TPAC announces 2013-2014 season


Get out your brooms because it is going to be a wicked ride during the 2013-2014 theater season at Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC).

The 2013-14 HCA/TriStar Health Broadway at TPAC Series kicks off with Jersey Boys, a documentary-style show that chronicles the rise and fall of The Four Seasons. Brush up on your lyrics and be prepared to sing along with such favorites as "Big Girls Don't Cry", "December 1963 (Oh What a Night) and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You". Jersey Boys runs October 29 to November 3.

Continuing with the jukebox trend, We Will Rock You is a musical based on the songs of Queen and will run November 12 to November 17.

Get the tissues out as pottery will never be the same. The hit 90s movie Ghost starring Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg and the late Patrick Swayze comes to the TPAC stage as a reimagined musical February 25 to March 2.

Speaking of Whoopi, be prepared to sing Hallelujah when Sister Act takes the stage March 11 to March 16.

Tennessee shines bright at TPAC when Million Dollar Quartet, a musical that chronicles the historical day that Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins recorded at Sun Record Studios in Memphis, hits the stage May 6 to May 11.

Finally the 2013-14 HCA/TriStar Health Broadway at TPAC Series closes with War Horse. You won't want to miss the giant life-size horse puppets when the season’s closing show gallops onto the TPAC stage June 3 to June 8.

But that's not all folks. TPAC also announces its 2013-14 Broadway Specials.

First, a tale as old as time roars onto the TPAC stage when Disney's Beauty and the Beast comes to Nashville September 24 to September 29.

And the mother of all musicals Wicked, based upon Gregory Maguire's delicious story about the Wicked Witch of the West, is sure to have sold-out audiences when it runs March 26 to April 20.

But wait, can you believe there is more?

TPAC announces some special add-on shows. Be prepared to deal with ghosts of Christmas past, present and future when Studio Tenn presents A Christmas Carol December 12 to 22 and a laugh riot when I Love Lucy: Live on Stage comes January 14 to January 26.
