2018-19 Show Calendar in Place

Posted: Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 7:49am

The Curtain Players Board of Directors at its January 16 meeting approved the 2018-2019 production calendar. The community theatre company is expected to produce six scripts between September 2018 and May 2019. It will be Season 56 for the theatre.

With one possible exception, Curtain Players productions in 2018-2019 are again staged for eight performances over three weekends on the Friday-Saturday/Friday-Saturday-Sunday/Friday-Saturday-Sunday platform. Curtain times on Friday and Saturdays are 8 PM; on Sundays, 2 PM.

The one exception is SHOW 6 which, to avoid conflict with Mother's Day, may have matinee performances on its first and third Sundays. That performance run will be determined by the title selected for the time slot.

The 2018-2019 production dates:

SHOW 1: September 7-8, 14-16 and 21-23

SHOW 2: October 19-20, 26-28 and November 2-4

SHOW 3: November 30, December 1, 7-9 and 14-16

READERS THEATRE EVENT: January 10-13

SHOW 4: February 8-9, 15-17 and 22-24

SHOW 5: March 22-23, 29-31 and April 5-7

SHOW 6: May 3-4 (5?), 10-11 (12?) and 17-19

With this production calendar set, the script reviews, auditions, Set Build Saturdays, Curtain Panels audience talk backs, as well as other administrative, operations, education, and volunteer initiatives can be scheduled. Minor adjustments may be made to the performance schedule as all factors for the theatre’s operations in Season 56 are finalized.

A detailed Curtain Players Season 56 announcement is not expected until late February or early March. The board is awaiting new season recommendations from its selection committee, members of which have solicited applications and project proposals, interviewed director candidates, and read scripts since early fall.
