Colonial Players 66th Season

Another milestone (our 65th season!) is celebrated and behind us, and we’re on our way to creating another year of passionate, polished theatre for you and ourselves. It is the collaboration of enthusiastic audiences and energetic playmakers that fuels our hearts and imaginations and we are so grateful for your support.

Season Sixty-Six begins with the wistful comedy, Rocket Man, by Stephen Dietz. In October, Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men will march onto the stage. It will be followed in November by Colonial Players’ holiday tradition, A Christmas Carol, by Richard Wade and Dick Gessner – and this year for the first time, you may make it part of your subscription series. In January, CP will chase away the winter chills with the explosively funny comedy about a man who can’t tell the truth and his servant who can’t tell a lie: The Liar, written by Pierre Corneille, adapted by David Ives.

It is CP’s wish to present a series of American Standards for the nostalgia of our older audience members or introduction to our younger patrons. Therefore, in February, we will present the taut drama, Watch On The Rhine by Lillian Hellman. As spring returns, it will bring the sparkling musical, Ernest In Love by Anne Crosswell and Lee Pockriss, based on Oscar Wilde’s classic The Importance of Being Ernest. Finally, we will wrap up the season in June with Christopher Durang’s whacked-out comedy, Why Torture Is Wrong and the People Who Love Them.

We are making Season Sixty-Six an enticing blend of new and old, comedy and drama, presented with your pleasure in mind. Join us!
