LA SALLE - Season tickets for Stage 212’s 50th anniversary season are now on sale.

The LaSalle theater group will hit the ground running this winter with “The 39 Steps,” a fast-paced comedic whodunit by Patrick Barlow, directed by Scot Smigel.

Spring will bring time for reflection with “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a faithful adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel by Christopher Sergel, directed by Ellen Marincic.

Summer will be a blast from the past with a revival of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” This popular musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber will be directed by Cindy Myers.

Next fall, a taste of the holidays will take the stage with “White Christmas,” an adaptation of the delightful movie musical by David Ives and Paul Blake with songs by Irving Berlin, directed by Abby Bertrand.

Stage 212 season tickets are $55, which is a discount of more than 20 percent over buying individual tickets. Additionally, season ticket holders are able to reserve individual seats before tickets go on sale to the general public.

Angels are those who can offer more support to community theater, starting at $150. For their extra donation, an Angel receives two season subscriptions, has top priority when ordering tickets for any of the season’s shows and is acknowledged in each show program as a supporter of Stage 212. Additionally, season ticket holders and Angels will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to Stage 212’s special 50th anniversary production before they go on sale to the general public.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the Stage 212 box office at (815) 224-3025, by e-mailing [email protected] or by visiting www.stage212.org.

Stage 212 is this area’s community theater and has presented nearly 200 productions since 1968. Individuals with an interest in theatre, with or without previous experience, are encouraged to become involved in its projects. Volunteers are always welcome for stage, set and house crews.
