SUmmer Mainstage 2024

The Hangar Theatre’s 50th Mainstage season features three musical theatre productions.

One runaway hit currently charming theatre-goers around the country; one stunning revival of an award-winning musical; and one hilarious, boundary-stretching world premiere.  Join us this summer!

Ride the Cyclone

June 20-29
Music, Book, and Lyrics by Brooke Maxwell & Jacob Richmond

In this hilarious and outlandish musical, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster.  When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other: the chance to return to life.  Moving and memorable, Ride the Cyclone will remind you to seize each and every day of a thrilling, unexpected, wacky, and joyful existence.

“High-spirited and just plain fun from start to finish.” –New York Times

Ragtime: The Musical

July 11-20
Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, & Book by Terrence McNally
Presented in Association with Flint Repertory Theatre

This timeless musical masterpiece celebrates the soaring sounds and can-do spirit of America at the dawn of the last century.  To the syncopated rhythms of a hopeful new age, this unforgettable theatrical tapestry interweaves the delights of vaudeville, baseball, and old-time nickelodeons with the hurly-burly of labor rallies and racial unrest, tracking the lives of an enterprising Jewish immigrant, a courageous Harlem pianist, and a conflicted upper-class wife in a jubilant, inclusive tribute to the American Dream.  An epic tale, adapted from E. L. Doctorow’s sweeping novel, beautifully rendered on the Hangar’s intimate stage.

“A triumph for the stage.” –TIME magazine

The Adirondack Theatre Festival World Premiere Production of

Todd vs. The Titanic

July 27-August 3
Music by Joe Kinosian, Lyrics by Kellen Blair, & Book by Scott Rothman

In a post-apocalyptic near-future, an undisclosed “event” has wiped out most of the human race, including every cast member of a new musical about the sinking of the Titanic.  Everyone, that is, except for Todd, who was cast in the show’s smallest role.  As the world burns, Todd claws his way into the abandoned, bombed-out theater to perform the entire musical alone–without his partner, without his fellow cast members, and possible as the last person on earth.  Join us for the world premiere of this hilarious and heartfelt new musical comedy!
