We are so fortunate to have a venue like the Old National Events Plaza (ONEP), which includes the beautiful Aiken Theatre, here in Southern Indiana. The ONEP hosts dozens of events each year, including concerts, comedy shows, kid's programs, conventions, banquets, and more. The Broadway in Evansville series is, without a doubt, one of the highlights.

We now know which four shows will be featured in the 2024-25 series, and as always, it looks to be a stellar lineup!

Here's a Preview of the 2024-25 Broadway in Evansville Lineup


Tony Award-winning duo Jeanine Tesori (music) and David Lindsay-Abaire (book) revisit their first collaboration to deliver a more intimate and engaging experience – a joyful, colorful SHREK that leans into the humanity in all of us that celebrates our differences. This reimagined production brings the show back to its roots – giving it a new kind of love and emphasizing the importance of loving ourselves and one another.


An uplifting comeback story like no other, TINA – The Tina Turner Musical is the inspiring journey of a woman who broke barriers and became the Queen of Rock n’ Roll. Set to the pulse-pounding soundtrack of her most beloved hits, this electrifying sensation will send you soaring to the rafters.


Based on one of Hollywood’s most beloved romantic stories of all time, PRETTY WOMAN: THE MUSICAL will lift your spirits and light up your heart. Are you ready to fall in love all over again?


Winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards® including Best Musical and the 2020 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theater Album, HADESTOWN intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone. HADESTOWN is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never let’s go.

Ticket prices and on-sale dates for each show will be announced in the coming weeks and months. The smart move is to go ahead and purchase season tickets. Subscriptions start as low as $145 for the 4-show package, and new subscriptions will be available to purchase starting on Friday, July 26th.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
