ALT is thrilled to announce our Dynamite 2013-2014 Expanded Main Stage Season!
We are so excited about the shows we are bringing you for our 2013 – 2014 season… and some great improvements…
**Like expanding our exciting Main Stage Season to seven shows! Rather than having an “official” Family Series, we made a point to include family-friendly productions that will be great for children to attend, and perform in!
**We are also changing the time of all evening performances to 7:30pm, to accommodate audience requests and families who want to bring their children.
It’s an exciting time here at ALT… and we want you to share it with us.
And now, we proudly present to you…

All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes! An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy – 10 years in the West End at the Criterion Theatre! Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter! *We’re bringing this one back for you — it’s the biggest ALT hit comedy of the last five years!
YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, Rated PG-13*
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan; Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
OCTOBER 11 – NOVEMBER 3, 2013
IT’S ALIVE! From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically-proven, monstrously good entertainment…and the only place you’ll witness a singing and dancing laboratory experiment in the largest tuxedo ever made!
MIRACLE ON 34th STREET, Rated G*
Adapted by Mountain Community Theater from the novel by Valentine Davies. Based upon the Twentieth Century Fox motion picture
NOVEMBER 29 – DECEMBER 24, 2013
Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, gets a job working as Santa for Macy’s. Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy’s customers and the commercial world of New York City by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy’s vocational counselor, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl’s belief in Santa. In a dramatic decision, the court confirms Kris as the true Santa, allowing Susan and countless other children to experience the joy of childhood fantasy.
THE MOUSETRAP, Rated PG*
By Agatha Christie
JANUARY 24 – FEBRUARY 9, 2014
The world’s longest-running play, now celebrating its 60th year! A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly-married couple who runs the house, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. To get to the rationale of the murderer’s pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, rattling a lot of skeletons along the way. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish!
CATS, Rated G*
By Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot
FEBRUARY 28 – MARCH 23, 2014
Adapted by Christopher Sergel; from the novel by Harper Lee
APRIL 11 – 27, 2014
Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his kids against prejudice. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes audiences to the roots of human behavior – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and despair.
LES MISERABLES, Rated PG*
Book by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg; Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg; Lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer
MAY 23 – JUNE 15, 2014
This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Epic, grand and ultimately uplifting, Les Miserables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.
