Nov 07, 2014 04:57PM ● By Erica Shames

PRiMA Theatre - Lancaster, PA, a nonprofit local theatrical production organization, has announced its fifth anniversary season. The 2015 season features two creative cabarets, an immersive theatrical experience, and two momentous musicals, rarely produced.

Money-saving ticket subscriptions and tax-deductible sponsorship opportunities can be found at or by calling 717-327-5124. PRiMA productions are produced at a variety of local venues with dates announced approximately three months prior to each production.

The season includes the following productions:


A special anniversary cabaret featuring PRiMA’s finest talent and the unforgettable show-stopping tunes from the past five seasons.

SHOSHANA BEAN: Concert & Master Class

Broadway’s green witch lands in Lancaster for an exclusive solo concert and public master class. Best known for playing Elphaba in Wicked, Shoshana is one of Jason Robert Brown’s favorite singers. From Hairspray to Godspell, singing with Michael Jackson to the Enchanted movie soundtrack, this powerhouse vocalist brings her vocal prowess and unique experience to the PRiMA stage.


Chess is a monumental musical about political and romantic gameplay. By the composers of Mamma Mia and the lyricist of Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita, this intense story is woven together in what Time Magazine calls ‘one of the best rock scores ever produced!’ Join us for a fresh anniversary revival of one of PRiMA’s early artistic successes.


From the composer of Wicked comes this expansive and heartfelt musical. Loosely based on the stories from the Book of Genesis, Children of Eden is a tale about the challenges of parenting, breaking generational patterns, and the power of second chances. Experience this moving musical in concert staging within the magnificent St. James Church in Lancaster City.


Celebrate All Hallow’s Eve weekend with this chic cabaret featuring songs from the Great White Way’s darkest characters.


Mrs. Claus is throwing a wild, theatrical party for the holidays...and you’re invited! Join the sassy leader of the elves for an immersive experience; a live version of a sugar-induced North Pole dream.
