2020-2021 Season Announced by Falcon Theatre

FT_logoFalcon Announces 2020-2021 Season

Our doors may be closed, but we at Falcon Theatre have been hard at work, planning for a day in the not-too-distant future when we welcome back our friends and family to the theater. In the interim period, we have produced some online content (with more to follow) for the public’s enjoyment.

As you know, social distancing requirements and other restrictions have been detrimental to the livelihood of many businesses; this is especially true for arts organizations like Falcon that typically rely on audience gatherings for survival.

Many of our patrons have asked how they can help Falcon weather this unanticipated storm. A great way to do just that is to purchase a Falcon Theatre Flex Pass. You’ll provide Falcon with some much-needed income, and you’ll also have your tickets ready for next season when our doors open. Flex Passes purchased now will remain valid for the entire 2020-2021 season.

We at Falcon are proud to announce our slate of plays for the 2020-2021 season. First things first: For all of us who were heartbroken that our productions of The Agitators and Silent Sky didn’t make it onto the Falcon stage, you’ll be happy to know that those two shows were not canceled…merely postponed. These two amazing shows will get their time on the Falcon stage during our 2020-21 season.

THE AGITATORS by Mat Smart
A riveting story about the friendship that persisted through the years between Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass as both fought tirelessly for the rights of others.  The play struggles with the question “Do you believe there can be a country for all?”

August 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28 & 29, 2020

DAISY by Sean Devine
Based on true events, Daisy explores the moment in television history that launched the age of negative advertising, and forever changed how we elect our leaders. War was the objective. Peace was the bait. Everyone got duped.

September 25, 26, October 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 & 10, 2020

SILENT SKY by Lauren Gunderson
The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

November 20, 21, 27, 28, December 3, 4 & 5, 2020

BETRAYAL by Harold Pinter
Moving backward in time, from the end of an affair to its beginning, the play throws into relief the little lies and oblique remarks that, in this time-reverse, reveal more than direct statements, or overt actions, ever could.

January 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, February 4, 5 & 6, 2021

WELL by Lisa Kron
Well is about the mystery of human personalities, told through an hysterical art-performance-gone-wrong, proving that the people you think you know intimately are often the hardest to know at all.

March 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, April 1, 2 & 3, 2021

BEN BUTLER by Richard Strand
When an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary, General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma—follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history?

May 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 & 22, 2021

We’re so eager to have people back at the theater to share these amazing productions with us. Again, please consider purchasing a Flex Pass (falcontheater.net/tickets-information/flex-passes/ ).  Your support keeps Falcon Theatre strong now and in the future.

Thank you for keeping the arts alive.

Sincerely,

Ted Weil
Producing Artistic Director

THE AGITATORS Postponed at Falcon Theatre

FT_logoCOVID-19 Update:

It is with great disappointment that Falcon has decided to reschedule our production of THE AGITATORS in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The health and well-being of our patrons, artists, staff and volunteers is of utmost importance to us and we believe that this is the most prudent course of action at this time.

We are currently discussing possible dates for rescheduling THE AGITATORS and will post those as soon as possible. We will also be contacting everyone who has already purchased tickets with detailed instructions and options for refunds, exchanges, etc. Please be patient with us while we work with our ticket vendor to finalize those details.

At this point, we are moving forward with all plans for our production of Silent Sky in May as scheduled. We will, of course, continue to monitor this quickly changing situation and will communicate any changes to that production if they need to happen.

We encourage everyone to follow the CDC’s recommendations on basic health and safety practices including frequent hand washing, etc. Details on those guidelines can be found here: CDC Link

Thank you to all our patrons and artists for supporting us through this challenging time.

Sincerely,
Ted Weil
Producing Artistic Director
