WESTPORT — Curtain going up.

Five productions are planned at the Westport Country Playhouse for the theater’s 93rd season next year.

Four of the 2023 productions scheduled are:

“Ain’t Misbehavin’,” a musical celebrating jazz great Fats Waller, will be performed April 11-29.

“Dial ‘M’ for Murder,” a reimagining of Alfred Hitchcock’s suspenseful thriller of blackmail and revenge, set May 30 through June 17.

“Antigone,” a new translation and adaptation of Sophocles’ drama, will premiere at the playhouse from Aug. 29 through Sept. 16.

“School Girls; or, The African Mean Girls Play,” a “Gossip Girl”-inspired comedy, produced Oct. 24 through Nov. 11.

A production slated for July 11 -29 will be announced at a later date, according to a statement from the theater.

The productions will return to three-week runs next year, replacing two-week schedules this year, and more 7 p.m. curtain times will be offered.

Current season ticket holders renewing their subscription by Sept. 23 will receive a guest pass good for one free ticket to any 2023 production to share, playhouse officials said.

Season ticket packages for new subscribers go on sale in mid-October. Single tickets will be available early next year.  

“Inspired by our audience, we’ve decided to lift up everything we love about theater and find joy together,” Mark Lamos, playhouse artistic director, who next year begins his 15th season at the theater, said about the 2023 productions in a publicity release.
