This autumn, get ready for a rich theatrical experience right in the heart of Fayetteville as TheatreSquared proudly presents The Band’s Visit from Oct. 11 through Nov. 5. With music and lyrics by David Yazbek and book by Itamar Moses, this 10-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical is set to take the stage in a co-production with Writers Theatre of Glencoe, Illinois.

In a remote town far from the hustle and bustle, a band of Egyptian musicians find themselves lost, arriving unexpectedly and altering the course of an ordinary day for the townspeople. What ensues is a heartwarming story of human connection told with humor, tenderness and the transcendent power of music. The Band’s Visit sings a captivating tale of how life’s most beautiful surprises often come when and where we least expect them. In a world often focused on our differences, this enchanting musical celebrates the joy and unity that music can bring into our lives, echoing the sentiment that our shared humanity is the sweetest melody of all.

The Wall Street Journal said it’s the best musical of the year, and it’s easy to see why. Every performance is a rich blend of culture, emotion and unforgettable music, all wrapped in a narrative that’s as poignant as it is uplifting. Yazbek’s soul-stirring score infuses the production with an authentic, deeply resonant Middle Eastern sound, while Moses’ witty and touching script paints vibrant characters who will stay with you long after the final bow.

Performances are scheduled Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with additional matinee showings at 2 p.m on Saturday and Sunday. Ticket prices range from $20 to $64, offering options for every budget without skimping on this world-class experience.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this extraordinary journey. Book your tickets today for The Band’s Visit at TheatreSquared, and let the music lead the way to a night you won’t soon forget.
