This year, the seven-show McAlpin OnSTAGE subscription series will bring music to life with shows such as A Tribute to the Movies and Broadway (Dec. 5, 6 & 7), and share laughter with comedies like Barefoot in the Park (Jan. 9, 10 & 11) and the Hotbed Hotel (April 9, 10 & 11). The series features one of musical theater’s most popular shows—IRSC Performing Arts Program production of Grease (Feb. 20, 21, 22 & 22).

Shows not a part of the subscription series are also available during the season. This year, additional shows include the choir concert Music for the Ages (Nov. 23), a Student Dance Concert (April 15 & 16) and more.
