Summer theater schedule announced
Posted May 22, 2001; 08:36 a.m.
After two summers in the dark, the lights will go up on Princeton Summer Theater this year.
The summer theater was cancelled in 1999 and 2000, allowing its home in Hamilton Murray Theater to undergo a million-dollar renovation.
The 2001 season will feature four mainstage shows, supplemented by guest performances and a show geared toward children. The shows and dates are:
-- "Barefoot in the Park" by Neil Simon, June 21-24 and July 5-8.
-- "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, June 28-July 1, July 12-15 and July 19-22.
-- "Much Ado About Nothing" by William Shakespeare, July 26-29 and Aug. 9-12.
-- "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" by Paul Zindel, Aug. 2-5 and Aug. 16-19.
Performances will begin at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays, with matinees at 2 p.m. Sundays. Ticket prices are $12.50 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7 for students and children. Additional discounts are available to subscribers and to large groups.
A separate show for children will be presented by Princeton Summer Theater at 2 p.m. on five Saturday afternoons: July 7, July 14, July 21, Aug. 4 and Aug. 11. The theater also will play host to Eidolon Arts, a local theater troupe, at 8 p.m. July 10-11 and July 17-18.
In addition, Princeton Summer Theater will offer drama workshops for children and internships for high school students this summer.
