It’s hard to believe that 2016 is upon us! My name is Franklin Trapp and I am the Producer of the Forestburgh Playhouse. We are a professional summer theatre located in the heart of the Catskills. This year we celebrate our 70th season of entertaining audiences in Sullivan County and beyond. I am extremely excited to be a part of this blog–especially since we are so lucky to have so many exciting options in the Hudson Valley and the Catskills when it comes to live theatre.
Many people ask me if I am enjoying my time off since the Playhouse isn’t open. It’s the exact opposite I tell them! Right now is a critical time for the Playhouse–we are hiring our creative teams, beginning the casting process, fundraising, beginning our new promotions…and more! I think through this blog and other means, we can really educate folks on how much goes into planning a show, a season, a weekend performance. Lots of love and work make the theatre happen. My next post will be about the casting process and how we gather over 50 professionals from across the country to comprise our season. Until then, buy a ticket, see a show, and support live theatre near you! For more information about the Forestburgh Playhouse, go to www.fbplayhouse.org
