Arizona Broadway Theatre announces 2023-24 season


Arizona Broadway Theatre has announced its 2023-24 season with musicals audiences love including Irving Berlin’s "White Christmas," Roald Dahl’s "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" Arizona professional theater premiere, and the highly anticipated return and summer production, Disney’s "The Little Mermaid."

Donors and full season subscribers gathered Feb. 27 to be the first to learn the productions for the upcoming season and enjoyed preview performances of songs from the season’s lineup. This type of roll-out of a new ABT production season has been a tradition, as many subscribers have been supporting ABT since 2006, or as many will say, “Since the Tent.”

The 2023-24 season opens with the return of an audience favorite "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" beginning Sept. 29, with an opening season kick-off party.

The musical follows favored son Joseph, his father Jacob, 11 brothers, and the coat of many colors in this over-the-top, Bible-inspired (Book of Genesis) musical comedy with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Throughout the years, ABT has been a part of many families’ and friends' seasonal traditions with dining and a holiday musical performance.

Arizona Broadway Theatre holiday subscriber favorite Irving Berlin’s "White Christmas," returns to the mainstage November-December. Featuring songs from Irving Berlin, "White Christmas" sparkles with holiday cheer, dancing, and laughter.

Next up, beginning January 2024, experience "On the Town," a musical comedy with iconic location scenes in New York and a score by Leonard Bernstein. Travel back to New York City in 1944 with three curious U.S. Navy sailors in search of love, fun, and the beautiful Miss Turnstiles! With only 24 hours to hit the Big Apple, Gabey, Chip, and Ozzie prowl the city’s points of interest, each finding romance with interesting ladies, only to find themselves in “awkward” situations.

Heading into March 2024, get ready to go on an adventure with Charlie Bucket, an imaginative boy whose dreams of acquiring a golden ticket to tour Willy Wonka’s over-the-top chocolate factory, come true. Audiences will satisfy their sweet tooth, as ABT premieres the imaginative world of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." This family-friendly adventure is full of mouth-watering visuals that must be believed to be seen. Strike that! Reverse it!

The last three productions of the season include "A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder," which starts in May 2024. This musical is a murderous romp filled with music, nonstop laughs, and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. This is a hilarious not-be-be-missed musical that will have you rolling in your
seats with laughter.

Summer 2024, journey into a kingdom under the sea as Disney’s "The Little Mermaid" returns as it was placed on hold due to the pandemic.

Wrapping up the 2023-24 season, and with the popularity of ABT’s production of "Game Show," audiences will again play an active role and help solve the murder with the Detective as "CLUE The Musical" begins in August 2024. Audiences are invited to dine and be in the room when ABT brings the world’s best-known suspects to the mainstage to solve this mystery. Six suspects, six rooms, and six weapons. With more than 200 possible endings, everyone’s a suspect.

Arizona Broadway Theatre is ready to provide a full season of Broadway’s best musicals to the Valley of the Sun with talented local and national voices, phenomenal storytelling and much more. Join ABT for a delicious meal and a spectacular performance with a dinner and performance ticket, or simply enjoy a specialty cocktail in the lobby before the production with a performance ticket. Whichever you choose, you will create lasting memories at this one-of-a-kind theater.
