The Jubilee 2020 season includes smash hit “Hamilton” & more!
Calgary is just getting hammered with mega-popular musicals this year! The mega-hit hip hop R&B broadway show Hamilton is one of many that will take the stage at YYC’s Jubilee Auditorium in the 2020/2021 season. Ah! We can’t wait.
The show about America’s founding father, Alexander Hamilton, blew up in 2015 after an incredibly successful run in New York. We aren’t playing when we say successful, folks. In 2016, the musical won 11 awards, including best musical. It even won a Pulitzer Prize for drama. Impressive, right?
Hamilton is on the 2020 bill alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar. Also on the list is Anastasia, which was adapted by the beloved 90s animated movie of the same name.
Jesus Christ Superstar will kick things off from November 3rd-8th of this year. Then, Hamilton will take the stage from August 17th to September 12th of 2021. Finally, the Jubilee will present Anastasia from January 5th-10th of 2021. We’re already crying.
Wow! Broadway babies, do we have a lot to look forward to in the upcoming season or what? Ticket packages for the 2020 Jubilee Auditorium season including all three shows can be purchased online now for renewing subscribers and begin at $185.

You could say that this year is shaping up to be quite the production. Get it? Production? Because we’re talking about musicals? Man, do we crack ourselves up.
