On May 18, StageCenter Theatre will reveal the plays they will be producing for the 2016-2017 season. A reception will begin at 7pm and then the announcement program will begin at 7:30pm. Opportunities to volunteer, become a member, advertise, donate, and underwrite will be available at this time as well.
StageCenter will hold their annual meeting at the end of the program in which they will have detailed updates from the Board of Governors to include information about new board members, finances, and discussion of the search for a new home, among other things.
StageCenter is Bryan/College Station’s first community theatre. It began in 1964 with a group of people who spent much of the first year just reading plays together and performing some public readings. Vic Wiening, a professor of English at Texas A&M University, and William Andrew, a local lawyer and pathologist, were the founders. They were joined in their efforts by Louise Rotsch, Sol Kline, David & Valerie Woodcock, Wanda Daisa, Rebecca & Wendell Landmann, and Brookes & Annaliese Cofer. In StageCenter’s 5-decade history, approximately 500 dramas, comedies, farces, musicals, and melodramas have come to life on stage.
