    We are 15 days away from our reopening night and the first performance of Mary and Me, can you believe it?
     
    Our safety plan requires the involvement of one Front of House Manager and one Usher on duty for each show for a total of 16 shifts, that's a lot!

    New Show Announcement: "Proof"
     
    "Proof" was the very first show to be suspended because of the pandemic back in March. We're excited to announce that this wonderful show is coming back to the Players' Ring November 13 - November 22! Don't miss your chance to catch this fascinating production with Nicole Jones, Jen Henry, Jacob Randlett, Paul Strand, directed by Joe Nelson.
     
    About the Play: Catherine has inherited her late father’s mathematical brilliance, but she is haunted by the fear that she might also share his debilitating mental illness. She has spent years caring for her now-deceased father, and upon his death, she feels left alone to pick up the pieces of her life without him. Caught between a new-found connection with Hal, one of her father’s former students, and the reappearance of her sister, Claire, Catherine finds both her world and her mind growing increasingly unstable.
     
    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, David Auburn’s Proof is a passionate, intelligent story about fathers and daughters, the nature of genius, and the power of love.

    Ireland 1986. Fifteen year old Hannah begins a series of conversations with a statue of the Virgin Mary in a grotto. Hannah lives in a claustrophobic small town. Sure, she has friends, but no one who understands her, no one she can confide in who will listen to her. And she is going to need a lot of understanding. She is pregnant. Inspired by a true story, Mary and Me is a compellingly original imagining of a young woman’s search for understanding and meaning. Get your tickets today.
