The league’s 56th “Magical” season has “six spectacular productions that promise to captivate, mesmerize, exhilarate and excite audiences,” league membership director Barry Sublett said.
The season will open Nov. 20-22 with Academy Award-winner Woody Allen’s hilarious “Bullets Over Broadway.” The plot line involves a young playwright who needs financial backing for his next show. The playwright accepts an offer ‘he can’t refuse’ from a gangster.

Disney’s enchanting “Beauty and the Beast” is scheduled for Jan. 29-31, 2016. The stage show is based on the animated feature film and features lavish sets and costumes.
Dust off the disco ball and bellbottom polyesters for “Mamma Mia!,” the tribute to music by Abba, including “Dancing Queen” and “Take a Chance on Me.” Show dates are Feb. 19-21, 2016.
In “Mamma Mia!,” a mother and daughter realize that love isn’t an easy lesson for any generation. The show is intended for ages 13 and older.
