Evening Star Productions and Sol Children Theatre Announce 2017-2018 Season!
Although Evening Star Productions and Sol Children Theatre are not yet through their fourth and fifteenth seasons, both companies - under the direction of founder and Artistic Director Rosalie Grant - are deep into preparation for next year's productions.
Evening Star Productions 2017-2018 season will begin with David Mamet's Oleanna (September 21 - October 8, 2017), continue with Shakespeare's Macbeth (October 26 - 28), and conclude with Peter Gordon's Secondary Cause of Death (April 20 - May 6, 2018).
Sol Children Theatre will present Around the World in 80 Days (a musical, adapted from the Jules Verne classic by Chris Blackwood, with music by Piers Chater Robinson) (December 8 - 23, 2017), Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (March 1 - 18, 2018), and a musical version of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach (August 24 - September 2, 2018).
Sol Theatre's final production of the 2016-2017 season, Alice in Wonderland, adapted and directed by Seth Trucks, will run from August 10 through August 20.
"Sol Theatre's 2017-2018 Season needs to be a big party!" Rosalie Grant explains. "All season long we'll be celebrating Sol Children Theatre turning sweet sixteen! With the exception of Rodger's & Hammerstein's Cinderella, which will feature all children and teen actors, we will be casting the Sol Children shows age appropriately, giving local actors more chances to get on stage, and our patrons the chance to enjoy professional actors in great children's musicals!
Evening Star Productions' recent production of Samuel Beckett's existential masterpiece Waiting for Godot garnered rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, along with the honor of a Carbonell recommendation, and the young company's 2017-18 season will once again offer audiences an eclectic - and exciting - menu to choose from. "Following the extraordinary success of Godot we're pleased to kick off Evening Star's fourth season with the still-relevant Oleanna, by David Mamet, followed by Peter Gordon's Secondary Cause of Death," Grant reveals. "Secondary Cause of Death is the sequel to Murdered to Death - which proved to be wildly popular when we produced it in April 2016. And we're delighted to announce that Seth Trucks will be back as the inept Inspector Pratt, and Murphy Hayes will return as Colonel Craddock.
"We will be announcing additions to the Evening Star season through our newest endeavor, Sol After Dark, which will kick off in October with a one-act adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth," Grant continues. "This lineup of productions will feature an all-inclusive evening in one ticket price: a "bite" of theatre, refreshments and talk backs after the shows which will include Shakespeare, absurdism, science fiction etc... something a little off the beaten theatre path for those hungry for a different bite of theatre. All of us at Sol are very excited for 2017 - 18."
