Playhouse South Community Theatre has just announced that they will be moving their program to Springboro!
Tentatively in Spring of 2019, Playhouse South will be located in a permanent home in Springboro to help fulfill the need for more performing arts in the area. They have been closely working with City Manager, Chris Pozzuto to better our relationship with the city.
With this being said, Rock of Ages, which performs in May, will be the last show in their current location. Their first and last show of the 2018-2019 season will be School House Rock Live! in Springboro at North Park. From then, until their new home is available, they will be taking the time to revamp their program. Their board and members agree that this is the perfect opportunity to properly prepare for the future of Playhouse South.
Why pause the Playhouse South program until you have moved into the new home in Springboro?
– Our members and board have decided that until our permanent space is ready, we would like to take this time to address everything our program has to offer. We’re looking at ways to grow, improve, and organize our entire program in a way that will better accommodate our new city and space.
Where will everything be stored while the move is taking place?
– Springboro has generously offered us a temporary space where we can store all our costumes, props, furniture, lumber, etc. Also, they have provided us with proper accommodations to prepare for School House Rock Live!
Are you announcing a 2018-2019 season?
– Rock of Ages, going up in May, will be our last show in our current space in Kettering. We will begin moving from this space as soon as the show closes. School House Rock Live!, performed at North Park in Springboro, will be our first and only 2018-2019 season show.
What does the new space look like?
– We cannot share many details about our new space. Nothing is set in stone as of yet, and many changes could still take place between now and the finalization of the project. We can confidently say that we have worked with the Springboro City Manager, Chris Pozzuto, to work from a “Wish List” of things that we would like our theater to include, and just about everything on that list will be worked into the space. Once everything is finalized, we will go public with more details.
