Shows for the upcoming season at the Garden Theatre have been announced.

The blockbuster hit, “Hello Dolly!” will be opening the 2020-21 season in August, followed by “Ugly Lies the Bone” in October. During the holidays, the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” will hit the stage. The Tony Award-winning musical “Parade” will be presented in January, and that will be followed by “A Raisin in the Sun” in February. Disney’s “Beauty and the Best” is set to hit the stage in April, and the Garden Theatre will be closing out the season with “The Bodyguard” in July.

“TheGarden Theatre is dedicated to providing a home for artists and audiences alike by presenting a diverse program of live theatre that represents a wide variety of theatrical voices and viewpoints,” said Artistic Director Joseph C. Walsh. “Come home to the Garden as we present a season of homecomings. Each offering in this thrilling theatrical collage shares a unique story investigating the many definitions of the word ‘home’ and what the word means for each of us as individuals. I am excited to be sharing these stories, characters and voices with our community and hope the themes presented in the season will inspire our community to converse, reflect, question and expand their definition of the word Home.”
