On Monday, to roll out the season, Proctors posted videos of CEO Philip Morris speaking with John Gray and Lydia Kulbida from News10 on Proctors’ stage.

“Probably the biggest sign that the Proctors Collaborative is back is our ability to announce a new season,” Morris said in a statement. “Imagine, a Disney tech is returning with ‘Aladdin,’ ‘Hamilton’ returns, and as many Tony awarded shows will be here as ever before.”

Disney’s “Aladdin” will hold technical rehearsals at Proctors before kicking off the theater’s Broadway season with performances from Oct. 11-13.

The musical comedy “Hairspray” will follow from Dec. 6-11 and feature catchy hit songs like “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” The company will be led by Andrew Levitt aka Nina West (from “RuPaul’s Drag Race”) as Edna Turnblad, Niki Metcalf as Tracy Turnblad and Sandie Lee as Motormouth Maybelle.

The acclaimed musical “Hamilton” returns to the theater on March 14, 2023, with performances running through March 19, 2023. With a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, the musical follows the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton.

The following month, from April 11-16, 2023, the musical comedy “Tootsie” will head to Proctors. Based on the 1982 film by the same name, the show follows Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. It features a Tony-winning book by Robert Horn and a score by Tony-winner David Yazbek.

Up next is “Jagged Little Pill,” a musical based on Alanis Morissette’s beloved album. Directed by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus, with a Tony-winning book by Diablo Cody and Grammy-winning score, the production follows a perfectly imperfect American family.
The show will run from May 2-7, 2023 at Proctors.

“Ain’t Too Proud” will finish out the season, with performances slated for May 23-28, 2023. The musical, which held technical rehearsals at Proctors last year, follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It’s been nominated for 12 Tony Awards and won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography. It includes some of the group’s treasured hits, like “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.”

Subscriptions for the 2022–2023 KeyBank Broadway Series start at $213 and go on sale Wednesday through the Box Office at Proctors, in person or via phone at 518-346-6204 Monday-Friday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. or online at
