What’s new at Evening Star Productions

The first half of Evening Star Productions’ second season concluded on May 3rd after a sold out weekend of The Addams Family – A New Musical Comedy at Sol Theatre in Boca Raton.  Their production of The Last Five Years will run at Sol from July 16 – August 2nd, and Bug by Tracy Letts will run from August 12th – 29th at Infinite Abyss in Ft. Lauderdale.  Sol Children Theatre, also housed at Sol Theatre, will present the innovative musical comedy The Mystery of Edwin Drood (June 12-28); Thumbelina (August 27 – September 6) will close out their season.

Both companys’ 2014-2015 seasons were extremely successful in terms of both ticket sales and recognition.  A large percentage of patrons who attended one Evening Star production returned to see a second, and even a third.  And Sol Children Theatre attendance numbers also rose.

Sol and Evening Star founder and Artistic Director Rosalie Grant is already deep into preparation for next season. “Sol Theatre’s 2015-2016 season needed to be an exciting one – being Sol Children’s 14th and Evening Star’s 3rd seasons respectively,” Grant explains.  “The big question of course, was how to equal or top our previous seasons and shows? I carefully took each company’s mission statement into consideration,” Grant continues.  “Evening Star will open with 35MM a Musical Exhibition, a regional premiere – we’re only the 4th theatre in the country to stage this difficult, contemporary musical.  We’ll follow that up with the still-relative theatre classic, David Mamet’s Oleanna, and close our season with the hysterical British comedy Murdered to DeathSol Children will open with the funny, clever, and beloved classical musical Once Upon a Mattress; we’ll continue the classic theme with the family-favorite, but seldom staged Around the World in 80 Days, and close with a ground-breaking project directed and adapted by Seth Trucks – William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  I am over the moon excited with each choice; our audiences are in for another season of Sol Theatre-style theatrical delights!”

Evening Star Productions’ mission is to offer serious young adult actors, stage managers, and designers the opportunity to push the boundaries of their knowledge and talent in a safe and highly professional environment, and to afford them the opportunity to work with professionals in their chosen fields.  Grant’s choices will allow the company to further those goals with her talented casts and crew combinations.

Founded by artistic director/producer Grant in 2002, and soon to be celebrating their fourteenth season, Sol Children Theatre’s goal is to provide children with a safe, secure, and highly professional theatre experience.   The company’s  three 2015-2016 productions will not only fulfill the Sol Children Theatre’s mission, but will allow Sol students and actors, as well as their audiences, the opportunity to experience an exciting, eclectic, and extremely enjoyable season of theatre.
