To all of you who have supported PRIME…we thank you!!!  We are eternally grateful for your continuing support, especially during the pandemic.

 

As we begin to emerge from this past year and a half of shuttered theatres and outdoor performances we continue to reflect.  What will this new world look like for the performing arts?  Living without live theatre for this extended period has made it clearer than ever how necessary it is to all of us.  The importance of that communal experience of coming together in a darkened room to share an inspiring story is a big part of what makes us compassionately human.

 

Contemplating our return to live theatre hasn’t been easy and many small theatres have chosen to continue to ‘wait it out’ because they are unable to meet the challenges both financial and physical needed to make everyone safe, onstage and off.  This makes supporting your favorite performing arts organizations this year more important than ever!

As we began to plan for our first return to live, indoor theatre we found the safety precautions daunting but hopeful.  

There is a way back!  

And we are getting closer with our PRIME VoicesA Staged Reading Series.  But  This past weekend, we had to make the difficult decision to pivot to an online reading of our exciting new play ABUELITA by Nathan Yungerberg.
 

 We are clearly not done with COVID.



But we are thrilled that everyone is staying with the project and on Monday, November 15th, for one night only, we will host an online reading of this amazing new play!


As with all our staged readings, this is our gift to you and is free of charge.  Click here to make a reservation and a private link will be sent to you



We are very excited to bring you ABUELITA but these are clearly only the baby steps.

 We have learned SO much: 

 -where to get PCR and rapid antigen tests and how much they cost.

 -way more about HVAC systems than we as artists ever thought we’d need to know and what venues have ones that meet the standards we need as a professional theatre.

 -the extra staff that will be needed to keep everyone safe during rehearsals and in performance when we start work on our full production, THE ROOMMATE by Jen Silverman, next spring.

-the extra manhours that will be necessary to allow the designers and technical crew to keep everyone safe while doing their work of adding the set, props, lights, and sound to the production.

-how many additional front of house staff will needed to check our audience’s vaccination status and maintain safe distancing in the theatre.

 

Thanks again for all your support and we hope you will join us for ABUELITA on November 15th!!!
