January 11, 2011 by SoWal Staff

Seaside Repertory Theatre's eleventh season in 2011 is packed with good ole gals, gripping drama and holiday charm with  the toe-tapping tunes of “

Honky Tonk Angels,” the delightful and clever “Matt & Ben,” the screwball comedy “Around The World in 80 Days,” and the gripping drama “The Turn of the Screw.”  

The season will wrap up in December with a hilarious return engagement of “Every Christmas Story Ever Told ( And Then Some!)”  Subscriptions are on-sale now and may be purchased by calling the box office at 850.231.0733 or online at www.seasiderep.org.

The Summer Repertory Season begins with “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” on Thursdays in Alys Beach followed by “The Stinky Cheese Man” on Mondays at Seaside, “How I Became a Pirate” on Tuesdays at Watercolor and “The Commedia Pinocchio” on Wednesdays at Rosemary Beach.  These kid-friendly family shows are the perfect complement to a day at the beach.

For the Mainstage Season, subscription prices are just $100 for all five shows.  Single tickets will go on-sale approximately six to eight weeks prior to each performance opening.

Shows for the Summer Repertory Season are free.
