The show is rarely produced in community theater and hasn't been see in the Worcester area in over 20 years!

The show will be presented on June 19, 20 and 21.

Based on Jean Poiret’s 1973 French play of the same name, the play has inspired a film and then a film adaptation of the musical version (“The Birdcage) was also made. The multi-Tony award winning La Cage Aux Folles is a musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart.

(This production is based on the 2010 Broadway revival production.)
