Greetings, everyone. We have not blogged in many months. Itinerant Theatre is still moth-balled. Our Studio 339 is under repair, as is the entire Central School Arts & Humanities building. These repairs are extensive and should take another year. We were hit, not only by Laura and Delta, but also by an historic freeze and a springtime historic flood, all in Year 2020, the first year of the Covid pandemic. Our ceiling was compromised. The entire building was compromised. Therefore, our equipment is in storage, and at this time we are not staging any readings or fully-produced plays.
But we are mindful of our supporters, our backers, and our audience. We know that many, many of you endured the same natural disasters, and in some cases with devastating results, and that many of you have struggled mightily with Covid. We think of you, and we very much look forward to contacting you when we do set our goals for staging our New Plays Series and other projects.
We will certainly stage the 26 new plays that we announced on this blog in late May 2020. We look forward to that work and to celebrating these excellent playwrights, chosen from a submission total of 900 nationwide and internationally. They submitted 10-minute and short plays to our series that addressed the theme of 2020: “Life Inspired”.
A Happy Holidays to everyone. Please stay safe as you gather with loved ones and friends to celebrate Hanukkah, which begins today, and also Christmas.
~ Itinerant Theatre
