Stowe Theatre Guild Announces 2012 Season

Stowe Theatre Guild’s 2012 season promises to bring another fantastic lineup of theater. In June, the season kicks off with the musical comedy of plucky, small-town Millie Dillmount on her adventures in the big city in “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” followed by Irving Berlin’s “Annie Get Your Gun,” a tale of the great sharpshooter, Annie Oakley, who rises to fame while dealing with her love/professional rival, Frank Butler. Then comes Stephen Sondheim’s classical musical thriller “Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” The season rounds out in the fall with Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical “Next To Normal,” a story about a family dealing with crisis.

Offered again this year is the Super Value Season Ticket – available for a limited time – which enables you to save 10 percent off the cost of tickets and fees by purchasing a season ticket and pay $18 per show, plus tax.
