The Cold War and space race paranoia threaten the good folks at the fictional Milwaukee Space Center when a flying saucer lands in the city. Taking its cue from pulp movies popular at the time, Zombies from The Beyond brings the 1950s nostalgically and hilariously to life.

Dark Monday is a celebration of Columbus theatre, a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Special Host Nina West introduces performances from many of the region's theatre companies, including CATCO, Columbus Children's Theatre, Columbus Entertainment Productions 4 Charity, Curtain Players, Emerald City Players, Imagine Productions, King Avenue Players, Pickerington Community Theatre, Pleasure Guild of Nationwide Children's Hospital, Short North Stage, SNAP! Performance Productions, SRO Theatre Company, Vaud-Villities, Weathervane Playhouse, Westerville Civic Theatre.

In the Spotlight

All Season, Flex, Single Tix On Sale

Curtain Players Season 53 has just begun and already everything is on sale.

As of Wednesday July 1, individual tickets, season tickets, flex ticket packages, for the six 2015-2016 community theatre productions are available for purchase on this website. Look for the orange button in the upper left of this home page, or click here.

The Curtain Players Board of Directors notes strong audience loyalty and box office success during the recent season and because of that, with one exception, is making no increases in ticket prices for Season 53.

Individual tickets for Curtain Players productions remain at $17 for adults and $15 for senior citizens (age 60 and over) and students. That one exception: season opener Zombies from The Beyond. Because of the increased costs in staging this musical comedy, individual tickets for this engagement are priced at $20 for adults and $18 for senior citizens and students.

There is no price increase for the season subscriptions — the ticket plan in which patrons purchase the same seats for the same performances for each of the six productions on the Season 53 schedule. Season ticket prices remain priced at $90 for adults and $80 for senior citizens/students. A season subscription saves $15 on the cost of individual tickets to the six productions. This ticket option is available only through the run of Zombies from The Beyond.

Flex tickets are being sold in bundles of four at a cost of $62 for adults and $55 for senior citizens and students. Flex tickets can be used for any Curtain Players production. Patrons have the convenience of using the tickets for any combination of seats and performances throughout the season. The four-ticket flex package also saves ticket-buyers on the cost of buying tickets individually. Flex packages are on sale throughout the entire season.

As always, patrons may choose their seats on line based on availability, and there are no extra handling or processing charges.

The Curtain Players 2015-2016 season includes the musical comedy Zombies from The Beyond; the Ohio premiere of the family drama The Outgoing Tide; the holiday story It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play; the drama Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean; the comedy classic You Can’t Take It With You; and the comedy The Skin of Our Teeth.
