Provision Theater announces new home and new season

It’s always great news when you hear that a theatre company has found a place of their own: a home, which in turn creates a place which better nurtures a company’s creative process.  So it’s wonderful to hear that Provision Theater Company will produce their 2009-10 season in their brand new home, located at 1001 W. Roosevelt Road.

0910-cotton-patch To celebrate the space, the theater company will host a gala reception on Saturday, September 12; a date that also marks the official opening of their season with a bigger and bolder version of one of Provision’s all time smash hit productions, Harry Chapin’s Cotton Patch Gospel, running September 10 through November 8.  Following will be a new take on William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew from January 27 through March 7, starring Tim Gregory and Susan Moniz

Rounding out the season will be a World Premiere production of The Hiding Place, based on the autobiography of Corrie ten Boom and written by Artistic Director Tim Gregory.  The show will run from April 7 through May 23.   The story tells the inspiring tale of Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom.  With the World War II invasion of Holland , the ten Boom family joined the underground resistance to help save Jewish families.  Their lives were turned upside down when they were arrested and imprisoned in concentration camps themselves.  The play tells the dramatic tale of survival and hope as the ten Boom family is left with nothing to cling to but their faith.

0910-homepage-current-seasonThe performance schedule for the season is as follows:  Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. ($28) and Sundays at 3 p.m. ($25).  Select Wednesday and Thursday preview performances will be held at 8 p.m. ($22).  Ticket prices include free parking.  Groups of 10 or more are 10% off.  For reservations, phone 866.811.4111.

Provision Theater Company is devoted to producing works of hope, reconciliation and redemption; works that challenge us to explore a life of meaning and purpose.
