As you are aware, we have been monitoring the ongoing developments of the COVID-19 outbreak. Due to the Ohio Department of Health’s Special Order to “stay at home,” Weathervane Playhouse has had to make some difficult decisions regarding our response to these unprecedented developments for the safety of our staff, volunteers, and patrons.

To that end, we are postponing our production of Kinky Boots (Scheduled April 23 to May 17) until a time in the coming months when we can ensure everyone’s safety. We are working to make it the first show we produce once this crisis is over. If you have tickets for Kinky Boots, they will automatically transfer over to the new performance dates to be announced – but in the meantime, we ask that you stay safe and be patient until we can carefully reschedule this production.

If you need to contact us, you can reach out to Box Office Manager, Keith Campbell, via email at kcampbell@weathervaneplayhouse.com

Weathervane continues to be a beloved institution in our community.  It is due to our dedicated patrons, donors, and volunteers that the Playhouse is the wonderful home away from home that it has become.  If you can, please consider a donation to our General Operating Fund to help guarantee the Playhouse’s future during this difficult and unprecedented time.  Your donation will contribute to ensuring that we remain a place where all can gather in joy with our Weathervane Playhouse family.

Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features a joyous, Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, and a hilarious, uplifting book by four-time Tony winner, Harvey Fierstein.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man that he is meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible... and discover that, when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

Kinky Boots is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.  www.MTIShows.com
