Serenbe Playhouse Announces Season 10; RAGTIME, POCAHONTAS, and More
Serenbe Playhouse, named one of the Top 20 theatres in the nation by Playbill and recipient of the prestigious American Theatre Wing grant, is thrilled to announce its Tenth Anniversary Season!
From Artistic/ Executive Director and Founder Brian Clowdus:
For our Tenth Anniversary, SEASON X: AMERICA, we will be returning to our roots with stories that will shake to the core and speak to our past, present, and future. This will be our boldest and most ambitious season to date with 3 full scale, larger than life Broadway musicals and a world premiere adaptation in our 6 show season. In a time where the country remains divided, I look forward to celebrating our Tenth Anniversary Season with stories that examine our similarities rather than our differences... after all, we can never go back to before, and it's time to truly let the sun shine!
SEASON X: AMERICA
SHENANDOAH (March 13-April 7, 2019): The musical story of one family's struggle during the American Civil War will come alive in a site-specific, immersive new production. Their personal story of heartbreak and ultimately hope amidst tragedy will be staged alongside an actual Civil War reenactment to bring this personal story to life like never before.
RAGTIME (May 8- June 9, 2019): The Tony Award-winning musical based on E.L. Doctorow's acclaimed novel of the same name, is a picture of this nation's hopes and pains as we entered the Twentieth Century. Telling the diverse stories of African Americans, immigrants, and the elite upper-class, with a mix of real-life historical figures, it paints a canvas of a country on the verge of a new era.
HAIR: THE AMERICAN TRIBAL LOVE-ROCK MUSICAL (July 3- August 18, 2019): For our Tenth Anniversary Season, we will revive the Tony-winning rock musical in a brand new, larger than life production. During Season Four, Hair was a game-changing show for Serenbe Playhouse, and there is no better time to revive it than in 2019 with the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock!
POCAHONTAS (June 13 - August 4, 2019): This world premiere adaptation of Pocahontas will be brought to life in a new version by Native American playwright, Kara Morrison. Want to experience the story like never before? Come along as we journey through the forest where we'll find Pocahontas, as she awaits to share the tale of her beautiful, beloved homeland. Join us for an authentic take on the story of America's original heroine.
Over the course of Season X, Binder Casting will provide talent for the three large-scale musicals at Serenbe Playhouse. Auditions for each production will be held in New York City and Atlanta. Audition details will be announced shortly.
"Serenbe Playhouse is synonymous with creativity and bold immersive theatre," stated Bruston Manuel, Chief Operating Officer of Binder Casting. "This partnership aligns with our company's mission of providing top-notch talent to the best in the business, and we couldn't be more excited to cast for the theatre's Tenth Anniversary Season."
