The world is a stage and the stage brings the world to you; the World of Theatre. Seattle’s Paramount Theatre has announced their 2024-2025 season and it is not to be missed.  There are wonderful classics, great shows destined to be classics, and a few new surprises as well. Several ‘favorites’ being brought back by popular demand, and there is something to for everyone.

Peter Pan (August 21 – 25, 2024) – This classic will make you crow with joy. With a new adaptation by Larissa FastHorse, this show will have you wanting to run away with the Lost Boys and believing in fairies.

Funny Girl (September 24 – 29, 2024) – The magnificent (and true) career of Fanny Bryce is chronicled in this classic musical. One of Broadway’s love letters to theatre performers, this show has some of America’s best loved songs from Broadway: “People”, “Don’t Rain on My Parade”, and “I’m the Greatest Star” among many others, this is the first time Funny Girl has toured since its 1967 Broadway run – a role that originally launched Barbra Streisand’s career.

WICKED (November 06 – December 01, 2024) – Optional add-on show – Telling the story of the witches of Oz, Elphaba is the girl who proves that “It isn’t easy being green”. The show is full of great music and has cast its spell for over 15 years on Broadway by becoming the fourth longest running Broadway show in American history.

Back to the Future (December 10 – 22, 2024) – “Woah! This is [not] heavy!” This musical comedy is based on the beloved hit movie. Join Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown as Marty travels back in time to 1955, and almost erases his entire future.

Kimberly Akimbo (January 07 – 12, 2025) – Kimberly is about to turn 16 when her family moves to a new town in New Jersey. Kimberly suffers from a rare genetic condition that causes her to age at a rapid pace, and she looks much older than she is in reality. She is determined to find happiness as she tries to live life with her illness, her family’s dysfunction, felony charges, and her first crush. The New Yorker calls this show a “Howlingly funny heartbreaker of a show”

Hamilton (February 04 – March 02, 2025) – Optional add-on show – This smash hit show has been filling theatre houses for several years! The brilliant modern musical about America’s Founding Father.

Life of Pi (April 15 – 20, 2025) – This non-musical has been called “Visually Stunning” by many, and an “exhilarating evening of theatre” by the Wall Street Journal. After a shipwreck a young man is trying to survive on a lifeboat with his four companions; a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a tiger. Using exquisite puppetry and visuals, this show will delight the senses.

They compete by sharing their stories with the caveat that whomever had the worst time with the King, will be the group’s leader.

Riverdance  (May 30 – June 01, 2025) – Optional add-on show – this visual performance dances its way back to Seattle.

Mamma Mia! (June 10 – 15, 2025) – Optional add-on show – How can I resist you? This much beloved musical hit returns to Seattle! A young bride wants her father to walk her down the aisle, but there are three choices for the honor. Weaving the high-energy music of ABBA, this show has delighted audiences around the world.

& Juliet (July 29 – August 03, 2025) from the creators of “Schitt’s Creek”, this new take on Romeo & Juliet is a delightful alternative tale. The story asks, “what happens if Juliet didn’t kill herself over Romeo”? This musical shows what a new take on life can reveal.

No matter what your tastes are in theatre, there is something here for you to enjoy.
