Oregon Cabaret Theatre
PO Box 1149
Ashland, OR 97520
Ring of Fire
February 11th - April 17, 2016
From the iconic songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and home and family. More than two dozen classic hits—including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune—performed by a multi-talented cast, paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black that promises to be a foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ salute to the unique American legend.
9 to 5: The Musical
April 28th - July 3rd
Set to the music of Dolly Parton and based on the 1980 hit movie, 9 to 5 tells the story of three female co-workers who concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. This hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic.
July 14th - September 11th, 2016
Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie Hart and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal. The Kander and Ebb classic won six Tonys when it was revived on Broadway in 1997.
Bat Boy & The Rocky Horror Show Double Creature Feature
September 22nd - November 8th, 2016
In our Fall slot, the off-Broadway sensation Bat Boy: The Musical plays in rep with the cult classic The Rocky Horror Show for twice the thrills, laughs, and monstrous fun. The same cast performs both shows in rotation in the Fall, so check the calendar carefully before booking. The premise of Bat Boy is ripped straight from supermarket tabloids – a half-man, half-bat is discovered in a cave by the locals of Hope Falls, West Virginia and brought to live with the family of the town veterinarian. In The Rocky Horror Show, newly engaged Brad and Janet become stranded at the eerie mansion of the mad transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter on the eve of his greatest triumph – the creation of a gorgeous muscled hunk named Rocky.
Pine Mountain Lodge
November 17th - December 31st, 2016
A world premiere musical that tells the story of a returning World War II vet who’s been tasked with shutting down his late father’s flagging upstate New York hotel, only to discover that the hotel is haunted by two quarreling ghosts, former lovers and famous dance partners. The ghosts put aside past grievances to convince the young man to put on one last show to save the hotel…

Subscriptions FAQWe have have answers to your most common subscription questions
No. All of our subscriptions are the same price as they were last year - $150/$130/$93
I don't see dining discounts in the brochure - have you eliminated this benefit?
Unfortunately, yes. To keep our prices the same, we have taken away the dining discount coupons.
I don't like the sound of Show X - Should I just get a Mini Subscription and single tickets for the shows that sound good to me?
You could, because we'd like to keep you as a subscriber, but the V.I.P. subscription is roughly the same cost as four shows purchased individually - and you get the two One Night Only shows as an added benefit.
When will online ordering be available?
The subscription system is now live - use the links at the top of the page. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any trouble.
