2010-2011

Launching the 2nd Half Century of Troupe #358 (the 1959/1960 school year was our 1st), and welcoming the renovations of the "Broud" and Sjolund stages, what shall we do?

Thus far, I am looking at the following scripts:

Workshop, Mid Sept: Twilight Zone on Stage (6 one acts, in rotation over two weekends)
Late October: Sr Project (TBA)
Early Dec: It's a Wonderful Life
Mid Feb: The Wedding Singer
Mid March: Sr Project (TBA)
Early April: State One Acts (two Twilight Zone pieces)
Early May: Romeo and Juliet

Sr Project proposals need to be submitted by the first week in May, this year. So far, only Sandra S and Anna W have expressed serious interest. We will likely have FOUR viable performance spaces next year, so conceivably could do a 3rd project, if it is well thought out.
