Coming Soon: Courtyard Theater

Opening night for the new theater is just weeks away
Selinsgrove, PA – Almost 25 people from a wide area of the Susquehanna Valley are anxiously awaiting October 11th. They compromise the cast and crew of the Courtyard Theater’s Initial production of the thriller-musical “Sweeney Todd” and they are nearing the fulfillment of two months worth of casting, rehearsals and set and makeup preparation for the show.
The Management team of Art Lieberman: Producer, Bob Taylor; Artistic Director, Nick Buckman; Technical Director, and Michael Blaustein; Musical Director, and their associates, all feel that they have a unique and entertaining production in store for the audiences that will attend the production.
“There are even some surprises in our casting of the show and a very different staging of it”, says Taylor “but the richness of Stephen Sondheim’s wonderful score is intact”.

“What is also different is our pricing policy for tickets”, jokes Lieberman “it’s hard to find live community theater at $15 a ticket. It is also unusual to find a live theater at a mall and the Susquehanna Valley Mall, here in Selinsgrove, is an important ‘player’ in our production. There even are bonuses offered by some of our sponsors”, he says “for instance Garfield’s Restaurant, located at the entrance to the mall, is offering a 20%-off coupon to our theater-goers. They have been promoting us since they first heard of the theater coming to the mall. I guess they see the benefit to their restaurant to do so. There are also some other businesses sponsoring the theater.”

“Sweeney Todd” performances will run three consecutive weekends at the theater, located just outside JC Penney’s at the mall, starting on Friday night October 11th. All Friday and Saturday shows will start at 7:00 PM and the Sunday matinees will start at 2:00 PM.
Tickets can be purchased at the theater during most afternoons, including weekends, by phone from the box office at (570) 374-0060, or online by going to the theater’s website www.thecourtyartheater.com. The management reminds patrons that the spelling of theater is the American version, theatER, rather than theatRE which is the English version. “That has caused a little confusion”, smiles Lieberman.
