A scary child, a trailer park holiday, a family tragicomedy, a toe-tapping musical and retirement home shenanigans will highlight Theatre of Dare’s new season starting in October, and season tickets for all five main stage productions are available now on the community theater’s website.

“We can’t wait to get our 33rd season started,” said T.O.D. president Stuart Parks II. “It’s a great mix of suspense, comedy, drama and music, and our fans can guarantee themselves a seat at all five shows with a season ticket.”

The season ticket packages start at $75 and include the following five productions:

  • The Bad Seed (Oct.27-Nov.5) – Little Rhoda is sweet, charming, full of old-fashioned graces; loved by her parents and admired by her elders. But is she also a murderer? A classic thriller from 1954.
  • The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical (Dec. 8-17) – North Florida’s most exclusive trailer park gets the tinsel and “keg nog” out for a holiday celebration like none other.
