The Osceola Center for the Arts has announced its 2013-2014 Broadway Series, which will include four musicals and two plays.
"We've created a season filled with classic stories and contemporary pieces and have shows that will appeal to different audiences all throughout the year," says artistic director Jeremiah Krivinchuk.
The shows, performed and directed by local residents, will take place at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays at 2 p.m. Sundays. During the Christmas holiday season, The Center will also offer Saturday matinees for the musical "Meet Me In St. Louis." The Center will continue to offer select Thursday evening performances for each show, with special ticket pricing for students, teachers and school employees.
Reserved seating for regular shows will be $21 for adults, $18 for seniors and $15 for students.
Dinner shows, children's theater, concerts, classes and free art exhibits make up the rest of The Center's 2013-2014 calendar of events.
The Center has been producing plays and musicals since the 1960s and serves as a home to actors, musicians and artists of all ages. It's at 2411 E. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, Kissimmee.
