Dear Friends of TSS,
I am so pleased to be able to say that our production of The Matchmaker: A Tale drawn from “Emma” by Jane Austen was a sold-out success! To be able to collaborate with our friends at another non-profit, Rockford Plantation, and then to have it be so successful for both organizations was a win-win! Our dance concerts this year were two of the most well-attended and the Tribute to Barbara Barden was indeed just that. We are planning to produce a full, mainstage production of Tyler Rossi’s Verboten, a play with music and swing dance, with a dynamite cast, set in Germany in 1936, March 6, 7 & 8 at the Lancaster Country Day School Theater. This is one you don’t want to miss!
Our work has been recognized by Broadway World Central PA for 2019. Our production of 20th Century Blues by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Susan Miller and directed by Michael Swanson, last April, was nominated for Best Play, Best Ensemble in a Play, Best Actress in a Play (Cynthia Charles), Best Featured Actress in a Play (Rita Clarke, Candace O’Donnell, Donna Schilke and Geraldine WuShanley) and Best Featured Actor in a Play (Josh Dorsheimer). Congratulations to all for the nominations!
With your help, Theater of the Seventh Sister can continue to produce relevant, thought-provoking plays. Thank you for supporting us and making this “little theater company who could” viable! Imagine the possibilities!
Executive and Artistic Director
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, healthy New Year!!
