TheatreFest! announces return to in-person (reduced seating) theatre
By Jeremy Cloyd
TheatreFest! the Summer Theatre at Lindsey Wilson College, is gearing up for its return to live theatre! The ninth season of TheatreFest! will include two major productions and its fourth summer of IMAGINE! Youth Theatre, the summer camp that has become a staple of the summer months on the LWC campus.
This summer's lineup includes the touching and hilarious Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling, the beautifully written Love Letters by A.R. Gurney, and a special showcase by the IMAGINE! Youth Theatre students.
TheatreFest! may be returning to in-person performances, but things will be slightly different than in years past. V.P. Henry Auditorium, where TheatreFest! performs, will have a reduced seating capacity to allow for social distancing. This capacity only allows for around 50 audience members each night. There will also be a mask requirement to attend productions this summer as an added layer of safety.
"We are thrilled to get back to doing what we know best," says Robert Brock, Artistic Director of TheatreFest! "The past year was challenging for theatre across the country, but we are ready and prepared to spend the summer creating theatre with and for this region."
Brock also says that TheatreFest! was able to continue and maintain its presence because of the massive response from the community during last summer's online offerings. "We were so fortunate to have a community the rallied with us to continue offering theatre throughout this pandemic. We hope to be able to prove to that same community that we can and will create live theatre safely while maintaining the high expectations that they have become accustomed to."
Steel Magnolias will be performed at 7pmCT on July 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, & 24 and at 2pmCT on July 18, & 25 in V.P. Henry Auditorium.
Love Letters performance dates are currently TBA.
IMAGINE! Youth Theatre will be announcing information regarding its camp in an upcoming release.
