Capital City Theatre will launch its debut season in June with the award-winning musical Violet. Christine Dwyer, most recently seen on Broadway as Elphaba in Wicked, will star in the title role. The production is directed by Stephen Amato with choreography by Joe Barros and Andrew Abrams, Artistic Director, will also serve as musical director. Violet will open June 12, 2015 and run through June 21 at Music Hall on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

Violet, written by Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley, was recently on Broadway and nominated for Best Musical Revival of 2014. The musical is an adaptation of Doris Betts “The Ugliest Pilgrim,” and is the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime.

Auditions will take place in Madison (February 21), Chicago (February 23), and New York City (February 13 and 14). Visit our auditions page for details.
