NEW & NOTABLE
Due to the Covid-19 health crisis, we have reimagined our 2020/21 season to include a new slate of plays that we believe will best suit the times and the specialized safety needs of producing theater during Covid-19, including Plays from the Lantern Archives and newly created productions of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol by Anthony Lawton, Christopher Colucci, and Thom Weaver; Molly Sweeney by Brian Friel, directed by Peter DeLaurier; The Plague by Albert Camus and adapted by Neil Bartlett, directed by Charles McMahon; and an additional play to be announced shortly, directed by Steve H. Broadnax III. Dates for all plays and events will be announced throughout the season as they are confirmed. For the latest updates, make sure you're on our mailing list.UPDATED 4/10/21
We miss seeing you in person at St. Stephen's Theater, and we know you miss live theater as much as we do. With daily progress being made on the coronovirus vaccine front, we remain optimistic about a return to live performances during the 2021/22 season. But while we wait, we will continue to safely create virtual theater experiences that will help us stay connected with you, our audiences, and the students who participate in our education programs. Creating virtual performances also enables the Lantern to provide professional opportunities for our highly talented local theater artists, including actors, directors, designers, stage managers, technicians, and everyone else who works behind the scenes to bring these great stories to life.
Theater is an essential and treasured form of storytelling. We look forward to sharing these virtual productions, characterized by the Lantern's aesthetic and literary sensibility.
