A New Play
Yet to be selected, the front-runner is “You Never Know,” a new musical by Charles Strouse, the Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer of “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Annie” and “Applause." Set in a glamorous Miami resort in 1948, this musical-within-a-musical looks at a philandering Presidential candidate, his movie-star wife, and the hero - the composer of a Broadway hit that's just over the horizon.

Charles Dickens' “A Christmas Carol” will also return for its 28th annual production. All titles are subject to change. Exact performance dates will be released shortly.

Season subscriptions are available at the box office or by calling 401-351-4242. The Trinity Rep box office is located at 201 Washington Street in Providence.
