2024-2025 Theatre Season

Welcome to the 2024-2025 Theatre Season

BREAKING THE NARRATIVE

Welcome to the 24-25 Theatre Season at the Arvada Center! Ranging from sugary-sweet musical theatre hits to satirical looks at race and gentrification, the stories in this theatre season all upend expectations. 

A small-town waitress who doesn't give up on her dreams; Victorian heroines who subvert the rules of their genre; an un-delicate princess who stays true to herself; a family struggling to make space for themselves in a new neighborhood; a man who literally murders his way into the upper class. These stories all seem to be heading down familiar roads, but then they each surprise with plot twists and characters that subvert the narratives in big and small ways. 

Our season ticket packages are more flexible and customizable than ever. Buy season tickets that fit into your schedule, and save up to 25%.

WAITRESS

August 30 - October 13, 2024

Book by Jessie Nelson, music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles

Jenna is a waitress and expert pie-maker trapped in a small town and a rocky marriage. Faced with an unexpected pregnancy, Jenna fears her dreams are out of reach - until a baking contest and a handsome doctor offer up a sweet taste of happiness.

Based on the 2007 film by the same name, Waitress features original music and lyrics by Grammy winning musician Sara Bareilles (“Love Song,” “Brave”) and a book by Jessie Nelson. This delicious musical celebrates the power of friendship and chosen family, following your dreams, and the joy of a perfect pie.
 


DRACULA: A FEMINIST REVENGE FANTASY, REALLY

The Book Club Play

September 27 - November 3, 2024

By Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Bram Stoker

A revenge fantasy to sink your teeth into! One part horror, one part humor, playwright Kate Hamill upends the sexism in Bram Stoker’s vampire classic in a thrilling, gory and funny new adaptation. 

Who are the real monsters, and who is actually in distress? Dracula’s Victorian tropes of fainting ladies and evil villains get turned on their heads. Fierce, feminist and frightening, Dracula: A Feminist Revenge Fantasy, Really drives a gleeful stake through the heart of the patriarchy itself.


ONCE UPON A MATTRESS

November 22 - December 29, 2024

Music by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer, book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer

Prince Dauntless’s outspoken Queen mother and quiet King father decree that no one in the kingdom may marry until their son finds someone sensitive enough to be a true princess. Will goofy, awkward Winnifred the Woebegone from the swamp finally be the one to pass the seemingly-impossible test?

In this laugh-out-loud musical version of "The Princess and the Pea," Once Upon a Mattress redefines what it takes to be a princess. Perfect for the whole family, this hilarious tale zany enough to launch the Broadway career of Carol Burnett celebrates the uniqueness in all of us.


CLYBOURNE PARK

February 14 - March 30, 2025

By Bruce Norris

The scene is one house on Clybourne Street in Chicago’s South Side. In 1959, a Black family moves in. In 2009, a white family does. In between, everything changes - attitudes, demographics, and property values. Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race, housing, and gentrification.

Loosely inspired by Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, Bruce Norris's pitch-black comedy takes on the specter of gentrification in our communities, leaving no stone unturned in the process.


A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER

March 28 - May 11, 2025

Music by Steven Lutvak, book by Robert L. Freedman, lyrics by Steven Lutvak and Robert L. Freedman

Getting away with murder is just so much fun. Charming and cunning, Monty Navarro discovers he’s in line for an earldom in the aristocratic D'Ysquith family. Eighth in line, to be exact. Monty plots to speed up the line of succession through any means necessary - all while juggling his mistress, his fiancee, his reputation, and an increasing body count that’s raising suspicions of the law.  

Each of the eight heirs stand on the chopping block of Monty’s ambitions, hilariously played by one scene-stealing actor swapping from role to role. This Tony Award-winning musical romp gleefully tells the story of wrongfully getting what is rightfully yours.
