Tobin announces theater, dance seasons

May 3, 2016 - 3:15pm

The 2016-17 season of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts’ three subscription series — Signature, Dance and Edge — holds the first touring production of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” since the musical went to Broadway as well as the return of longtime favorites. Aaron Zimmerman, vice president of programming and marketing for the Tobin Center, said he is particularly pleased with the lineup for the dance series, not only because it features four world-class contemporary companies but because there will be an educational component with each performance. In addition, on Sept. 26, modern dance troupe Parsons Dance will give a sensory-friendly performance designed for families with members on the autism spectrum. It is the first time the Tobin Center has offered that kind of programming, Zimmerman said. The dance series, which takes place in the H-E-B Performance Hall, holds Parsons Dance on Sept. 25, “Shadowland” by Pilobolus on Jan. 18, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on March 28 and “Opus Cactus by MOMIX on April 19.
