Peninsula Players Theatre announces the 2019 season of The Play’s the Thing, a winter play-reading series. Fully cast readings of the plays will be performed at Björklunden, 7590 Boynton Lane in Baileys Harbor, Feb. 4, March 4 and April 1 at 7 pm. General seating will be available, and there will be no admission fee.
“Peninsula Players Theatre is once again thrilled to bring arts programming to audiences in our traditional off-season,” said Peninsula Players Managing Director Brian Kelsey. “A great variety of plays have been lined up by our Artistic Director, Greg Vinkler, for all to enjoy. Past play readings included theatrical gems and new works that delighted community event attendees.”
Apparitions, a Door County-themed play by Kristine Thatcher, will be read Feb. 4. Apparitions was commissioned and premiered at Peninsula Players in 1995. The play explores actual events and historical figures in and around Death’s Door. The reading of Apparitions is produced with support from and in coordination with Door County Reads.
The 2019 The Play’s the Thing series also includes Tales of Men and Ghosts, adapted by Steve Pickering from stories by Edith Wharton (March 4); and Love, the Cracksman, a new, fast-paced comedy by Mark Brown (April 1). For more information, visit peninsulaplayers.com.
