12 Peers Theater to Close Sixth Season with Site-Specific Series MYTHBURGH
12 Peers Theater wraps up their sixth season with a series of original, site specific plays, under the Mythburgh banner.
Mythburgh strives to build community through telling original stories written by BrIan Edward, Molly Rice, Matt Henderson, Amy Hartman, Gayle Pazerski, and Mark Clayton Southers, or told us from the community we are serving.
In addition to telling site-specific stories, Mythburgh will blend the line between digital content and live entertainment with additional stories being told on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Artistic Director Vince Ventura said: "For me, Mythburgh is about building community through stories. This is the perfect cap on a season that focused on the stories we tell ourselves and the stories we tell each other. We want these conversations to continue between the monthly events, and will continue to tell stories online, as well as in person. Be ready for some laughs, some drinks, and some true and not-so-true stories about the city we all love."
