Announcing The 2018-2019 Season
Wharton Center announces its 2018-2019 season which includes the dates for the premiere engagement of HAMILTON as well as a host of Tony Award® winning Broadway shows and a magnificent, diverse Performing Arts series. Executive Director Mike Brand says, “It’s another incredible season matched with many opportunities to engage and connect with artists and the community.”
This year’s MSU Federal Credit Union Broadway at Wharton Center season features the premiere engagement of HAMILTON, which will be on the Cobb Great Hall stage for three weeks starting May 14 through June 2, 2019. Adding to the excitement is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s SCHOOL OF ROCK THE MUSICAL and LOVE NEVER DIES, which is the spellbinding sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, ANASTASIA, and MISS SAIGON round out the series.
The Performing Arts series includes more than two dozen of the top dance, jazz, classical and children’s shows on tour. The beloved and celebrated soprano Renée Fleming, “the people’s diva,” will return, as will the groundbreaking Jessica Lang Dance (after an acclaimed appearance at Wharton Center in 2017); The Monterey Jazz Festival, featuring Cécile McLorin Salvant, Bria Skonberg, and many other top artists, will celebrate their 60th Anniversary celebration with us next year; Steve Martin and Martin Short will share non-stop laughs in An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life; Soweto Gospel Choir; Mannheim Steamroller Christmas; Regina Carter; and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are all part of the season. The Magic School Bus Lost in The Solar System, The One and Only Ivan, and Junie B. Jones are included in the Act One Family Series.
Brand says, “The best way to experience it all is by becoming a season subscriber. You’ll be able to reserve up to six seats to HAMILTON before it goes on sale to the general public.” Subscribers also receive benefits that include significant discounts—up to 20% off public ticket prices—it is like buying six shows for less than the price of five! In addition, they receive special offers throughout the season, and can take advantage of incentives that include a Subscriber Discount Card offering great discounts at local retailers and restaurants.
