Plans for the 2018 Season

Draper Arts Council is busy putting together an exciting lineup of productions for our 2018 season! If you have any suggestions for shows you’d like to see, send us an email from the Contact page. (And if you’d like to do more than just suggest, come to one of our board meetings, to see how you can get more involved. We are always looking for more people, especially people with ideas.)

At this point we are only exploring possibilities, but we plan to repeat our ever-popular Broadway Family Favorites in April, followed up by two major Broadway shows planned for the Draper Amphitheater’s summer 2018 season.

It is our plan to change the Big Band Tribute a bit this year. We will definitely be doing a “tribute” show, but exactly how that develops will depend on selection of a director.

Most likely Kevin McClellan will be back with his Broadway Kidz, since this will be 20 years in a row, and who would ever stop at 19? More details on that as we progress.

Last year we debuted the Amphitheater Stage as an exciting new venue for small shows, with the fantastically successful (if occasionally chilly) Daddy Long Legs. Producer Gordon Jones is considering one of A.A. Milne’s smaller plays (yes, he wrote plays, as well as children’s books — in fact the children’s books were an aberration in a long and successful career as playwright, novelist, essayist, and social critic). Gordon is thinking perhaps of The Ivory Door, an exploration of the role outward appearances play in shaping identities, or The Perfect Alibi, one of two murder mysteries Milne wrote.

We hope to have news soon about a partnership with a local school which will give us much more flexibility to produce smaller plays, both musicals (think She Loves Me, or The Fantasticks) and “straight” plays (think Shakespeare or Holes).

In short, there is a lot going on, and we would love YOU to be part of it. Leave us some feedback, or come and join us. Our next meeting will be Monday 8 January 2018 at 8 pm in the Board Room at City Hall.
