In the historic Asolo Theater, was a very special evening that held the 50th Anniversary Celebration of Asolo Repertory Theatre, complete with a brief history of the Repertory program, from the humble beginnings of how it was once housed at a Mercury outboard motor warehouse! And, a soon to be completed film documentary.

The FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training announced its 2024-2025 season, featuring a hilarious and bitter-sweet mid-century modern American comedy, a thought-provoking play from one of the freshest new female voices in American drama, a journey through time and history by a preeminent Asian American playwright and a rich Shakespearean masterpiece, written by the mature Bard.

In the Fall, the Conservatory will bring you The Curious Savage (October 29 – November 24), a hilarious and bitter-sweet mid-century modern American comedy. The Winter Repertory will feature John Proctor is the Villain (February 4 – March 2), a thought-provoking play from one of the freshest new voices in American drama. Its companion piece, The Chinese Lady (February 11 – March 2), to be presented at the Ringling Museum, will take you on a journey through time and history, seen through the eyes of the first Chinese woman in America.

The season will conclude in the Spring with The Winter’s Tale (April 1– 27), a rich Shakespearean masterpiece, written by the mature Bard, as Time drew the curtain on his career, and on the entire Renaissance era. This production will allow the audience to experience the production on the Elizabethan Stage, immersing them in the timeless story of beauty and torment.

“Our 51st season is a celebration of our past achievements and a testament to our dedication to the art of acting,” said Andrei Malaev-Babel, FSU Director and Head of Acting. “Numerous factors play into our season choices. The collective individuality of our graduate second-year ensemble is considered, as well as its individual members’ distinct talents. Our season selections cater to their strengths, but also challenge them to achieve new artistic heights. We are thrilled to continue providing top-tier theatrical experiences for our audiences while nurturing the talents of our graduate students.”
