YOUNGSTOWN

The Hopewell Theatre, 702 Mahoning Ave., will fully embrace its recent shift to contemporary fare in its 2018-19 season, which will include the musicals “Godspell” and “Snoopy, the Musical” and six plays.

The community theater, formerly known as Victorian Players, changed its name in the 2017-18 season and completely dropped its emphasis on historical genre plays. Flex passes are on sale now that offer tickets to six shows for $60 ($42 for senior citizens and students). Call 330-746-5455.

Here is the 2018-19 lineup:

Aug. 31 - Sept. 9: “Moon Over Buffalo,” a slapstick comedy about two traveling actors filled with innuendo.

Oct. 19-28: “Twilight Zone,” based on the television series created by Rod Serling that aired from 1959-1964.

Dec. 7-15: “Snoopy, the Musical,” a feel-good musical for the holiday season.

Jan. 4-13: “Sea Horse,” a two-person play that portrays a complex love story set in a waterfront bar.

Feb. 15-24: “A Raisin in the Sun,” the landmark play about a black family living in poverty in Chicago.

March 29 - April 7: “Godspell,” the Broadway musical that portrays Biblical parables.

May 10-19: “Deathtrap,” the comic thriller.

June 7-16: “On Golden Pond,” a moving look at the bond between a father and a daughter that was made into a 1981 film starring Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn and Jane Fonda.
