RBTL announces 2016-17 season 

The Rochester Broadway Theatre League on Thursday made its 2016-17 season announcement, including six major productions and three special performances. The current season continues with "Matilda," April 12 through April 17; Stomp on April 22 and April 23; and "Dirty Dancing" on May 10 through May 15.

Opening the 2016-17 season will be "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," running September 27 through October 2. The Broadway production -- which is based on the Mark Haddon novel about a socially awkward boy investigating the death of his neighbor's dog -- will launch its first US tour with these Rochester dates.

"Finding Neverland" will follow on October 25 through October 30. Based on the 2004 movie of the same name, the musical weaves together the stories of Peter Pan and his creator J.M Barrie as he finds inspiration for the boy who never grew up.

For the holiday season, "Cirque Dreams Holidaze" -- complete with snowmen, penguins, and ice queens performing back-breaking bends -- will appear December 13 through December 18.

A new production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic "The Sound of Music" is currently on tour and will make its Rochester stop on February 28 through March 5, 2017.

Making a popular, much-requested return, "Wicked" will have an almost two-week run at the Auditorium Theatre on March 29 through April 9. The musical last appeared at RBTL in 2013.

Closing the season will be "Cabaret," May 2 through May 7. The Kit Kat Klub will be on tour for its 50th anniversary during this performance.

Also announced where three special engagements: "Jersey Boys" has been announced for dates starting November 30; "Mamma Mia" will be staged in January 2017; and Riverdance will perform in March.

Season ticket packages, beginning at $229, are on sale now to renewing and new subscribers. Call 222-5000, or check for more information. Individual tickets are not yet on sale.
