Something New For You

Something New For You

November 13, 2020

We have a great new opportunity to support a local theatre institution and maybe add some new entertainment to our continued confinement. The Evergreen Playhouse is making available this seasons shows online. All for $25! The shows are what is called “staged readings” and could be the new adventure (from your living room) you were looking for!

This theatre has been around for 61 years and counting. Per the article in this last Tuesdays Chronicle they are not letting Covid-19 get in their way of providing local entertainment. They are recording five “staged readings” this season and for a season ticket of $25 per family you get unlimited access to the shows.

Evergreen Playhouse 2020-2021

In order to make this happen during restrictions the theatre players created COVID Pods (the actors were either family member residing together or they were quarantining together) and limited their rehearsals and did the filming in one take. I am really impressed with their ingenuity in getting this done under such restricted circumstances.

The Evergreen Playhouse website describes the productions this way:

“These will be staged readings with scripts in hand and minimal props/costumes/set. The actors and crew will be masked up during the rehearsal process. For the “performance”, they will unmask and continue social distancing. The performance will be recorded live (whatever happens, happens!) and will be released to our OFTS Subscribers the next day.”

What are the shows?

  • Reunited Shorts by Len Cuthbert An evening of theatre comprising unique short plays about reunions. They are about the awkward, humorous and emotional experience of humans coming together … again. Released October 26, 2020.
  • The Controversial Rescue of Fatty the Pig by Catherine Bush Cherry Blevins’ house has burned down—her second house in five years. As four people tell the judge their version of what happened that night and why, they begin to reveal not only the events leading up to the fire, but also all the lost hopes and dreams that make them what they are today. Also why in the world was Cherry keeping a pig for a pet?! Released November 23, 2020.
  • It’s What’s for Dinner and Other Short Comedies by Jonathan Graham A collection of four short comedies about the modern world. The Politics of food, the aftermath of Talk Like a Pirate Day, a Yuletide Smackdown, and a very odd job interview makes for an entertaining night of comedy. Released December 14, 2020.
  • All Rights Reserved by Michael Ragozzino The marketing directors of PharmaHope Inc. are mere hours from the start of a massive production run, but they’re still scrambling to come up with a name for their product! To make matters worse, the CEO sends in a naïve, newly graduated go-getter with fresh ideas but an annoying case of morality. Fast-paced and funny, All Rights Reserved holds up a mirror to one of the most absurd practices of modern society, the marketing of prescription drugs. Released January 11, 2021.
  • Writers’ Runaround by Thomas Hischak The literary world is turned upside down in this funny and clever program of six comic playlets. Jane Austen, Ernest Hemingway, Dorothy Parker and Oscar Wilde argue about Star Wars and Harry Potter in a sports bar; Homer confronts his agent about his new epic poem; Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson meet through a computer dating service; a contemporary couple encounters literary. Released February 22, 2021.
