Mainstage Summer 2023 Lineup Descriptions
We hope you will join us for this fabulous Summer 2023 Mainstage Season!
The Summer 2023 Season will open with Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me, a witty, relevant, and hilarious examination of the U.S. Constitution and its effects on four generations of women. This season kick-off will be a co-production with the Kitchen Theatre Company, in a landmark collaboration between the two treasured Ithaca-area professional theatres.

In July, Billy Elliot: The Musical will take the stage, with music by the legendary Elton John and a book and lyrics by Lee Hall, telling a powerful story about discovering passion, following your dreams, and the challenges and inspirations that meet you every step of the way. This hit musical, based on the beloved film of the same name, provides the opportunity to showcase some of Ithaca’s young artists in its pivotal central roles.

The season will close with a musical spectacular celebrating 49 years of Hangar Theatre history. The Impossible Dream: A Broadway Pops Concert will feature artists and songs from a variety of the 53 iconic musicals performed over the last 49 years at the Hangar Theatre. This momentous performance, which will feature a fuller and more robust orchestral accompaniment than typically experienced on the Hangar stage, will celebrate the end of an exciting 49th season and will lead the Hangar ever-so grandly to its upcoming 50th Anniversary year.
