Carnegie announces 2021-22 theater season

In yet another sign of relative normalcy, The Carnegie has announced its 2021-22 theater season, beginning outdoors in late summer before a winter return to the Carnegie Theatre.

The season opens in August with outdoor performances of “Little Shop of Horrors.” A month later, in September, audience members will see Judy Garland as she navigates a comeback in “End of the Rainbow,” previously scheduled as the final production of The Carnegie’s 2019-20 season that was canceled due to COVID. And in January, families are welcome to return to a winter production of “The Sound of Music.” Closing out the season in April will be a new play by D. Lynn Meyers, in which The Carnegie and NKU School of the Arts will work together to produce a new play by Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati’s producing artistic director.

Subscriptions and single tickets for the 2021-22 Theatre Season are on sale now. Full season subscriptions are $106 and $102 for Carnegie members. Pick-three subscriptions are available for $82-87, depending on selected titles. Subscriptions may be purchased through The Carnegie Box Office at 859-957-1940, Tuesday – Friday, 12 – 5 pm, or online at thecarnegie.com.

The Carnegie’s 2021-22 Theatre Series is presented by the Otto M. Budig Family Foundation.
