Bucks County Playhouse announces 2024 mainstage season


Bucks County Playhouse’s 85th season kicks off in May with a new production of Michael Frayn’s outrageous farce, “Noises Off,” and is anchored by a world premiere musical, “Last of the Red Hot Mamas.”

The season will also feature new productions of “Grease,” and “Anastasia: The Musical.” In addition, the Playhouse will revive its production of “The Rocky Horror Show,” which broke box office records last October.

“For 2024, we’re taking a fresh look at three of the greats: ‘Noises Off,’ ‘Grease,’ and for the holidays, ‘Anastasia,’” said Alexander Fraser, producing director.

“In between, we are proud to produce another world premiere, the new musical ‘Last of the Red Hot Mamas.’ We hope these shows will honor the Playhouse’s history in presenting first-class productions of well-loved revivals while also fostering new works that reflect the diversity of the modern American theater.”

The 2024 season comes on the heels of a 2023 season when two productions broke box office records. “The Rocky Horror Show” and “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas,” which became the top-selling title in the Playhouse’s storied history.

“We are happy to offer a starting ticket price of $39 with the hopes that it will make theater accessible to as many people as possible,” said Managing Director Adele Adkins.

The season will begin May 17 with “Noises Off!” directed by Bucks County Playhouse Artistic Associate Hunter Foster.

Jennifer Cody, who will perform the role of Dottie, and John Bolton, who play Freddy, both appeared in Playhouse productions of “Company” and “The Rocky Horror Show.” They will be joined by Marilu Henner, reprising her performance of Belinda, a role she played 32 years ago in Peter Bogdanovich’s film adaptation.

“We’re thrilled to present an original musical, ‘Last of the Red Hot Mamas,’ about the pioneering comedienne, Sophie Tucker,” said Producer Josh Fiedler. A star in Vaudeville, on Broadway and in the Ziegfeld Follies, the full-figured Tucker was known for her risqué songs.

Closing out the summer is a fresh take on one of the world’s most popular musicals, “Grease!” Foster will return to direct the show that he appeared in on Broadway in the 1994 revival.

The 2024 season will conclude with a new production of the Broadway musical, “Anastasia.”

Season tickets are now available at $240 for a four-show package (including fees). Single-show tickets and group rates are also available. For tickets and information, visit or call 215-862-2121.
