Pierre Players Community Theatre is pleased to announce that it has rescheduled “A Little Piece of Heaven” for Oct. 22-24 and Oct. 28-30. Originally planned for late February/early March, the production was canceled due to concerns at the time with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and not enough people at auditions to cast the production.
“A Little Piece of Heaven” will be part of Pierre Players’ current 2020-2021 season, meaning that season members will be able to see the production as part of their current membership. Pierre Players next season will begin in January 2022, and the show lineup will be announced later this year.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused or contributed to a host of challenges in producing the types of Pierre Players' shows and seasons to which our patrons have become accustomed. To help us plan for future activities, we invite patrons to complete a brief Pierre Players Community Theater 2021 Membership Survey at pierreplayers.com.
Show dates for Pierre Players’ current production “Radium Girls,” are April 30-May 2 and May 6-8. A reminder that audience members will be required to wear masks. Those who are not comfortable attending a live production at the theater or unable to attend in person can view the production virtually on May 6-8. Tickets for “Radium Girls’ will go on sale on April 19.
In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, “Radium Girls” traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, “Radium Girls” offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth and the commercialization of science.
Pierre Players’ next auditions will be for “Man of La Mancha” on May 16-18, followed by auditions for “A Little Piece of Heaven” on Aug. 16 at the Grand Opera House. For more information about Pierre Players’ upcoming productions or auditioning or getting involved, visit pierreplayers.com.
