The Wicked Witch is on trial for her crimes in the land of Once Upon a Time in this madcap musical featuring several favorite characters from many fairy tales. The cast of characters includes the Fairy Godmother as the judge, the Three Little Pigs as bailiffs, and Jack the Giant Killer as the guard. Witnesses for the prosecution and defense provide a variety of toe-tapping tunes such as a swinging Big Bad Wolf in "The Wolf of Wall Street," an operatic Rapunzel in "I Love to Sing," and a rocking Gingerbread Man in "Go, Gingie, Go!" The Wicked Witch herself casts a musical spell with "Escape Velocity." The audience acts as jury in this trial and gets to determine the fate of the Wicked Witch. Guilty or innocent, you can be assured that this show is "Wicked Awesome."

Showtimes are 7:30pm Friday and Saturday, the Sunday matinee is at 2pm. Parking is available on Elm Street, or in the parking deck behind the Southbridge Town Hall.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for for over 60 and youth under 18. Tickets may be reserved by calling Gateway at 508-764-4531. Online credit card ticket sales are also available at: HERE

 

FYI, we've added a new feature titled 'Audition Corner' to our Auditions page, with regularly updated tips on how to prepare and (hopefully) get that role! Check it out!

 

    

 

Gateway to the Future Fund

This fund has been established to cover all costs associated with finding a new performance space in Southbridge. We are currently exploring a few different options, and we are anticipating this could take at least two years to find and renovate a new permanent home. We expect the cost to do this could be upwards of $500,000. In the next year we will be holding several fundraisers, reaching out to local businesses in the area, and applying for grants. You can also donate directly on our Facebook Page. Login to your FB account, go to to FB/GatewayPlayers and The "Donate" button is located on the right, below the cover photo. All donations are tax deductible. We thank you very much for your continued support of Gateway Players Theatre.
