OPEN AIR CABARETS Coming to the Warsaw Federal Incline Theatre Aug. 28-Oct. 10

WFIT_Open Air CabaretsThe shows must go on, safely.

Cincinnati Landmark Productions announces today the ‘Open Air Cabarets at the Incline,’ a series of benefit performances in support of the venerable west side non-profit arts group. All performances will take place on the top deck of the parking garage at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater, with safety in mind.

The series launches on Friday, August 28 and will run Fridays and Saturdays for multiple weekends. All shows will begin at 8pm and last no longer than 90 minutes.

Each audience pod comes with a table and 4 seats. Tables will be sold each night for $80 and will be spaced over 12’ apart on the parking deck, all with great views of a temporary stage next to the building. The musicians and singers will be a collection of Landmark Productions cast favorites and friends, performing songs from hit shows or pop tunes through the years.

Tables are on sale now through the CLP Box Office. Call (513) 241-6550 Monday through Friday from 11am to 5pm. Advance sales are highly encouraged.

Executive Artistic Director Tim Perrino promises a night of needed fun.

“Whether you know us from our 23 years at the Showboat, 19 years at the Covedale or 39 years of Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre – you know that CLP brings the most exciting talent to our stages,” Perrino said. “Up-and-comers, big local names and even stars from National Tours and Broadway will be performing at the ‘Open Air Cabaret’ at the Incline. They’re devoting their time and talent to support our theaters during the crisis. Join them in their support while you enjoy their dazzling performances outdoors at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater.”

All proceed from the events will go toward Landmark Productions operational costs. Due to mandated performance cancellations, the organization estimates a $1.5 million drop in revenue. But facility and overhead fixed costs remain during this trying time. Table sales for the Open Air Cabarets and other important fundraising initiatives will allow the organization to stay financially solvent, until normal operations can resume.

Seating will be capped at 25 tables (100 people) per night, for necessary safety and spacing. Parking for the event will be available in the lower level public parking garage, accessed from Matson Place, or on nearby neighborhood streets.

Carryout food from one of the nearby Incline District restaurants is encouraged; however outside drinks/alcohol will NOT be permitted to be brought on site. No coolers etc. Event staff will sell drinks outside at drink stations or in the lobby bar. Note that the lobby and restrooms will have posted occupancy limits. Landmark officials ask that attendees please respect the guidelines and wear masks inside at all times.

For more information or to purchase tickets, call the Box Office at (513) 241-6550.

THE ODD COUPLE
September 10 – October 4, 2020
By Neil Simon

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. Winner! 1965 Tony Award, Best Author of a Play

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT Cancelled at Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre

CYPT_logoCincinnati Landmark Productions announces the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts.

We had hoped to have by now some realistic timeline that would allow us to rehearse and perform Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s 39th major summer project – even in limited ways.

We continue to have no such timeline: Theatrical performances are not allowed both indoors and outdoors. Without knowing when or how we can rehearse, costume, build sets and do the thousand other things necessary to make the CYPT summer project happen, we have to make this decision now.

Therefore, the auditions for Joseph…Dreamcoat on May 30, 31 and June 1 are cancelled as well.

We hope to keep our CYPT connections alive this summer in some other important ways. We are actively working with local officials to determine if/when smaller-scale outside concerts might be allowed, as well as exploring virtual performance options.

On behalf of the staff, board and volunteers of this organization, we sincerely and primarily hope you and yours are safe and healthy during this difficult time. Our profound gratitude goes out to medical professionals, first responders and other essential workers on the frontlines of this COVID-19 pandemic.

Cincinnati Landmark Productions has a long and storied history of theatrical success, starting in 1982 at Westwood Town Hall, to the Showboat Majestic, the Covedale and Incline theaters, and Madcap Education Center. CLP has done exciting things onstage and in the lives of its patrons. But it all started with Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre and the thousands of young performers, from scores of different schools, sharing the best summers of their lives together.

NEXT summer, the complete CYPT experience will be back – bigger, louder, faster, funnier and more true than ever before.

Director, Founder CLP

WFIT_Sign at nightCLP officials announced today the cancellation of the remainder of the scheduled 2020 Summer Classics Season at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater. This joins the previously canceled production of NEWSIES.

Since the entire slate of shows were shelved this summer, we would like to announce today:

  • We intend to produce the 2020 Summer Classics Season lineup next summer, in 2021. This is pending rights and talent availability and budget considerations.

    o Same shows, same seats, same price, same basic timing!

You might prefer to use this credit on (1) additional tickets to future productions or (2) as a credit for future subscriptions at either the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater or at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts.

Note: if you donated your Newsies tickets to CLP, we will automatically convert your donation back into tickets to the show for next year. If you wish your donation to remain as a tax deductible contribution, please just let us know that.

IMPOSSIBLE DREAM Cancelled at Covedale Center for the Performing Arts

CCPAProgramming Updates:

Without an established timeline for the suspension of the mass gathering ban, and with deadlines to begin rehearsals and create sets, props and costumes, CLP senior staff and board must make the difficult decision to cancel the following productions.

Covedale Season Finale IMPOSSIBLE DREAM Cancelled

CLP officials announced this weekend that the scheduled run of IMPOSSIBLE DREAM: CELEBRATING 100 SHOWS AT THE COVEDALE, which was designed to replace the April run of ALL SHOOK UP, has been officially cancelled.

CLP Executive Artistic Director Tim Perrino explained in a letter to ticket-holders that the company has no way of getting this new production on its feet this month, even if the mass gathering ban were to be lifted in time to re-open our doors.

CLP is asking ticket holders to please consider donating the value of their ALL SHOOK UP/IMPOSSIBLE DREAM tickets to Cincinnati Landmark Productions to help the organization through this difficult period.

Until and unless we hear from ALL SHOOK UP/IMPOSSIBLE DREAM ticket holders, in the meantime, your account in the Cincinnati Landmark Productions ticketing system would be credited the amount of your ticket purchase. This could be used for (1) additional tickets to future productions or (2) as a credit for future subscriptions at either the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater or at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts.

Contact the Box Office at (513) 241-6550 – 11am to 5pm, Monday through Friday – if you wish to make other plans. Or email Box Office Manager Denny Reed at dennyreed@clpshows.org.

Stay tuned, though, because we really want to celebrate with you the milestone of our 100th show at the Covedale Center. We’re hopeful we can try the idea again in the future, and we’ll alert you when we do!
