"We cannot wait to celebrate our homecoming return to the Margeson Theater. This season is full of fantastic productions and we could not be more excited to bring Davis Gaines back [Gaines will be starring in The Fantasticks] to Orlando Shakes. Our patrons will remember him from our productions of Les Misérables and Man of La Mancha, but of course he is best known as the longest running star of Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera," said Jim Helsinger, Shakes' Artistic Director, in a press statement.

Tickets for shows are available now from the Shakes. Socially distanced seating options are available.
