BOONE, IA — The Boone Community Theater recently announced its 2019-2020 season line-up, including pirates, an imaginary rabbit, a romantic comedy and Miss Marple’s keen sleuthing.
The season kicks-off in September with “The Pirates of Penzance,” a comedy by W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, directed by the father-son team of Christopher and Gershom Levi. December will feature “Harvey” by Mary Chase, directed by Susan Herrick.
February’s event will be the 1950’s romantic comedy “Sabrina Fair” by Samuel Taylor, directed by Pamela Webster. The regular season will conclude with “A Murder is Announced,” an Agatha Christie murder mystery to be directed by Garry Gardner and Brandon Windus.
Season tickets are on sale now through Sept. 8 at the discounted price of $70, which covers admission for four shows, including a dinner theater and a musical.
“We have additional costs now that BCT has to rent an auditorium space and lighting for every performance,” said Boone Community Theater President Susan Herrick. “However, BCT is right in line with other community theatres in the area. It’s still a great value for live theatre close to home, plus your ticket helps to support the arts in Boone.”
Purchased separately, tickets for regular shows will be $15 for adults, with a discount for senior citizens and students. All dinner theater seats will be $40 per person.
Season tickets may be purchased on-line or at the theatre’s open house to be held Friday, Sept. 6 from 5-8 p.m. The open house at 705 Story St. will feature refreshments, live entertainment, a ’70s costume contest and memorabilia from BCT’s past 44 years of shows.
The Boone Community Theater was founded as a non-profit organization in 1975 to be a source of entertainment and involvement for people in the Boone area.
