Set to open in October in Everett, Village Theatre’s new 2012-2013 season has what audiences have been asking for – a lineup of powerhouse musicals, a murder mystery and something new.

Village’s new season lineup is: “Big River,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “The Mousetrap,” “Trails,” a new musical and “Chicago.”

“For years, we have listened to the feedback of our audience and our artists when selecting shows — this coming year is no exception and we think our patrons will be very pleased with this diverse line-up,” said Robb Hunt, Village executive producer.

Details of the new season lineup include:

“Big River”: Oct. 26. Roger Miller of “King of the Road” fame and his signature bluegrass, blues and country tunes accompany Mark Twain’s classic story of Huck Finn, who fakes his own death and hightails it to the river to help his friend Jim escape from slavery and on the way they have a grand adventure through the South.

“Fiddler on the Roof”: Jan. 4. A musical feast of favorites with “Sunrise, Sunset,” “Matchmaker,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Do You Love Me,” this story has Tevye trying to hold onto his religion, his Russian-Jewish customs, his five daughters and his tradition.

“The Mousetrap”: March 1. Agatha Christie’s suspense masterpiece has eight interesting characters but one murderer and one nameless target — but how many will get hit in the crossfire?

“Trails”: April 26. Two long-lost childhood friends are the focus of this new musical as the two drop everything to fulfill a promise and embark upon a 2,175-mile trek from Georgia to Maine along the Appalachian Trail. As the journey gets more difficult, long-kept secrets come to the surface and ghosts from the past haunt their steps as personal strength mixes with the spirit of adventure.

“Chicago”: July 5. A satire on institutional corruption and a signature work of choreography, the story follows the merry murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly who will stop at nothing for fame and fortune, with songs such as “Cell Block Tango,” “Razzle Dazzle,” and “All That Jazz.”

Village Theatre is based in Issaquah but performs out of the Everett Performing Arts Center, 2710 Wetmore Ave., Everett. Village Theatre Mainstage subscription packages are on sale now for five shows for the price of four. General admission prices range from $210 to $230 with additional discounts available for seniors and youth. All tickets are available through Village Theatre’s Box Office at 425-257-8600 or online at Village Theatre.
