Hadestown at Cape Fear Community College's Wilson Center

Hadestown

Cleaning up during the 2018/19 awards season, plucky folk opera Hadestown garnered eight Tony Awards (including the coveted Tony for Best Musical), four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards, and a Drama League Award. This came as no surprise given the production received much acclaim during both its Off-Broadway and Broadway runs, praised for its soaring imagination, vibrant retelling of a classic story, and a sumptuous score that evokes smoky New Orleans jazz and bubbling Americana-tinged folk. Don't miss out when the lauded musical hits the road on this hotly anticipated national tour!

Dear Evan Hansen at Cape Fear Community College's Wilson Center

Dear Evan Hansen

Following its hugely successful run at Broadway's Music Box Theater, this darkly comic musical is touring across the country once more. The six-time Tony-winning, poignant and thought-provoking production has received rave reviews from critics for its unexpectedly touching portrayal of misunderstood youth, young love, and the search for acceptance, with a score from the composing team behind 2017's Academy Award-winning La-La Land, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul.

The Book of Mormon at Cape Fear Community College's Wilson Center

The Book of Mormon

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and leading New York Times critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", The Book of Mormon's 2011 debut was a pop culture moment. Still enjoying concurrent engagements in London's West End and on Broadway, the bad boy of musical theatre remains a top draw, leaving audiences either outraged or in pain from laughing to this day. Now heading out across the country, don't miss your chance to catch this modern classic. Just be prepared for the lewd, the crude, and downright naughty songs and antics along the way...
