Citadel Theatre’s 2024-25 Season:

The Cottage – directed by Jack Hickey

First Rehearsal – Aug. 12, 2024

Show Dates – Sept. 13 – Oct. 13, 2024

Show Description: Straight from Broadway, making its Chicago-theatre premiere, this recent hit directed by Jason Alexander starring Eric McCormick (Will and Grace) is a brand-new, side splitting romp. This outrageous tale of sex, betrayal, and desire is one woman’s attempt to expose her latest affair to both her husband-and to her lover’s wife. Surprising and hilarious web of secrets unravels in this ridiculously funny romantic comedy.

Dames at Sea – directed by Gregg Dennhardt

First Rehearsal – Oct. 6, 2024

Show Dates – Nov. 15 – Dec. 15, 2024

Show Description: Musical Parody of large, flashy 1930’s Busby Berkeley-style musical in which a chorus girl, newly arrived off the bus from the Midwest to New York City steps into a role on broadway and becomes a star. Bernadette Peters played the role of Ruby when it debuted in 1966. And she later toured the role at the Academy Playhouse in Lake Forest.

I and You – directed by Scott Shallenbarger

Show Dates – Feb. 21 – Mar. 23, 2025

Show Description: This extraordinary touching story is written by the same playwright who brought us Silent Sky this last season. Charming, mysterious, and poetic in the truest sense of the word. Lauren Gunderson’s I and You is a study of the beauty, the agony, and the mystery of the human connection.

A Jukebox for the Algonquin – directed by Scott Westerman

Show Dates – Apr. 18 – May 18, 2025

Show Description: A Chicago Theatre premiere! All the residents of Placid Pines Senior Care Center want is a jukebox, but that simple request leads to a side-splitting, roller-coaster journey.
