The Smith Center long ago announced that smash hit Wicked would kick off its first full Broadway Las Vegas season—and local musical theater geeks gushed over the popular production.
More exciting news came today, as the recently opened performing arts center released the lineup of shows that will follow the Tony-nominated musical, as well as touring productions of The Color Purple, Memphis, Million Dollar Quartet and Mary Poppins arriving at the Smith Center this spring and summer. The 2012-2013 season, which begins in the fall, will include The Addams Family (November 20-25), Anything Goes (February 5-10), West Side Story (February 26-March 3), Shrek the Musical (March 19-24), Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (April 16-24), Billy Elliot the Musical (March 14-19), Catch Me If You Can (June 18-23), La Cage aux Folles (August 14-19) and Green Day’s American Idiot (June 11-16).
As for tickets, the Smith Center offers an eight-show package that starts at $207. That package does not include American Idiot or La Cage aux Folles, though both can be added starting at $24 per ticket. The package will be available in early April, with tickets for individual shows going on sale at a later date.
