Back Alley Productions is offering season ticket packages for the 2017 theater season, which begins in March. The season packages are a way to give patrons who are already planning to attend most or all of the shows an upfront discount.  

Back Alley Productions is offering:  a full season pass for all 12 shows, a nine-ticket pass, a six-ticket pass and a four-ticket pass.   Visit BAPshows.com for pricing and to reserve a season pass online. 

"When we started our journey at the Mars Theater last year we didn’t know what to expect,” Kaylee Smith, executive producer for Back Alley Productions, said. “We went from wondering how long we could keep the doors open, to becoming a stable of downtown Lafayette. We always had a good feeling that it would get some support, but we never expected to become a hallmark of the community.”

The theater season includes: 

Irish Courage, an Irish celebration based on The Playboy of the Western World, the story of Christy Mahon, a young man on the run who claims to have killed his father. The show will feature live music and dance. Performances are weekends from March 10-26. 

A Few Good Men, about the two Marines charged with the murder of a fellow Marine and the tense legal tribulations that follow. Performances are weekends from April 7-23.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, about Chief Bromden, a docile inmate in an insanity ward who narrates the antics of the rebellious Randle McMurphy who faked insanity to serve a sentence in the hospital rather than in prison. Performances are weekends May 5-21.

It’s A Disaster, an original script by Todd Berger being produced in arrangement with IAD MOVIE LLC, a stage adaptation of the 2012 cult comedy about four couples at Sunday brunch who discover they are stuck together as the world ends. Performances are weekends from June 2-18. 

Ordinary People, an examination of grief and depression during the disintegration of an upper-middle class family following the death of one of their sons in a boating accident. Performances weekends from June 30-July 16. 

Deathtrap, a thriller comedy about a playwright who discovers a hidden success from one of his students and considers murdering him to steal the fame. Performances are weekends from Aug. 4-13.

Lost in Yonkers, a look at family and brotherhood in 1940s Brooklyn as two teens struggle with life after their father abandons them with their kooky grandmother and crazy aunt. Performances are weekends Aug. 25-Sept. 10.
