JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Broadway fans won't be able to say no to this: the FSCJ Artist Series is bringing Hamilton to Jacksonville for the 2019-20 season.

In the meantime, the Artist Series hopes to have few empty chairs in the upcoming season as more fans get to know the Broadway productions it's bringing to Jacksonville.

The Artist Series announced Monday that the 2018-19 Broadway in Jacksonville season will include:

  • Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I (Nov. 13-18)
  • Les Miserables (Jan. 22-27)
  • Waitress (March 12-17)
  • School of Rock (April 16-20)

All performances will be at the Times-Union Center.

Season ticket subscribers for 2018-19 will have the benefit of being first in line for Hamilton tickets the following season with their season ticket renewal option, Artist Series executive director Dr. Milt Russos said.

Performances for The King and I and Les Miserables are Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., Saturday afternoons at 2 p.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
