FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Community Players, Tucson's premier community theatre company, has announced a line up change for their 2016-17 season. The changes are due to scheduling requests, and the board of directors felt it feasable to accommodate those requests. "When weighing the pro's and con's of the changes, versus how not adjusting our schedule and what affect that could have on other productions utilizing our space, it made sense to us," said Scott Berg, board president of TCP. "When all is said and done, when you have two or more groups utilizing one space, you are bound to have scheduling issues or other matters that require a little flexibility," Berg continues, "It's tough enough in this business already, so why make it tougher if a solution that is equitable for all parties involved can be reached."
The Community Players season line up will now be as such:
Real Women Have Curves – September 15 –25. Please note that this is only a two week run with the addition of Thursday night performances.
Murder In Green Meadows – January 6-22, 2017. Auditons held October 17-18, 2016.
Mornings At Seven – March 10-26, 2017. Auditions will be September14-15, 2016. ***Please note that the audition dates will remain as previously announced. Additional auditions, if needed, will be announced at a later time. Those planning on auditioning are welcome to do so, but note date changes for production.
There will be an additional production added into the May time slot. That will be announced soon.
The Second Annual New One Act Play Festival – July 14-23, 2017. Unchanged.
The Andrews Brothers, previously in the March time slot is being moved to the 2017-18 season.
Berg noted that these changes will also ease some pre-production issues with set design and construction stating, "Two of the shows that were scheduled back to back have very elaborate sets, in one way or another, and to do a complete change over in the amount of time we would have had, would have been tough." He concludes, "We all want to put on quality theatre for our audiences to enjoy, and there is nothing wrong with helping each other do just that. It's a little give and take, you scratch my back I'll scratch yours, and do unto others. Why not? After all, we do theatre because we love it, why make it any harder."
The Community Playhouse is located at 1881 N. Oracle Rd. In Tucson. For further information or reservations call 520-887-6239. Theatre by the community, for the community.
