StageDoor to perform
`Murder on the Orient Express’

StageDoor Theatre is set to perform “Murder on the Orient Express,” a whodunit play featuring a cast with multiple dialects.

“It’s been so great to be back in the theater again,” director Jay Louden said, calling the play suspenseful, funny and perfect for a family evening.

The play opens Sept. 24 and runs through Oct. 17. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays.

StageDoor is selling tickets with a minimum quantity of two, and requests all audience members wear masks and provide either proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test.

Venue Theatre to perform
“Romeo and Juliet”

Venue Theatre will reflect on relatable teenage tropes through its production of “Romeo and Juliet,” directed by Elizabeth Tanner.

While not many local groups are dabbling in Shakespeare right now, artistic director Amy Fletcher saw an opportunity to mirror teenage life in quarantine. The show features themes of isolation, young love and suicide.

Fletcher says the play gives “the essence of Romeo and Juliet,” and the show is about an hour long. She thinks this production is a great way to bring together the community around theater.

The play will run Oct. 21-24 at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at thevenuetheatre.com.

CHS, Venue, StageDoor to
Collaborate on ‘All Together Now’

Hosted at Conifer High School, Venue Theatre, StageDoor Theatre and Conifer High School will join together Nov. 12-14 to perform “All Together Now.”

Music Theatre International created a review show featuring hit songs from well-known musicals, including “Matilda,” “High School Musical” and more. By giving the rights to this show away for free, MTI has created a fundraiser for small theaters across the country that will perform the show on the same weekend

Amy Fletcher, Venue Theatre’s artistic director, says she has had great community support as she plans this group production. While coordinating three theater groups can be tricky, it is also exciting, and she sees her mission coming to life.

Tickets are available at thevenuetheatre.com and will be available soon on the Conifer High School website.
