Craterian Theater announces new season for centennial year

MEDFORD, Ore. – The Craterian Theater at the Collier Center unveiled its upcoming season of shows on Tuesday.

The 2024-2025 season lineup features unique performances in “The Aluminum Show” that is returning after 12 years, as well as comedian Tom Papa, who will be performing for the first time in the valley. For the upcoming holiday season, Jake Schimabukuro will perform ukulele in his show “Holidays in Hawaii,” plus the Nutcracker Prince takes on the Mouse King in “Nutcracker Magical Christmas Ballet.”

“We are really excited to announce our new season today,” said Eric Strahl, marketing director for the Craterian Theater. “We run our season kind of by the academic calendar. So we are just finishing up one season as we announce the next season starting this September.”

This marks the theater’s 27th season of shows as well as its 100th anniversary.

As far as plans for celebrating the centennial of the building Strahl said, “we are keeping that under wraps for now. We are also looking to renovate pieces and parts of the building, update technology, find the things we have worn out over a quarter of a century.”

Tickets for the new season go on sale June 25 at 10 a.m.
