As you may have heard, Theater Schmeater is in the process of finding and moving to a new home. While it’s a little daunting, we look forward to meeting this challenge and finding a new location that will host the dreams and memories of the next generation of artists and audiences. While our old home is filled with the ghosts of productions past, no theater is just the bricks and mortar that houses it. A theater is the place where the amalgam of artists, patrons and audiences meet to share what is essentially an ephemeral group dream.
We’ve been in our basement for 21 years. Maybe its past time for The Schmee to get out of the basement and into the world. To give up the middle of the stage columns that have exasperated designers and directors, to gain some height so lighting designers can get some angles, to maybe add some seats. To discover the challenges that a new venue will demand.
With your patience and understanding, and our dedication and hard work, The Schmee will land in a new nest that will hatch new dreams. And take flight. (Ok, sometimes the eager English Lit. college sophomore pokes his head out and I cant beat him back into submission—he’s younger than me—but you get the point.)
