Elmwood Playhouse Reopens Its Doors
Community Theatre to Resume Live Performances After Pandemic Shutdown
NYACK, NY – Elmwood Playhouse is set to reopen its doors for live indoor performances once again. The community theatre has been in operation since 1948, but like all performance venues, has been dark since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Elmwood Playhouse will be presenting new one-acts, as well as the main stage show that was shuttered right before its opening night in March 2020.
In July, Elmwood Playhouse will partner with Stage Left Children’s Theatre to produce the play “Juvie,” written by Jerome McDonough. Then in August, Elmwood will present two, one- act original works: “Step” by Rick Apicella, and “The Munson Card” by Steve Bermack. In September, “Born Yesterday” written by Garson Kanin, finally has its opening after being postponed for a year and a half due to COVID-19. The award winning family show “Far Fetched Fables” concludes the shortened Elmwood Playhouse 2021 season. Elmwood is in preparation for a four show season starting January 2022.
Elmwood Playhouse is a non-profit community theatre that has provided live performance for over 70 years and is located on 10 Park Street in Nyack, NY. For more information, call the Elmwood Playhouse Box Office at (845) 353-1313, or visit www.elmwoodplayhouse.com.
