IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE GALA OPENING THIS FRIDAY!

Don’t miss this Holiday Classic

Get your tickets NOW It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play runs for just SIX performances over TWO weekends.

This is the timeless tale of George Bailey, an all-American good guy who finds himself in dire straits one Christmas Eve, and the Guardian Angel who shows him just how his small-town home, and the people he loves, would have turned out without him.

Dean Alexander returns to the role he made his own eight years ago when we last staged this holiday show and he’s joined a by a glittering array of your local favorite actors!

Join us in Studio A at WSPH Sherman (right here at the Sherman Playhouse, of course!) as we take you back to a Christmas Eve broadcast of the late 1940’s.  Will George make it through his trials and tribulations?  Will Uncle Billy find that $8,000?  Will Clarence get his wings?  Will the actors make it to the mic on cue?  Will our Foley Artist really manage to sound like a taxi, breaking window, steam train, cash register and more while still maintaining their sanity?  You’ll just have to come along to find out!

It’s the Holiday treat for your listening (and viewing) pleasure!

Vote NOW for your favorites at the Sherman Playhouse

Created:

 Broadwayworld.com has opened voting for their 2022 Connecticut Theatre Awards   

And we have loads of nominations for shows, actors, crew and creatives – and also for Favorite Local Theatre.  It’s been a great year at the Playhouse with stunning successes that we’re so proud of.  We’re doubly proud of the nominations that have been earned too!

See the list below, and go to https://www.broadwayworld.com/connecticut/article/Voting-Now-Open-For-The-2022-BroadwayWorld-Connecticut-Awards-20221111 to place your vote.
You will probably find it easiest to do this from your computer, or if going via a mobile device then download the BWW app.  Just voting via link above on a phone can be a little tricky – lots of ads and confusing buttons.
PLEASE NOTE:  You’ll be asked for your email address, but at no time should you be asked to download anything or enter credit card details.  If you encounter either of these it means you’ve clicked a pesky button.
Also be aware that the first block of nominations are for Professional CT theatres, then come non-professional, like us.

Here are our nominations:

  • Best PlayStepping Out
  • Best EnsembleStepping Out
  • Best Supporting Performer In A MusicalErin Shaughnessy (Sue Snell), Carrie
  • Best Direction Of A MusicalBradford Blake, Carrie
  • Best Scenic Design Of A Play Or MusicalBrad Blake & Al Chiappetta, Carrie

Pride and Prejudice Postponed

Created:

It’s with regret that we have to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to mount our production of Pride and Prejudice as planned.  The show will be postponed to the 2023 season, at a date yet to be determined.

We would like to thank Director Michael Wright, our cast and production team for their efforts thus far.

The Board is considering alternatives to fill our end of season slot.
