Dear Friends and Patrons,
The Waterfront Playhouse has been bringing fantastic stories to life for 80 years, and we have certainly weathered storms, but now on the eve of our 81st season we pause. Our hearts are with those who have been affected by this pandemic and our heartfelt thanks goes out to those who are working unselfishly to keep us safe.
Although our season was cut short, we were able to revel in the antics of our Youth Theater production of Shrek, jr; do the time warp in the sold out production of The Rocky Horror Show, ‘Let the Sunshine’ in the sold out production of Hair, go Around the World in 80 Days, hear the music of Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, experience a world premiere with Michael Aman’s Glass and have the time of your life with Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Thank you, thank you and thank you! To those who did not see Priscilla, thank you for donating your tickets back to the theater or transferring it to a gift certificate or just giving us time to process exactly what was happening!
While shows have been cancelled, we have been busy planning what to bring you next.
On Saturday evening, May 2 at 8pm, tune in to US Radio One for the Waterfront Playhouse Radio Players production of The 39 Steps: A Live Radio Play. Featuring Dave Bootle, David Black, John McDonald, Erin Mckenna and Carolyn Cooper this radio play will be broadcast live from the stage of the Waterfront. It will be great fun! For more information regarding The 39 Steps, check out the show page. CLICK HERE
Our youth theater production of Disney’s Frozen, is on hold, but rest assured you will be able to Let It Go later this year!
Neil LaBute’s Bash, featuring Arthur Crocker, Belle Jampol, Lauren Thompson and Ross Pipkin is preparing for the day we can open the doors or live stream the production. (Don’t worry, we are playing safe).
A revival of our popular Trunk Material: a musical review is on the drawing table along with a fabulous season of plays and musicals to entertain you throughout the year! We thank you again for your support and look forward to the day we can “See you at the theater!
Tom Thayer
Managing Artistic Director
