Neptune Theatre announces its 2024-2025 season

The eleven productions during the season will include the musicals Disney's Frozen and Little Shop of Horrors.

Neptune Theatre’s artistic director, Jeremy Webb, announced a 2024-2025 season of eleven productions as part of its 62nd season.

“Our season theme is ‘Experience the Extraordinary,’ which is all about those exciting moments of wonder and awe that are unforgettable,” said Webb. “The season delivers  everything that we seek from live theatre – laughter, tears, suspense and lots of music.”

Neptune Theatre’s 2024-2025 season includes four musicals/musical events, four comedies, four dramas, six Canadian plays, and one world premiere for a total of 330 performances.

The season gets underway with Dear Rita (Jul 30-Aug 25), a musical celebration of iconic Cape Breton singer-songwriter and storyteller Rita MacNeil.

William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Sep 10-Oct 5) follows, which Webb hinted will be an experience you’ve never had before, teasing that there will be an immersive component of the production.

In October comes King Gilgamesh & The Man of the Wild (Oct 1-6) as part of this year’s Prismatic Festival, a hybrid theatre-music production that interweaves with the ancient Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh and, along the way, traces co-playwright Ahmed Moneka’s real-life journey from exiled Iraqi actor to acclaimed musician in Canada.

This holiday season, audiences will be invited to “let it go” with the stage production of the musical Disney’s Frozen (Nov 7-Jan 5), based on the 2013 animated film.

Also in November is the dance theatre piece Winter Moons (Nov 12-24), which follows the teachings of L’nu (Mi’kmaw) women carrying a fire ember through the winter season – three moons of winter.

Dickens’ A Christmas Carol (Dec 3-29) returns once again for its 21st season, as it tells the timeless story of Ebenezer Scrooge on a fateful Christmas Eve as he meets the three ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.

The new year starts with a new production of Andrew Scott’s award-winning play Controlled Damage (Jan 11-Feb 2), exploring the life of Canadian civil rights icon Viola Desmond.

Revolutionary, singer, movie star, WWII spy, and civil rights activist Josephine Baker is in the spotlight in Josephine: A Musical Cabaret (Feb 13-16). This biographical musical combines cabaret, theatre and dance to tell her story.

In The New Canadian Curling Club (Feb 25-Mar 23), a small town organizes a learn-to-curl class to welcome newcomers in an inspiring and hilarious story of a group of unlikely athletes who face off against local prejudice and claim their identity as “new Canadians.”

The closing musical this season is Little Shop of Horrors (Mar 11-May 11), in which a meteor shower brings a talking plant into a down-on-his-luck nerd, Seymour’s life, leading him down a path of murder, mayhem, and true love.

The 2024-2025 season closes with Casey & Diana (Apr 22-May 18). Set in 1991, during the height of the AIDS crisis, it is the story of Diana, Princess of Wales, who visits Toronto’s first free-standing AIDS Hospice, Casey House and helps reshape the course of a global epidemic.

Season subsriptions to Neptune Theatre’s 2024-2024 season are now on sale, with single tickets on sale on June 1, 2024. Visit neptunetheatre.com for more information.
