QCTC brings you an exciting season full of Charlotte premieres with the best of Broadway, Off-Broadway and beyond! Don't miss these exciting shows that will bring one more time to the Duke Energy Theatre a broad array of genres for the delight of our audiences.
Our season opener, The Money Shot by Neil Labute fresh off its Off-Broadway run brings a sexy, daring and darkly hilarious comedy like you've never seen before. One of the most anticipated shows of the year!
We continue in November 2015 with Birds of a Feather by Marc Acito, based on the true story of Roy and Silo, the two Central Park Zoo gay penguins who partnered, adopted and egg, hatched and raised a chick together. In 2005, they were the subject of the widely contested children's book, And Tango Makes Three banned in several states from the school system. Winner of the 2012 Helen Hayes award for Best New Play.
In February 2016 QCTC brings yet one more Regional Premiere to the stage with Harvey Fierstein's Tony nominated Casa Valentina. From the creator of La Cage Aux Folles, Kinky Boots and Torch Song Trilogy, comes this touching comedy of white-collar professionals who discreetly escape their families to spend their weekends safely inhabiting their chosen female alter-egos. Based on real events and infused with Fierstein's trademark wit, this moving, insightful and delightfully entertaining show offer a glimpse into the lives of this group of "self-made women" looking for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.
Our incredible season closes in May 2016 with the long awaited premiere of Heathers - The Musical (Kevin Murphy/Laurence O'Keefe)! Based on the cult classic 1989 film, Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing clique: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under. Heathers - The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all times!
We hope to see you soon at the Duke Energy Theatre to enjoy one more season of exciting entertainment with Queen City Theatre Company!
