THE REVIEW

As is “the norm” this year, we have had to make a few more adjustments to our SEASON, of course.  But NEVER FEAR, we are nothing if we’re not creative!

Because the medical safety parameters currently are limiting our audience size to almost less than those in the cast, we have decided to move our production of “THE MIRACLE WORKER” from mid-February to mid-August when, hopefully, we will be able to accommodate more audience.

That makes “AMADEUS” our first show of the season.  As of this writing, we are still on for that production at the larger ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART (same production dates in March) at 50% capacity (50 people each of the 4 performances).

THE GREENBERGS (performances of the winning scripts from the 2020 contest) will be POSTED ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL instead of a live performance.  We have also missed a year of submissions, because of COVID so we will start accepting submission for the 2021 Competition May 1, 2021 – the deadline for submissions will be March 1, 2022 – then workshopped and rehearsed for performance April, 2023.

We have also postponed our “ALLEY CAT THEATRE CAMP” for kids from June 2021, to JUNE 2022.  We would like every family member who wants to attend the performance of “FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, JR.” to be able to, as we attempt to fill up the performance space (The Central Christian Church sanctuary) instead of limiting the number of family who can attend.

Go to OUR SEASON to see the entire “run down”, in calendar order, of our SEASON and NON-SEASON shows.

The safety and health of the audience AND actors is our primary concern.  When we do return to LIVE PERFORMANCES, please know that every effort will be made to follow health guidelines and keep everyone safe, comfortable, and entertained.

IN OTHER NEWS, & SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO -The dates for our 2021/2022 Season have been set, shows locked in, and directors in place.  Show titles will be announced at the performance of, “AMADEUS” (ironic, since that has now become the first show of our season) but you might want to get these dates on your calendars:
