DAYTON, OHIO: The Human Race Theatre Company has announced its 2015–16 season, its 29th season, full of well-known shows and authors, including Terrence McNally and Tennessee Williams.
First comes The Full Monty (Sept. 10–Oct. 4), the musical by McNally and David Yazbek based on the film about six unemployed steelworkers who put together a male strip show.
Then comes Robert Harling’s female-bonding tale Steel Magnolias (Nov. 5–29), set at a hair salon that’s the hub of the town gossip.
Tennessee Williams’s classic The Glass Menagerie (Feb. 4–21, 2016) is next, followed by comedian Lewis Black’s play about a wedding gone wrong, One Slight Hitch (April 7–24, 2016).
Closing out the season is another piece by McNally, Master Class (June 9–26, 2016), which imagines a session with opera diva Maria Callas and three unfortunate pupils.
The Human Race Theatre Company was founded in 1986 and produces for the Victoria Theatre’s Broadway Series, the Musical Theatre Workshop series, and special event programming. The Human Race also maintains education and outreach programs for children, teens and adults, as well as artist residencies in area schools.
