After two months of reorganization, the famed and historic Pasadena Playhouse has emerged triumphant from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and has just announced plans for their new season, reports the Star-News.

Two productions are on tap for the holiday season this year, and tickets for the first show, one-act opera "Amahl and the Night Visitors," go on sale August 20th, for performances in mid-December, including two by Pasadena mezzo soprano Susanna Guzman. The holidays will sparkle with a production by the Pasadena Dance Theatre of the classic "The Nutcracker." Plans for a third production, "Dangerous Beauty," are being finalized, and performance dates will be announced later.

The Playhouse has embarked on an ambitious campaign to raise funds to ensure the long-term future of the theatre, but plans to take things slowly while they bring theatre at the venue back to life after an unwanted hiatus.
