By popular demand, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte is answering audience requests by offering reserved seating for 2015-16 season productions in the McColl Family Theater and Wells Fargo Playhouse. Timing is good for the new reservation option, as this season also expands the nonprofit’s national director and designer residency program.

With the new reservation system, theatre-goers can choose seating from best available or request specific locations, whether it’s by an aisle, wheelchair accessible or when simply trying to sit with friends. Subscription holders get priority on seating, but requests can be made for individual shows. Subscription packages include three or more shows and are organized by show genres — explore, dreamer and adventurer series — and ages. Package prices vary for different seating sections.

Thanks to $100,000 in support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the theatre is attracting diverse, experimental talent from around the nation this season, in addition to the talent that resides in Charlotte, says Adam Burke, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte artistic director.

Christopher Parks from the Experiential Theatre Company in New Jersey is working to mount a new, interactive version of “Wizard of Oz” entitled “Journey to Oz.” And Michael Bobbitt, producing artistic director of Adventure Theatre MTC in Maryland, is at the helm for a rock-concert-version of “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”

The new season kicks off in September with “Elephant and Piggie’s We are in a Play,” based on author Mo Willems’ Elephant and Piggie books.
