Cygnet Theatre is pleased to announce its joyful and overdue return to in-person performances starting in September 2021. Audiences are set to experience a season of hope, redemption and humor beginning with the long-awaited return of the Tony award-winning musical “La Cage Aux Folles” with book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman. The stellar musical received only one preview performance in 2020 before all stages went dark due to COVID-19. The production is directed by Artistic Director Sean Murray and takes place Friday, September 10 through Sunday, October 24, 2021 at the theatre in Old Town.

“I can’t even begin to describe how elated we are to return to in-person performances” says director Sean Murray. “After nearly a year and a half, we’re turning on the lights and dusting off the set that has been patiently waiting for actors and audiences to return. And this show, with its message of hope, love and redemption is the perfect way to joyously return to the art we all love.” He continues, “I’m equally excited about the rest of the season. The artistic team has come up with a selection of plays and musicals that not only inspire and entertain, but also reflect the work our company has done to ensure our space is more inclusive, equitable and accessible.”

After “La Cage Aux Folles” in the fall, Cygnet’s 2021-22 Season continues with the familiar audience favorite “A Christmas Carol,”directed bySean Murrayand running from Tuesday November 23 through Sunday, December 26, 2021. This tried and true classic returns with new cast members, new energy, and new hope!
