The new season opens on Nov. 5, with “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the Musical,” an international hit featuring more than 500 dazzling Tony Award winning costumes and closes June 15, 2014, with the mega-hit,”Wicked.”

Also on the season are “Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story,” loaded with classic hit songs by the legendary artist; “Flashdance – The Musical,” an electrifying dance-filled musical based on the hit 1983 movie; the wildly-popular phenomenon Blue Man Group and the Broadway smash, “Sister Act” with music by Alan Menken.

“Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the Musical,” runs Nov. 5 to 10.This outrageously fun show tells the uplifting story of a trio of friends, on a road trip of a lifetime. They hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed. The show features a hit parade of dance-floor favorites including “It’s Raining Men,” “Finally” and “I Will Survive.”

Dec. 27 to Jan.2 presents “Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story.” In just three years, Buddy Holly set the music world on fire and forever changed the face and sound of rock and roll. “Buddy– The Buddy Holly Story,” explodes onto the stage in this jukebox musical fully loaded with classics like “Peggy Sue,” “Oh Boy,” “That’ll Be the Day,” “Well All Right,” “Not Fade Away” and  many more. It charts Holly’s meteoric climb, legendary adventures and tragic fall on that fateful day the music died, with an encore that will have you on your feet and dancing in the aisles.

“Flashdance – The Musical,” will run Feb. 4 to 9. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 1983 hit film, the pop culture phenomenon of “Flashdance” is now live on stage. With electrifying dance at its core, it’s the inspiring and unforgettable story of Alex Owens, a Pittsburgh steel mill welder by day and a bar dancer by night with dreams of one day becoming a professional performer. It features a score that includes the biggest hit songs from the movie, including the Academy Award-winning title song “Flashdance – What a Feeling,” “Maniac,” “Gloria,” “Manhunt,” and “I Love Rock & Roll.” In addition to these hits, 16 brand-new songs have been written for the musical.

Blue Man Group performs March 11 to 16. Blue Man Group consistently thrills audiences with its high-octane theatrical experience. Escape the ordinary and surround yourself in an explosion of comedy, music and technology. Although it is impossible to describe, audiences agree that Blue Man Group is an intensely exciting and wildly outrageous show that leaves the entire audience in a blissful, euphoric state. With no spoken language, it is perfect for people of all ages, languages and cultures. It is now on the road for its first U.S. theatrical tour.

April 8 to 12 brings “Sister Act,” Broadway’s feel-amazing musical comedy smash. Featuring original music by Oscar winner Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” ” The Little Mermaid,” “Little Shop of Horrors”), “Sister Act” is the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look — a convent. Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

The Broadway season ends with “Wicked,” May 28 to June 15. Back by popular demand, when it last played Sacramento, “Wicked” broke box office records and sold out in record time. It is the winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards. Long before that girl from Kansas arrived in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for a completely satisfying musical.

Season tickets are available only at the Wells Fargo Pavilion box office, 1419 H St. in Sacramento or by calling 916-557-1999.

Broadway Sacramento, presented by the nonprofit California Musical Theatre, is the largest performing arts event in the Capital Region. Broadway Sacramento is sponsored by Wells Fargo. All performances are at the Community Center Theater, 1301 L St. in downtown Sacramento.
