Seven shows – including the Tony-winning “Kinky Boots” and “Something Rotten!” – were announced Thursday night for the 2018-19 Broadway at the Orpheum series.

The season opens Nov. 23 with the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas show, and concludes May 2, 2019, with “Something Rotten,” a musical about two brothers trying to compete with Shakespeare by writing an entirely new form of entertainment.

Subscriptions and group tickets go on sale Friday. Current subscribers who renew by April 27 will have all handling fees waived during the early bird special. The renewal deadline is June 1.

About the shows:

“Mannheim Steamroller Christmas,” 8 p.m. Nov. 23. The Omaha-based touring group will bring its Christmas music and state-of-the-art multimedia effects to the theater.

“Finding Neverland,” 7:30 p.m. Dec. 26. Based on the hit film, “Finding Neverland” tells the story behind the creation of “Peter Pan.”

“The Sound of Music,” 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21, 2019. A new touring production of the musical recalls the story of the singing von Trapp family and their governess during World War II.

“Stomp,” 7:30 p.m. Feb. 13, 2019. Regular Broadway at the Orpheum theatergoers are probably familiar with this percussive show that uses everything from matchboxes to newspapers to make its sounds.

“Kinky Boots,” March 13, 2019. Cyndi Lauper adapted the indie film about the owner of a shoe factory and the drag queen who helps him rebuild the business.

“Legally Blonde,” 7:30 p.m. April 2, 2019. Adapted from the film starring Reese Witherspoon, the musical shows how a law school grad becomes a top attorney without sacrificing her own ambitions.

“Something Rotten,” 7:30 p.m. May 2, 2019. Drawing on references to dozens of hit musicals, this show suggests what might have happened if two brothers challenged Shakespeare for dominance by creating a new art form.

The 2018-19 Broadway at the Orpheum season is sponsored by Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
