We are very excited to have everyone heading back into our midst in the coming days and I thought I'd take an opportunity to bring you up to date on some happenings and other information you might find helpful as you start the school year.
1. Productions: We have three mainstage productions this year.
The Ugly One, by Marius Meyerhoff for Family Weekend.
This has been cast and goes into rehearsal on Sunday, but there are still some opportunities to get involved on running crews, constructions crews, publicity, etc. If you're interested, please let me know.
Arcadia, by Tom Stoppard Directed by Tony Haigh Goes up the first weekend in November. Auditions are at the beginning of the 2nd week of classes. Look for more information forthcoming.
The spring play is an adaptation of the children's book The Giver Directed by Patrick Kagan-Moore. This show goes up in April. More details to follow on that as well.
2. Dates, Meetings, etc.

3. KTA (THE KENTUCKY THEATRE ASSOCIATION) Festival will be held at Centre this year during the week of our fall production of Arcadia. We are serving as hosts so this will be a BIG deal in our world that week. We'll be looking for an all-hands-on-deck effort from everyone to really put our best foot forward for our guests. Again, more details to come.
We are really looking forward to the year and getting down to work. See you soon!
