The Arts at Center Street: Remembering our Beginnings

It's hard to believe that we are nearing the close of our second full season here at the Arts! As we gear up for ALIEN: The Musical (hitting the stage December 5-7, 2014), I can't help but remember our first “Evening of One Act Plays," which had its debut around this time of year, December 2013. The show was a hit! After attending the Saturday matinee, some people immediately bought tickets to return to see the evening showing. I was flummoxed, standing on the other side of a long season of hard work, to see that my efforts, and those of my colleagues, had produced something that was not only enjoyable, but so impactful for our audiences that they wanted to soak in the experience twice - in one day!

This is the kind of experience I hope to bring to all who cross the threshold of the Arts at Center Street. We seek to provide you not just with entertainment, but with an experience that will move, challenge and inspire you. Though a "play" is indeed play in so many respects, we take seriously our goal to make our theater productions available to all demographics, to break the mold that says quality theater is reserved for the elite, and to push the boundaries on what "community" theatre can produce. 

Join us in this journey, and throughout our exciting 2014/15 season!

"It's Elementary" closed "A Night of One Acts" with a bang! This original musical, written and directed by Gregg Garner, was performed with a live band. It was a blast!
