Broadway shows featuring Elvis, '80s rock music, catechism classes, one of "the greatest love" stories ever told and a Cirque Dreams production are coming to the Tri-Cities.
Windermere Theatres announced its 2012-13 Broadway series Monday.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze kicks off the series Nov. 21 with an international cast of more than 30 multi-talented and brilliantly costumed artists, followed by Rock of Ages, a sultry story of a small town girl who meets a big city rocker at the Los Angeles club of the same name. The show will feature a mix of '80s music, including Journey, Styx, Night Ranger and Whitesnake.
Elvis Lives is on stage Feb. 27 and takes the audience on a musical journey through The King's life, music and style.
West Side Story -- which comes to town March 20 -- is the Broadway musical often called the greatest love story of all time. It racked up a bundle of Tony Awards as well as Oscar awards for the film version.
Then on May 18, it'll be that uproariously funny Late Nite Catechism that likely will inspire fond as well as fearsome memories for those raised in Catholic schools. The story line follows the events that happen during a catechism class taught by a nun.
Season tickets for all five shows are from $135 to $325, depending on seat location. A four-show series also is available, which excludes Rock of Ages, with season passes from $105 to $260.
"The four-show series would leave off Rock of Ages because of its adult content," said Jude Strode of the Toyota Center.
Individual ticket prices will become available as each of the shows draws closer, she added.
"We are just selling subscriptions at this time," Strode said. Those series tickets can be purchased online at yourtoyota center.com or call 737-3722.
