Our Season 13 opening show

Directed by New York director Joe Goscinski.

Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland.

Our Town by Thornton Wilder, Feb. 5 – 28, 2021

Performances Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30 PM

Directed by Mark Stringham

This heartfelt classic drama by American playwright Thornton Wilder, tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. How do the characters find meaning and contentment with their choices as their dreams, relationships, and futures unfold?

 

Antigone by Sophocles, April 8-May 2, 2021

Performances Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 7:30 PM

Directed by Kelly Roush

The play Antigone begins with two brothers fighting for the kinship of Thebes. Both men die in battle. Their successor and uncle, Creon, decides that one brother will be buried but the other brother will be left on the field of battle. Their sister, Antigone, finds herself having to choose between what she believes to be right, burying her brother, or following the laws of man and facing death herself. What happens when we are forced to choose between doing what we feel is right and what the world is telling us is right?  What forces us to take a stand? What are we willing to die for?

Rethinking the Theatre Space 

A Season 13 update from The Classic Theatre San Antonio:

We long to be together again with our artists and patrons to have a shared experience of live theatre. One of our greatest strengths pre-COVID was the intimacy of our space. In the current environment, it is one of our greatest challenges. We have been working diligently to figure out how to continue producing excellent theatre that is relevant, diverse, entertaining, and transformative, and at the same time keeps our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff safe.

Because of the constraints of our current space, as long as social distancing is required in any form, The Classic will not be able to perform in our theatre. All indications are telling us that social distancing will be necessary well into the year 2021.

Given all of this, The Classic Theatre is making a bold move! Season 13 will be a season of Theatre in the Rough. We are moving outdoors. This will allow us to produce excellent theatre while adhering to proper physical distancing measures. We are working on some exciting collaborations to make this happen.

Our mission has not changed, and as we know more, we will continue to communicate our plans.

We look forward to seeing you, safely, and hopefully soon!

Sincerely,

Thank You To Our Sponsors!
