Luna Gale (May 10 to 28, 2017)
Award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman (Dollhouse) explores the deeply human complexity at the heart of a seemingly clear-cut custody case. Caroline, a veteran social worker, is pushed to extremes as she fights to reunite two recovering teenage meth addicts with their infant daughter. When family history and religious devotion complicate what had seemed like an obvious solution, faith meets doubt and the best intentions meet reality as the people who care about baby Luna struggle to protect her future.
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (May 24 to June 25, 2017)
The beloved film and literary classic comes to the stage in a gripping tale of love, hope and revenge in the lawless Wild West. Ransome Foster, a young scholar from New York, travels west in search of a new life and finds love in the dusty town of Twotrees - but not before he makes an enemy of the vicious outlaw Liberty Valance. As Valance’s reign of terror escalates, Foster must make a choice: to turn and run, or to stand for what he believes.
Always ... Patsy Cline (June 28 to August 20, 2017)
In honor of Stages 40th anniversary, we’re reviving one of the most requested productions in Stages' history! Penned by Stages’ Founding Artistic Director Ted Swindley, this international hit musical had its world premiere at Stages in 1988, and has been winning hearts ever since. Based on a true story, this tribute to the legendary country music singer and her friendship with devoted Houston fan Louise Seger is rich with down-home country humor and includes 27 of Cline’s unforgettable hit songs.
Woody Sez, The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie (July 26 to September 3, 2017)
Legendary singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie transformed folk music into a powerful vehicle for political expression with hits like “This Land is Your Land,” “Bound for Glory” and “The Ballad of Tom Joad.” In this thrilling new musical, Guthrie’s timeless songs reveal this iconic artist’s bold vision for the America he deeply loved. Ben Hope, star of Stages’ 2011 production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway, returns as Woody.
Balls (October 11 to 29, 2017)
It’s 1973, and Houston’s Astrodome is playing host to one of the biggest pop cultural events of all time as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs face-off in 'The Battle of the Sexes' tennis match! Created in conjunction with New York‘s acclaimed One Year Lease Theater Company, Balls is a spectacular new work that bounces one of the most memorable tennis events of all-time off the cultural debates it ignited. True to OYL’s high-intensity physical approach, the production features a shot-by-shot re-imagining of the entire match, in a carnival-like atmosphere! This World Premiere is must-see theatre from one of the nation’s most promising new companies.
A Midnight Clear, A Musical Tale of Christmas (November 8 to December 24, 2017)
It’s Christmas Eve, 1964, and a snowstorm threatens to cancel a concert hosted by the Sisters of the Poor Sacred Heart. But when a mysterious stranger and a stranded motorist arrive at their chapel, the Sisters find that the songs of Christmas have far more power than they had imagined. Stages Artistic Director Kenn McLaughlin and composer David Nehls follow up their smash hit I’ll Be Home for Christmas with a joyous new musical commissioned especially for Stages.

Packed with zany characters, audience interaction and plenty of toe-tapping music, it’s spectacular fun for the whole family.
Alma en venta (Soul on Sale) (January 24 to February 11, 2018)
Painter Arcadio Rogers Rodríguez has made quite a name for himself crafting images. But what does it take to really bring a canvas to life? A visit from your dead mother? A Faustian deal with a devilish muse? Alma en venta/ Soul on Sale is a lyrical, magical-realist examination of the cost one Latino artist has to pay to save a soul.
Ann (February 14 to April 8, 2018)
Indomitable Texas Governor Ann Richards is brought to life by the incomparable Sally Edmundson in a one-woman tour-de-force.
