Our musical of season 2023-2024 is Iltatähti – The Evening Star. The musical comedy ILTATÄHTI stars three elderly residents of a retirement home, Olga, Eeva and Hertta. In their ward, the ladies make fleeting transitions to their dreams and daydreams – sometimes spontaneously, sometimes with the help of medication. In their dreams, the women are whatever and whoever they want, unconstrained by time or gravity, and lacking in admirers. Every song you hear is a great hit.

Written dy Raila Leppäkoski, adapted and diercted by Sarianne Tursas.
