Adventure Theatre Launches 70th Season With A Digital Preview This Sunday


Season to include five shows with themes reflecting on some of our most unexpected relationships after the pandemic.

Adventure Theatre celebrates its landmark 70th anniversary season in 2021-2022. This Platinum Jubilee Season will feature five productions with an encompassing theme of unexpected connections.

To kick off the 70th season, Adventure will host its digital Season Launch on Sunday, August 1, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The show will feature production staff from this season's shows to give a sneak peek of the upcoming productions. The season will be the first full season curated by Chil Kong, Adventure's Artistic Director, who will also host Sunday's preview.

This production season, Adventure will celebrate those bonds we least expect. The collection of shows uncovers secrets that connect family generations, make enemies into partners, helps cranky neighbors become best friends, and turns strangers into a community. Show tickets can be purchased here.

The Season Launch will feature discussions with the creative teams of the following shows:

  • Luchadora! - Playwright Alvaro Rios and director Ricky Ramon
  • Winterfest - Playwright Robyn Seemann, Playwright Keegan Patterson and Director Cara Gabriel
