Elsie Fest will take the Central Park Summerstage once again this fall, bringing showtunes to a musical festival setting. The fifth annual outdoor event will take place October 5, with tickets now on sale via pre-sale.

No word yet on a lineup; last year’s roster was headlined by co-creator Darren Criss, Tony winner Sutton Foster, Tony nominee Joshua Henry, and Once On This Island standout Alex Newell. Additional guests included Rufus Wainwright, Grant Gustin, Matthew Morrison, Casey Cott, Jodi Benson, and the casts of Be More Chill and The Prom (ahead of their respective Broadway bows).

The festival, the brainchild of Criss, Jujamcyn President Jordan Roth, and talent manager Ricky Rollins, launched in 2015.
