Welcome back and Happy New Year! Lots of food has been had, family and friends were greeted with joy, and fun was had by all, but we’re glad to be back working in the theatre after a refreshing holiday break. We’re back full force this spring with a hit lineup of shows here at the Bonstelle Theatre: Fences, the 86th annual Spring Dance Concert, and Urinetown.
Kicking off the year is the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-Winning show Fences by August Wilson. This production is about an African American father and son and their struggle for hope against the bleak background of unfulfilled dreams set in the American Civil Rights era. Guest director Lynch Travis is directing this particular piece, and guest artist Will Bryson will play the part of Troy. We’re eager to not only work with our guests, but also to share this piece of history with the greater Detroit area.
We recently worked with the Communication Department at Wayne State for a promotional photo shoot for Fences. It’s amazing the number of people needed for a successful shoot, but it’s a lot of fun.
If you’d like to join us in Fences, don’t hesitate to call our box office, open Tuesday through Saturday, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm, to order your tickets by calling 313-577-2960, or reserve your tickets online by visiting Bonstelle.com. We can’t wait to see you at the theatre!
