him what the world would be like “had he never been born.”

 

Based on the beloved 1946 film, this musical faithfully follows George Bailey's life from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond, as we all take a journey to discover whether his life has mattered at all. Cinematically scored and theatrically staged, this adaptation breathes musical life into a familiar story, while retaining the warmth, humor, and pathos of the original. A new holiday classic for devotees and newcomers alike

 

The show is directed by Dean Shellenberger (“The Diary of Ann Frank” and “The Miracle Worker”), with musical direction by James Glica-Hernandez (“Beauty and the Beast”) and choreography by Staci Arriaga (“West Side Story”)  The cast includes Erik Catalan as George Bailey, Jori Gonzalez as Mary Bailey, Richard Lui as Clarence the angel, Steve Mackay as Uncle Billy, Josh Wheeler as Harry Bailey, Kyle Hadley as Sam, Nancy Agee as Ma Bailey, Stephanie Hodson as Violet, and James Glica-Hernandez as Mr. Potter.

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular "Corny Collins Show." When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her 'do!

The Emperor's New Clothes

March 23  -  31

Fridays at 7:30, Saturdays and Sunday at 2pm

It’s not easy being 13, especially not for Calvin. His father, the kingdom’s beloved emperor, has died, and now Calvin is expected to assume the throne—the last thing this shy, awkward boy wants to do. And just when he needs his family most, Calvin's jealous Uncle Giles conspires with a couple of slippery con artists to steal the crown away from his vulnerable nephew. Can Calvin overcome his insecurities and thwart Giles’s dastardly plot? All will be revealed in this surprising new twist on the Hans Christian Andersen classic penned by WOH’s own Bob Cooner, creator of last season’s Prime Time for the Holidays
