Greetings,

 

TPoP’s 99th Season is underway!  

 

We are full speed ahead with 2 great shows, with 2 more in the wings.   

***Next Show - "And The Winner Is" - Written by Mitch Albom, and

Directed by Kevin Paul Wixsom.  August 16-18, and 23-25 – K-111.

*** In October - Music Theatre International’s MAMMA MIA!  

 

For the next few years, we’re celebrating our 100th Season, as one of the oldest Community Theatre Companies in the USA.  TPoP will retake our place as THE driving force for Community Theater in Pittsfield.  The schools need us, the community needs us.  Our times need us!  

 

We have agreed to another year in residence at BCC. It’s gonna cost more, so we need to grow our membership and re-invigorate our finances and programming.  To do all this, we need your help!

 

That’s why we’re announcing a huge Re-Membership Drive! 

We’re also coming up with a Season Sponsorship Drive. 

We need you back. 

 

*If you’re a past member, renew now for $20 only.  

 

Our goal is 100 members by Summer 2021! 

*Our Initial rate is $25, but now….. 

*Free year-long memberships to anyone who is a cast member or production committee member on any TPOP show, (for the first year.) 

*Free student memberships,                                                                                

*Rolling renewals of only $20 annually based on month you joined.  

*Buy a ticket at any show, join TPoP for just $20.  

 

Fill out page at end of this message to sign up, or just come to any show. 

If you’re in the free categories, enter to get on our mailing lists, so we can remind you next year.  “Like” Town Players of Pittsfield on Facebook. 

 

We need help with marketing, underwriting, play selection, production committees for upcoming shows, and an overall infusion of energy and enthusiasm.  Come work on a show with us, and be a part of the action. 

We’re updating our 1995 By-Laws, and we invite your input for potential shows going forward.  Visit www.townplayers.org  to post suggestions. 

 

Town Players has a long and storied history, and we’re dedicated to moving into the next century.  We’re bringing people back, and will do everything we can to support and incubate the next generation of talent.  

 

We will make absolutely certain that every show we put up going forward has the necessary support and encouragement to succeed!  So we need YOU!  

Come help us nurture the next generation. 

 

Town Players has been around for a long time, and we’re the ones here now. Let’s fill the theater, prepare for the Curtain Rise.  It’s Scene Change, and Places, please…..
