In the Spotlight
53: 'Zombies,' Ohio Premiere, Classics
The Harlem Road playhouse is preparing for a tuneful attack of Zombies from The Beyond. The musical comedy is the first production of Curtain Players Season 53.
The community theatre announced the 2015-2016 schedule on Friday March 27.
Zombies is followed by the Ohio premiere of a family drama, a stage adaptation of a beloved Christmas film, a 40th anniversary revival of a popular play that premiered in Columbus, and a pair of Pulitzer Prize winning classics.
Add to that the Simply Staged readers theatre weekend, a showcase of new works by central Ohio and Curtain Players playwrights.
"The new season is a great mix of style and theme for those active with our organization and for our audiences," said Jill Taylor, Curtain Players president. "We love to challenge our volunteers and supporters as well as entertain and engage.
"This is our 53rd season of accessible and affordable quality theatre for Westerville, Galena, and central Ohio,” said Taylor. “We are so very proud of that legacy."
