The Tobin Center's Frost Signature Series will bring six Broadway musicals to the performing arts facility.
Editor's note: This story was updated to include the right dates for Shrek the Musical. They were listed incorrectly in a news release promoting the series.

Starting in June, a host of favorite stage productions will bring the magic of Broadway to the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

The 2024-25 season of the Tobin's Frost Signature Series will bring six musicals to the Alamo City that have won a total of 20 Tony Awards and 15 Drama Desk Awards. All will take place in the H-E-B Performance Hall, and each is scheduled for just one or two performances.

Shrek the Musical
, scheduled for June, offers a lively adaptation of the family friendly animated movie. The musical became a classic with its first production in 2008 and features the sassy donkey, feisty princess and green ogre beloved by generations of moviegoers.

The much-talked-about Dear Evan Hansen arrives in September. The production is a coming-of-age musical that originated in D.C. and is currently on its second national tour. Following the play's success, Dear Evan Hansen has been adapted into a book and a film.

For fans of classic soul and R&B, Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations chronicles ups and downs of the revered Motown group, while R.E.S.P.E.C.T. centers Aretha Franklin’s music career.

The Tobin Center also is reviving Curtain Talks and Cocktails for a second season. The Broadway-focused lecture series hosted by Trinity University professor Nathan Stith will cover the musicals of Disney, Sondheim, Bob Fosse and Kander & Ebb. It will conclude with an in-depth look at West Side Story.
