- Theatre of the Square
For Theatre in the Square's 30th anniversary season, the Marietta playhouse has debuted a new logo along with a fresh slate of plays for its 2011 season. Among more than 30 entrants, Mita Beach designed the winning logo, a vaguely Tiki-looking take on the masks of tragedy and comedy. The season opens on Aug. 10 with the bittersweet dramedy On Golden Pond, the company's first production in Sep. 1982. The additional mainstage productions include:
Ghost-Writer (Sept. 28 - Oct. 30), a romantic mystery that's clever, witty, and thoughtful; The Ladies Man (Jan. 18 - Feb. 26), based on the classic farce by Georges Feydeau, Tailleur Pour Dames; Flyin' West (Mar. 7 - Apr. 8), by Atlanta's own Pearl Cleage; and Tuna Does Vegas (Apr. 25 - May 27), the final installment in the Tuna series.
In addition to the five Main Stage productions, Theatre in the Square will bring back two audience favorites for the holidays, Sanders Family Christmas (Nov. 22 - Jan. 1) and The 1940's Radio Hour (Dec. 17 - Jan. 1). The 1940's Radio Hour will be performed off-site at Southern Polytechnic University's Joe Mack Wilson Theatre. For the littlest theatre-goers, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! will run October 9 - 21 at the Earl Strand Theatre.
The company adds a bonus show on the Alley Stage, Red Letter Jesus (Feb. 4 - Mar. 8), a premiere featuring the words of Jesus from the books Matthew, Mark and Luke, performed by Brad Sherrill, which sounds like a variation on Sherrill's The Gospel of John.
