Not only is Village Theatre announcing its new 2013-2014 season, that includes “Les Miserables,” the theater company is announcing a couple of other new changes as well to further accommodate audiences.

Performances will have earlier start times on Wednesdays and Thursdays; so instead of the curtain going up at 8 p.m. it will go up at 7:30 p.m. Also, Village is adding a 2 p.m. matinee option to Thursday for its subscription series.

“Les Miz” will be Village Theatre’s holiday program for January 2014 so anxious fans will have to be a bit patient for that. But while waiting, a production of “Xanadu,” the tongue-in-cheek musical, will help you “skate” through your wait.

The new season lineup is:

“Xanadu”: Oct. 25 through Nov. 17. If you like Greek myths and leg warmers and roller disco then you’ll be entertained with the production based on the movie starring Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly which featured a Greek muse visiting fromMt.Olympusto help create the world’s first roller disco. Song hits include “I’m Alive,” “Suddenly,” and “Magic.”

“Les Misérables”: Jan. 10 through Feb. 2. This massive story of revolution and love will play out in the imaginary streets ofParisand presented in Village Theatre’s intimate 510-seat house as thePacific Northwest’s first local professional production of this show.

“The Foreigner”: March 7 through March 30, 2014. This Larry Shue comedic farce focuses on Charlie who pretends he doesn’t speak English at aGeorgiafishing lodge only to discover people say the darndest things to foreigners.

“The Tutor”: May 2 through May 25, 2014. This new musical comedy with a fun pop score involves a struggling young novelist who writes during the day and tutors rich kids in the afternoon to make money and discovers his muse in a sullen 16-year-old from theUpper Eastside.

“Funny Girl”: July 11 through Aug. 2, 2014. The musical that launched Barbra Streisand’s career returns with darling Fanny Brice singing and dancing such favorites as “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” “People” and “You Are Woman, I Am Man.”

Village Theatre experienced record-breaking attendance for its holiday production of “Fiddler on the Roof,” which performed in January, with its season subscription holders increasing overall, bringing the total to 18,400 season ticket holders.
