Studio Players has announced the titles and directors for its 2011-12 season. It is a lineup that includes a world premier: the musical Looking for Mrs. Claus by Lexington playwright Margaret C. Price, whose Belle Brezing will play at Actors Guild of Lexington in June. The show will be directed by Alberta Labrillazo and run Nov. 17-Dec. 11.
The other plays on the season are:
The 39 Steps, adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan, based on an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. Directed by Ross Carter, Sept. 15-Oct. 9.
Our Leading Lady by Charles Busch. Directed by Scott Turner, Jan. 19-Feb. 5.
Bad Seed by Maxwell Anderson. Directed by David Senatore, March 15-April 1.
The Graduate by Terry Johnson, based on the novel by Charles Webb and the motion picture screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry. Directed by Bob Singleton, May 17-June 3.
The 39 Steps and Looking for Mrs. Claus are scheduled for four weekend runs, which should help accommodate crowds at the theater that has routinely sold out shows in recent years.
