WT Theatre presents "The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!"
Happy State Bank Studio Theatre
7:30 P.M., 2:30 P.M. on September 30 and October 7
The story revolves around the young ingenue, June, who is unable to pay the rent and seeks advice from her friend Abby. However, will June be able to pay her rent before her evil landlord Jitter kicks her out? Will the handsome young man come to her rescue? Stay tuned because what makes this musical so memorable is the fact that the same story will be told five times parodying five different composers of musical theatre fame! Join the stylings of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Weber, and John Kander & Fred Ebb. If you enjoy musicals, you are sure to love this satirical, yet fun night of all the best that Musical Theatre has to offer.

WT Theatre presents "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead"
Branding Iron Theatre
7:30 P.M., 2:30 P.M. on November 18
It is the story of Hamlet,  only with a twist. This time the story is told through the eyes of two minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. They struggle to recall why they are traveling, who the messenger was that called them, and what their purpose in life is, if any. Along the way, other characters from Shakespeare's masterpiece come and go, reenacting fragments of the play only to leave Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to dig deeper into reality, illusion, and life. As the title suggests, the outcome of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern is known. What isn't known is the journey leading up to that moment from their point of view and when they realize the end has arrived.

WT Theatre presents "Peter and the Starcatcher"
Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum Hazlewood Room

7:30 P.M., 2:30 P.M. on January 27
Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatcher takes audiences deeper in to the backstory of the characters that J.M. Barrie created in Peter Pan. The orphan boy who refuses to grow up starts off on a ship with friends heading from Victorian England to an island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. A mysterious trunk is also on board this ship, whose contents are unknown, until a young girl named Molly discovers the boys, the ship, and she knows what is inside that mysterious trunk- something so powerful that it can never fall into villainous hands. Come and enjoy this special one-hour event intended for families at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.

Spring Awakening is a Tony Award ® winning rock musical based on a late 19th century German play, under the same name, by Frank Wadekind.

This "landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality, and rock and roll that is exhilarating audiences across the nation like no other musical in years." (Music Theatre International). There will be pre-show talks before each performance, watch for more information.

WT Theatre presents "The Wolves"
A soccer game lsts 90 minutes, so does The Wolves, a play that digs into a high school girl's soccer team. Over the course of the play, we experience six pregame warmups and begin to realize that there are more to these girls than just being girls. They are soccer players, they are teenagers, they are complicated, and they are human. They want to score some goals, and along the way they will deal with issues such as performace pressure, being the star athlete, scholarships, friendship, sex, and self-worth. Named one of the best plays of 2016 by The New York Times, this play contains strong language and is meant for mature audiences only.
