Church Hill Theatre (CHT) proudly announces an eclectic and significant 2019 season of plays in its historic art-deco playhouse in Church Hill. As always, CHT strives for a mix of contemporary and classic, laughs and tears, music and words that may change our lives.
The season will begin early in 2019 with the ever-popular comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde. It will be followed by a March production of “Watch on the Rhine,” a gripping drama about the impending Nazi threat by the 20th century playwright Lillian Hellman. The June musical, a highlight of the Delmarva arts scene, will be the rock classic “Jesus Christ, Superstar.” September will feature a play-with-music, “33 Variations,” by Moises Kauffman. In it, a present-day musicologist and Beethoven himself help bring meaning to some of the composer’s most important piano pieces. The season will end in November with Feydeau’s antic farce “A Flea in Her Ear,” in a modern script by David Ives. Each production will run for three weekends, with evening performances on Friday and Saturday and a matinee on Sunday.
