Season ticket holders enjoy early access to prime seating as well as post-performance discussions, pre-show tastings, dining discounts at a wide variety of restaurants, and savings on additional tickets and ticket insurance. Season tickets to Penguin Rep’s upcoming four shows are now on sale.

This year’s season will include the world premiere of THE SABBATH GIRL: A NEW MUSICAL by award-winning composer/lyricist Neil Berg, a resident of Nyack; the comedy CENTENNIAL CASTING; KEN LUDWIG’S DEAR JACK, DEAR LOUISE, in which the award-winning playwright (Lend Me a Tenor, Crazy for You) recounts his parents’ courtship during World War II; and the world premiere of THE STEEL MAN by Cary Gitter, Penguin’s playwright-in-residence.
