The 5th AvenueTheatre announces season line-up

The 5th Avenue Musical Theatre Company has announced its 2002-2003 line up.
   The season opens early with the world premiere of the musical "Hairspray," May 30 - June 23 before moving to Broadway in August.
   In the fall the season continues when the national tour of "Blast!" explodes on stage Oct. 8 - 27, with 54 dazzling performers playing brass and percussion instruments tossing and spinning in a perfectly synchronized ballet-like drill.
   The national tour of "The Full Monty," one of the most popular shows on Broadway, arrives at Nov. 19 - Dec. 8.
   In 2003, the season continues with a trio of beloved American musicals. "A Chorus Line," will play Jan. 28 - Feb. 16, immediately followed by "My Fair Lady," playing Feb. 25 - March 16.
   The last show of the season completes the trio with the national tour of "42nd Street," running May 21 - June 8.
   This year's new flexible packages allows you to pick the shows you want as part of your individual lineup.
   And with new earlier and mid-week curtain times there will be a wider variety of show times to fit into busy schedules.
   Renewal information has been mailed to current subscribers, and new subscription reservations are available now.
   Package prices range from as little as $48 (four shows, previews) to $288 (six shows, weekend).
