In 2021, the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre’s musicals-in-concert series is returning to the stage. This series will include a four-show line-up; each one night only concert versions of shows that will provide a new way for patrons to experience live (or streaming) theatre. The Overture 2021 season consists of Nine, Once on This Island, Chess, Sunday in the Park with George, and White Christmas.
