The season features two regional premieres, a return to an original holiday musical commissioned by NVA, and a popular movie musical. Kristianne Kurner, Founder and Executive Artistic Director calls this “the most ambitious season in our history. With the renovation of our Carlsbad Village home and the renaming of our building and theatre, we knew it was important to include some statement plays this season.”
