Theatre Coppell Announces its 2018-2019 Season!

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

2018-2019 Season Details



Reel Men, the Fitzhugh Brothers, by Ron L. Chapman

August 17 – September 2, 2018


Three grown brothers hope to mend their relationships with each

other and decide the best way is to go on a fishing trip together. The

outcome is both funny and touching. Theatre Coppell audiences will

remember this original show from a limited run last season. Its

popularity has prompted a return as a major part of our season.



Ordinary People, Judith Guest’s book dramatized by Nancy Gilsenan


October 5 – 21, 2018


A young man, Conrad, is still haunted by the traumatic death of his

older brother, and both situations – the death of their popular,

handsome son and the mental wounds of their remaining son – cause

family upheaval and division. Conrad starts to mend, but his parents

may not be so lucky. Audiences will remember the movie version

starring Mary Tyler Moore, Donald Sutherland, and Timothy Hutton.



Inspecting Carol, by Daniel Sullivan & The Seattle Repertory Theatre


November 30 – December 16, 2018


A small professional theatre has been doing A Christmas Carol every

Christmas, mainly to raise money. Ticket sales are down, however,

and their regular cast is growing older and less suited for their parts.

Typical of their problems is Tiny Tim, now 17 years old and a bit too

big to be carried on Cratchit’s shoulders. The expected arrival of an

evaluator from the National Endowment of the Arts only complicates

things and everything that can go wrong, does. It’s funny as the

Dickens.


Arsenic and Old Lace, by Joseph Kesselring


February 1 – 17, 2019


Two sweet little old ladies think they’re doing mercy work when they

poison lonely older men who come to rent a spare room in their

house. They even have a special recipe that requires arsenic and just

a touch of cyanide in their elderberry wine. Meanwhile, their brother

who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt and their nephew who discovers

their charitable hobby must contend with the arrival of another brother,

who just happens to look like Boris Karloff.



The Wizard of Oz, Frank Baum’s story dramatized by Robert Batson


April 5 – 21, 2019


A tornado does more than uproot trees and scatter crops in Kansas. It

brings back to Theatre Coppell one of the most classic stories ever.

Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Lion, and the Tinman head down

the yellow brick road to visit the great and powerful Wizard,

encouraged by Glinda the Good Witch and the Munchkins, but

hampered along the way, of course, by the Wicked Witch.



Baby, Book by Sybille Pearson, Music by David Shire, Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.


July 12 – 28, 2019


One young couple is having a baby and ponders whether to get married; a second slightly older couple is trying but can’t have a baby; the final couple, still older, is having a “surprise” baby.  Great music and an interesting intertwined plot make this musical a rare gem, continuing Theatre Coppell’s string of little-known shows and local community theatre premiers.
