The show must go on, fingers crossed division ...

Despite losing an entire season of main stage productions to the COVID-10 pandemic, Putnam County Playhouse has optimistically announced its scheduled slate of plays for its 60th season.

The four shows on the Playhouse schedule (dates not yet announced) at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre in Greencastle are “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “Pillow Talk,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “You Can’t Take It with You.” Youth and children’s workshops will also be held in 2021.

Season ticket information for the four shows will be mailed to Playhouse supporters next spring.

While losing the entire production season at the barn theater, the Playhouse still managed to produce a youth theater workshop on the bandshell stage at Robe-Ann Park, along with a virtual children’s workshop and an adult production of “Shakespeare in the Park” in late September at Robe-Ann.

“In these ways we were able to salvage some live theater for the community,” Board of Directors President Michael McClaine said in a letter to supporters. “We hope and pray that in 2021, PCPH will be back to something closer to our ‘normal’ season.”

Addressing last summer’s cancellations, McClaine noted, “Although we had planned a great season, it became clear that we could not present shows in the barn while maintaining appropriate safety protocols.”

Those interested in becoming a supporter can do so at several levels: Member, $25-$49; Patron, $50-$99; Friend, $100-$249; Donor, $250-$499; Angel, $500-$999; Benefactor, $1,000 and above.
