3rd Act Theatre Company Announces Season 2: POWER
3rd Act Theatre Company announced their second season, themed POWER, and shows to be performed, via a livestream event on Facebook last Saturday. Mainstage shows are: Running Mates by Beth Kandor, Setting the Nation Right and Other Easy Plays for Women, by Bell Elliot Palmer, and Heartbreak House by George Bernard Shaw. Noire shows are: Medusa Undone by Bella Poynton, Frankenstein by Victor Hannam, and Oxtiern, or The Misfortunes of Libertineage, by the Marquis de Sade. Two additional shows round out the dual POWER season and will be announced at a later date. Of the power theme, Board President and 3rd Act Founder Amandanell Bold said, "The POWER season contains productions that depict the power in stories of people overcoming obstacles and also tells stories of what can happen when someone has too much power."
Season 2: POWER includes two groups of shows or "seasons": Mainstage and Noire. The Mainstage Season features plays that appeal to a wide audience and support the company's mission to entertain, educate, and enlighten through the shared experience of live theatre. The Noire Season plays push boundaries for adult audiences. "Splitting the season into two groups is so exciting, because it helps us provide our patrons with the kind of theatre they want to see. Some productions aren't for everyone but we believe that the theatrical arts are," said Board President and 3rd Act Founder Amandanell Bold.
The final show of Season 1: FAMILY, the currently postponed production of Kim Carney's Moonglow, will be performed as soon as possible, with possibly livestreamed performances due to precautions around the Coronavirus. As 3rd Act Board Member Dakota Lee Bryant said, "Artists cannot stay in quarantine forever," so 3rd Act will find a way to tell this beautiful story eventually.
