Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre’s 2017 season will be announced at the annual Fall Membership Party on Thursday, Sept. 29.
The big announcement event will come at 6:30 p.m. at the Conway home of Dr. Mary Ruth Marotte, AST’s executive director, 4915 College Ave. The night’s festivities will include hors d’oeuvres, drinks, as well as an art show and sale in coordination with Conway’s ArtsFest, in which of a portion of all proceeds will benefit AST's 2017 season. It will also feature special performances by cast members of AST’s touring production of Twelfth Night, currently traveling to high schools in Faulkner County and with three performances scheduled at The Lantern Theatre in Conway Sept. 30-Oct. 2.
“Our 2017 summer season will build on the momentum we generated in last year’s 10th anniversary season by introducing audiences to more of Shakespeare’s wonderful works, as well as delighting young and old with a very popular American musical,” Marotte said. “We’re very excited to unfold our plans for next season.”
Admission to the party is free to all 2017 AST members, with membership donations taken at the door. Membership to AST begins at $50 per family.
Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre is the state’s only professional Shakespeare company and is proud to make its home on the University of Central Arkansas campus. Each summer, AST offers full productions of a range of Shakespeare's works, as well as other plays and musicals that help fulfill AST's mission to entertain, engage, and enrich the community.
