The Parkland Theatre will reopen with four plays in the 2021-22 season, starting in September.
The theatre will present Playing God from Sept. 30-Oct. 3 in the first performances available to the public since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Learn more about the production, and reserve tickets, here.
The series continues with She Kills Monsters, scheduled for Nov. 4-7 and 12-14. The play, directed by Michael O’Brien, tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook, however, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. Reserve tickets here.
Next up is 10 out of 12 (slated for Feb. 17-20, 25-27), is a comedy that portrays the hardest day any theatre artist can endure – the all-day technical rehearsal, also known as the “10 out of 12.” Distilled from years of production notes, the play focuses on a hopelessly-behind-schedule production during one of its last rehearsals before opening to the public.
The series concludes in April with The SpongeBob Musical, a family show that is based on the animated series. Learn more here.
