Alliance Theatre season: yes cheerleaders, no Mellencamp

Well, let’s just go ahead and say what’s not in the works at the Alliance Theatre for its 2010-11 season: a Stephen King-John Mellencamp musical called “Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.” Indeed, such a thing exists, and theater hawks apparently were expecting it to be there, but no, it is not.

AJCer Howard Pousner goes into some detail in his story, “Surprises in Alliance Theatre 2010-2011 season announcement,” but I’ll just leave you with the juicy list of what will be on stage. Yes, there will be cheerleaders.

The Alliance Theatre’s 2010-11 season includes…

On the Alliance Stage:

On the Hertz Stage:

  • Sammy & Me,” with Eric Jordan Young as Sammy Davis, Jr.
  • Carapace,” the winner of the 2010 Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition.
  • Spoon Lake Blues,” a new comedy by Kendeda finalist Josh Tobiessen.

For the holidays:

  • The Second City: Miracle on 1280 Peachtree Street,” the third consecutive comedy revue at the Alliance by the Chicago troupe
  • A Christmas Carol,” back for year 21.

And for families:
