The Davis Center for the Performing Arts is still on track to be finished this month, at which point the Rodgers crew will become part of CenterPoint Legacy Theatre. The group will move into their new home next January, and open the 2011 season in February.
“It’s hard to believe it’s getting so close,” said Susan Bellomy, director of marketing and development for the theater.
Among cast and crew, there’s a lot of looking forward. “People are really excited about what the possibilities for the future are,” she said. “There’s a degree of nostalgia, but we’re going to take the Rodgers spirit with us.”
Partially because of the fact that it’s the final show, tickets for “A Christmas Carol” are down to single seats in most shows. For those still looking to get in, Bellomy suggests that Saturday matinees are the best bet for tickets.
“We’re pretty packed,” she said, adding that people could still try for other nights if they wanted. “We usually do waiting lists, and we’re very good at getting people in.”
After a series of open houses through the month of January, the theater company will celebrate their new home with “Hairspray.”
“It’s a fun, contemporary show,” said Bellomy. “It seemed like a great way to open the season.”
