Todd Davison, Artistic Director, had the following to say about this upcoming season:

“It seems like a long time since we’ve all been together. It’s a brand-new season at Maples Rep

and we have good times in store for you. Whether it’s time to plan your first trip to see us at the

historic Royal Theatre in downtown Macon, Missouri or if you’re an old friend, we want to

welcome you back with open arms. We’d like to introduce you to our company of professional

actors, directors and designers from all across America who gather here in upstate Missouri to

share stories of lovers, dreamers, musicians, friends, schemers, and one exotic dancer. The best

way to enjoy our season is to see all the shows. You’ll laugh a lot, sing along a little and maybe

recall a happy memory from your past.”

But wait, that is not all! Joining our six mainstage shows is our Theatre for Youth and Families

series of shows for all ages. These shows run Wednesday and Saturday mornings at 10am, and

are fun, one hour long performances for an audience of any age. This season’s Theatre for Youth

and Families series titles include:
