Carnegie Announces 2021-22 Theatrical Season


The Carnegie announced its 2021-22 season on Tuesday, featuring two well-known musicals, a story of Judy Garland, and a brand new play set to premiere on the Covington stage.

Little Shop of Horrors opens the season August 13-22, telling the story of Seymour, a down-on-his-luck floral assistant pining for the love of his coworker, Audrey, and a murderous plant.

End of the Rainbow, a telling of Judy Garland's career comeback attempt in 1968, runs September 10-19.

The comedic drama features some of the famed songstress/actress's most beloved songs.

The Sound of Music, the beloved musical of the Von Trapp family and their governess in Nazi-era Austria, runs January 29-February 13.

The season ends April 1-16 with a collaboration between the Carnegie and the Northern Kentucky University School of the Arts: a new play by Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati Producing Artistic Director D. Lynn Meyers.

NKU students will work with Meyers to workshop and refine a new script throughout the academic year and then it will premiere during NKU's YES (year-end series) Festival of new plays.
