Looking back, it would be easy to focus on what was put on hold this past year. At Town Theatre, the oldest continuously operating community theatre in America, that translated into postponed shows, delayed in-person arts education for our youth, and, in general, the pause of our arts-centered lives. Despite those challenges, there was still a lot of good.
Musical theatre parades, outdoor theatre, virtual classes, and online concerts bridged the gap until Town Theatre could re-open in the fall and ultimately finish our 101st season. Cue 2022, which brings comedy with The Red Velvet Cake War, inspiration with a new musical by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star, and hauntingly beautiful music with Jekyll & Hyde. Now is an exciting time to support Town. We’re focusing on our Have a Seat Campaign, which allows you to name a seat in our historic auditorium. The opportunity to create, practice and perform at Columbia’s Town Theatre is something we never take for granted.
