Mountain Community Theater is proud to announce its fresh and audacious 2018 season.
In March, we open with William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, about the planning and aftermath of the assassination of the Roman emperor, directed by the acclaimed local director Bill Peters. Bill last directed at MCT in 2003 when he directed an award-winning production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. That was also the last time that MCT produced a Shakespeare play. We’re delighted to welcome back both Bill and Mr. Shakespeare.
In May, Davis Banta will make his MCT directorial debut with Assassins, the brilliant and multi-Tony Award winning musical about presidential assassins, with music and lyrics by the great Steven Sondheim, and a book by John Weidman.
In September, MCT’s own Kathie Kratochvil directs the historical comedy Shakespeare in Love, adapted for the stage by Lee Hall, based on the movie written by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman. The movie won six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress.
And finally, in November, we return after six years with our own holiday favorite, Miracle on 34th Street, the Play, directed by Peter Gelblum. Peter played Kris Kringle in the last two MCT productions of Miracle.
As always, we’ll also be staging our New Works Night in August, featuring a staged reading of a new play by a local playwright.
2018 season tickets will go on sale in mid-September.
