Leaving Iowa by Tim Clue and Spike Manton

   Opening May

The play is a hilarious, family-friendly comedy that is a toast to the idealism of parents and their dedication to the family road trip, "a frighteningly realistic depiction of a family summer road trip.” 

Frozen, Jr. by Anderson-Lopez, Lopez & Lee  

Opening July

Based on the 2018 Broadway show, this musical brings Princesses Elsa and Anna and Arendelle to life. When danger comes, the two discover their hidden potential and the bond of sisterhood.

Many playful and surreal experiences are surprising the folks of Almost, Maine, where on a magical Midwinter Night, they experience the power of the human heart. 

Almost, Maine by John Cariani

February 2021

Interim Executive Director

Happy Valentine's Day!

   I hate Valentine's Day!  As one of the world's most hopeless romantics, I hate St. Valentine's Day!  I have a hard enough time trying to sort out my own emotional entanglements without having greeting card companies layer on another guilt-ridden holi-day. Do I sound like I'm coming off as a hard-heart-ed Scrooge.  Oops!

   But, I have to admit, this February is just bursting with all kinds of hope and good things for the coming year.

   And Encore is right there trying our very best to share that hope with you for the future.  Besides the amazing classes and workshops coming out of our Education department, we're also offering monthly programs, one in music and another in one-person performances.  But, the highlight of this entire Spring will be the start of our Main Stage performances again.

   Of course, we are not in any way ignoring the COVID-19 pandemic that is still raging!  That would just be foolish.  But, we are hopeful that if we keep our wits about us and insist on proper CDC protocols, we can come together to add some much needed creativeness back into our lives.  To that end, we are beginning to work on a live, in-person theatre event--coming in March--at Rose Center's Prater Hall and, at the same time, provide a "Streaming" version of the play for those wishing to remain at home.

   With all that's going on, I might fall in love with February all over again . . . I might even feel the need to send out Valentine's Day cards!
