Actors Announces 2018-2019 Lineup

Actors Theatre of Louisville has announced the 2018-2019 season, which begins in September.

“The strength of this lineup speaks to the dedication and passion (Artistic Director) Les (Waters) has for this organization and this community,” Managing Director Kevin E. Moore said in a release. “Since Les announced his departure in October, he’s worked closely with the theater’s artistic team to program the upcoming season. We are honored to work alongside him through this year’s Humana Festival of New American Plays and will look forward to welcoming him back to Louisville as a guest artist in the future.”

The 2018-2019 season is sponsored by Brown-Forman with additional support from Fund for the Arts, the Kentucky Arts Council and Yum! Brands, which supports the student matinée series.

Season ticket packages are on sale now, with six- and eight-play packages starting at $130. Actors Theatre’s Box Office is located at 316 West Main St. and can be reached by calling 502.584.1205 or go to
