"Theatre is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage." Wow. What a dreary way to describe the unmatched thrill of attending a theatre performance! It does allude to what makes theatre different from other forms of performance - the event occurs before a live audience in a specific place. You share the same space in which the story, the action, unfolds. You share in the narrative of the human condition. As Atticus Finch says in To Kill a Mockingbird, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." Theatre offers you the incredible opportunity of seeing things from a perspective perhaps different than your own - whether it is a distraught mother in a drama, a quirky pirate in a comedy, or a singing and dancing accountant in a musical.
Our 2018-2019 season will follow the advice of Atticus Finch and consider people and places from different points of view - as we open doors to Neverland, Main Line Philadelphia, Victorian London, Harlem's Cotton Club, 1970s Houston, and finally, opening night on Broadway.
