2020-2021 Season Announcement
The Summit Theatre Board of Directors is excited to announce an abbreviated 20-21 season providing unique theatre opportunities for you, with a focus on small socially-distanced productions in addition to streaming/digital options. Our board has been working hard to schedule programming that prioritizes audience/cast/crew safety and also works with our current search for new performance venues.
More details will be provided as they develop for each production. Specific performance dates, location, tickets, and in-person and/or streaming & digital content will be decided as each production approaches. We’ll be sure to inform you as soon as information is available! STG will continue to follow all Jackson County Health Department guidelines for all events that occur in-person.
For our 20-21 season, production tickets will be available to purchase for each individual performance. We anticipate season ticket packages returning for our next 21-22 season.
It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
Written by Joe Landry
Original Music by Kevin Connors
Directed by Ginger Birch
This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940s radio-style broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. This production is complete with a foley artist creating sound effects, original commercials, and beautifully composed underscoring.
The 39 Steps
Written by Patrick Barlow & John Buchan
Directed by TBD (open director call will be released soon)
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!
Postponed to Spring 2021
Written & Directed by Ben Martin
Cellular ‘Cenes is a short romance told in 5 scenes. Each scene (‘cene) is set in a different street locale within a typical downtown business district. Rather than build sets and put them on a stage, the scenes are designed to take place in actual places in the city. The audience follows the action by moving from place to place and witnessing the action as it occurs on site. The twist, and hence the title, is that the audience has no idea where the next scene is going to be until they receive a text message by cell phone telling them where to go.
Production Title TBD
Circumstances require us to choose a different show for our May 2021 production slot. We will update this information as soon as we can!
