Introducing City Theatre of Independence’s 44th Season

It is an exciting time for all those involved with CTI. The Board of Directors has just announced the 2023-2024 season’s shows. Over the past few months, the Season Selection Committee has been collecting show suggestions from its membership to be considered for the upcoming season. Members were asked to fill out a Google Form and submit musicals and plays of any genre that they would be interested in seeing and/or participating in for the next season.

The Committee and Board met to discuss all show suggestions. Each show was categorized by style of show (musical or straight play), and then categorized further by genre (musical, comedy, mystery/thriller, drama). At the January Board meeting, each category was culled down to three to four shows each voted on by present Board and Season Selection Committee members. From that list, the 15 people, composed of the Committee and Board of Directors, voted for two musicals and one straight play from each of the categories.

Instead of making one big announcement once results had been tallied, the marketing committee decided to play a game on social media with CTI followers. Every day for five days, marketing posted a video to the CTI Facebook page with clues and followers were asked to comment on the video with their guess as to what show they thought it was. The first person to comment with the correct show was deemed the winner, rewarded with a free ticket to the show they correctly guessed.

The Board of Directors is proud to announce the shows for CTI’s 44th season:

  • “9 to 5 the Musical” (September 8-10 & September 15-17, 2023)
  • “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” (November 3-5 & November 10-12, 2023)
  • “Arsenic and Old Lace” (January 5-7 & January 12-14, 2024)
  • “The Diary of Anne Frank” (March 28-30 & April 15-17, 2024)
  • “Little Shop of Horrors” (May 31- June 2 & June 7-9, 2024)
