Having just moved into its permanent home in April, Crabpot Theatre has been bustling with summer performances, camps, and classes, but among all the events, the players have had their minds focused
on the future.
The theatre company just announced its Season 22 production schedule and held auditions last week, July 14-16.
The largest season to date boasts a variety of shows including, Greater Tuna, Cinderella, The Glass Menagerie, Hogs, Charlotte’s Web, one-acts during the winter holiday and again in the spring, and an original script entitled Shem Creek written by Jimmy Ward that will premiere during Fleet Week in April 2015. Season passes are now on sale and are discounted until mid-July.
To raise funds for the productions, Crabpot is hosting “Burgers & Brews,” a summer cookout fundraiser on Saturday, August 9th that will include food, beer, and live entertainment with admission.
Before the season kicks off though, summer will go out with bang.
Two summer camps are still scheduled as an Acting for the Camera class for adults, and a Fundamentals of Acting class for teens.
If you’re interested in seeing the Players in action before the start of the season, the second series of Summer Stock shows takes place July 24-26 at 7 p.m.
