ISSAQUAH, Wash. – February 28, 2024 – Artistic Director Adam Immerwahr and Managing Director Laura Lee proudly announce Village Theatre’s 2024-2025 Mainstage season featuring four amazing musicals and one criminally good play, performed by some of the top talent in the region. From timeless classics to modern masterpieces, the new season promises to transport, entertain, and dazzle audiences throughout northwest Washington.
Village’s 2024-2025 season begins with Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot—a beloved golden age musical with a score like no other, in a bold new production that will cut to the heart of the story as never before. Next up is Legally Blonde, a hilarious, exuberant, and dance-filled adaptation of the film that is so good it should be illegal! Village's winter production is Dial M for Murder, a stylish thriller chock full of devious twists and turns that will keep patrons on the edge of their seats. By subscriber demand, Village will finally be mounting their own version of Jersey Boys—the sensational story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. The season will close with The Color Purple, a soul-stirring and triumphant musical infused with jazz, gospel, ragtime and the blues – based on Alice Walker’s unforgettable, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
“I am thrilled by the season of art and entertainment that Village Theatre will be bringing to audiences throughout Western Washington,” said Immerwahr. “As one of the largest professional theater companies in our region, Village strives to produce captivating, entertaining, and heart-filling musicals and plays — performed by the top tier talent of our region (and beyond). I can’t wait to share these truly magical, inspiring, and dazzling productions with you and your entire family. I’ll see you in the lobby!”

They were just four guys from Jersey until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. Go behind the music and inside the world of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award-winning true-life musical phenomenon, Jersey Boys. This scintillating new production promises electrifying performances of chart-topping hits including: “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Dawn,” “My Eyes Adore You,” and so many more!
Audience Note: Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons sang like angels and cursed like Jersey teenagers. Expect plenty of great tunes and adult language.
