The 5th Avenue Theatre Announces 2023/24 Season: Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Cambodian Rock Band

SEATTLE, Wash. – February 27, 2023 – The 5th Avenue Theatre is thrilled to announce its 2023/24 season, which features an eclectic collection of shows that will combine for an alluring year of theater that explores the power of dreams. The season lineup includes: Disney’s The Little Mermaid, the splashy hit musical based on the movie of the same name; Cambodian Rock Band, a co-production with ACT - A Contemporary Theatre that traverses the resilient bond of a family and the enduring power of music; Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, a timeless musical full of heart; Something’s Afoot, a hysterical murder mystery farce, Spring Awakening, a poignant musical that explores the trials and tribulations of adolescence; 1776, a special engagement of the Broadway National Tour; and Clue, a cult-favorite play based on the iconic 1985 movie and classic Hasbro board game.

“There is nothing more powerful than a dream,” said Producing Artistic Director Bill Berry. “This season we’ve combined a selection of shows that examines the power of always searching for something better than the here and now. Whether it’s about a mermaid who is searching to be part of the human world, a survivor of the Khmer Rouge who is processing past and future, or a teenager persevering through tragedy and dreaming of hope for the future, dreams are what keep us going even when we feel like the world is against us.”

The 2023/24 season runs August 2, 2023 to July 21, 2024. Five-show season subscriptions include Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Cambodian Rock Band, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, Something’s Afoot, and Spring Awakening and cost $209 - $799 per person. Subscriptions include free parking, extra ticket discounts, and concession perks. Additionally, five-show season subscribers have the opportunity to add either or both 1776 and Clue to their package for an additional cost of $49 - $161.50 per show.

“This season is a celebration of musical theater’s power to take us to different worlds and revel in the thrill of curiosity and adventure,” said Associate Artistic Director Jay Woods. “We are ecstatic to take audiences on a journey through the emotional landscapes that explore our desires, our pain, our joy and our unyielding desire to dream of a better future.”
