ELY- The Northern Lakes Arts Association officially announced its 2024 season during its 2023 Gratitude Gathering event on Monday evening. While bits and pieces of the upcoming season have been teased out on social media, the entire program in one unified package has now made its official debut.
“I admit I’ve posted some of the upcoming season little by little over the last several weeks, like ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’” NLAA Executive Director Ian Francis Lah told the Timberjay, “but now, all the information is officially out there.”
Here’s the entire 2024 season in summary. For brevity, we have used date ranges instead of listing each performance date and time, since tickets do not go on sale until next year.
“Fiddler on the Roof,” March 14-23. The famous 1964 Tony Award-winning musical is coming to Ely.
“The Last 5 Years,” June 7-9. This 2001 award-winning musical stars a couple whose story is told in competing timelines, one forward, one backward, where they only meet in the middle.
“Bright Star,” June 20-30. The season includes another award-winning musical, including taking home a Grammy Award. The 2015 “Bright Star” has a complex plot of two intertwined love stories in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina at the end of WWII.
