TheatreWorks' "Macbeth"

Steve Emily starred in Theatreworks’ production of “Macbeth” several summers ago. Next year, Theatreworks will offer Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.”

Theatreworks will kick off its 46th season with a soul-seeking devil.

Jen Silverman’s “Witch” will open in September, the first of five plays in a season that ends with Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” in July 2022.

“Each of these plays builds on the special relationship audiences and artists have with each other,” Theatreworks artistic director Caitlin Lowans said. “Each story explores resilience in the face of difficulty, seasoned with the joy, laughter and music that carry us through.”

Subscriptions are $145-$170. Those who purchase season tickets through Aug. 1 will receive an early bird discount. Subscriptions include friend passes, free drinks, flexible dates, free exchanges and more. Single tickets go on sale in September. Call 255-3232 or go online to entcenterforthearts.org.
