Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre has announced the line-up for its 2011-2012 season, which will opens with the critically acclaimed 25th Anniversary production of Les Misérables, August 9 - 27. The Alain Boublil-Claude-Michel Schonberg-Herbert Kretzmer tuner is directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell.

Next up will be the Northwest premiere of Saving Aimee (September 30 - October 30), featuring book and lyrics by Kathie Lee Gifford; music by David Pomeranz and David Friedman; and additional music by Gifford. David Armstrong will direct this musical, which tells the real-life story of Aimee Semple McPherson -- the charismatic leader of a theatrical super church in 1920s L.A. who was equally passionate about saving souls and making headlines.

Additional productions will include the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Cinderella (November 25-December 31); the world premiere of First Date featuring book by Austin Winsberg and music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner (dates TBA); Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma (February 9-March 4); Damn Yankees, with music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross with book by George Abbott and Douglas Wallop (April 26-May 20); and Jonathan Larson's Rent, directed by Bill Berry (July 12-August 5).
