Having just moved into their permanent home in April, Crabpot Theatre has been bustling with summer performances, camps and classes, but among all the events, they have had their minds focused on the future.
The theatre company just announced their season 22 production schedule and plan to hold auditions July 14-16.
Their largest season to date boasts shows including, “Greater Tuna,” “Cinderella,” “The Glass Menagerie,” “Hogs,” “Charlotte's Web, one-acts during the winter holiday and again in the spring, and an original script entitled “Shem Creek” written by Jimmy Ward to premiere during Fleet Week in April 2015. Season passes are now on sale and are discounted until mid-July. To raise funds for the productions, Crabpot is hosting “Burgers and Brews,” a summer cookout fundraiser on Saturday, August 9 that will include food, beer and live entertainment with admission.
Before they jump into their upcoming season, though, Crabpot is finishing the summer with a bang.
They have two summer camps to go, as well as an “Acting for the Camera” class for adults, and a “Fundamentals of Acting” class for teens.
If you're interested in seeing them in action before the start of the season, the second series of “Summer Stock” shows for one weekend only, July 24-26 at 7 p.m.
