Sharon Playhouse plans active summer

New York State's Yorktown to re-open house

SHARON, Conn. — This northwestern Connecticut town’s on-again, off-again Playhouse, which was dark last summer and is for sale, will be re-lit this summer by producer Kevin J. Kearins and his Yorktown Theater Co., which is based in New York State’s nearby Westchester County. Kearins and his YTC have leased the theater for the summer and are advertising a five-musical season with “lavish costumes and scenery and full orchestra.”

During the many summers of its precarious life, Sharon’s Playhouse has housed both Equity and non-Equity companies. This year’s will be non-Equity with Equity guests in lead roles. What is being touted as the YTC’s “opening summer” in Sharon will consist of “Bye Bye Birdie,” July 1-12; “Nunsense,” July 16-19; “South Pacific,” July 23-Aug. 2; the Rodgers & Hammerstein revue “A Grand Night for Singing,” Aug. 6-9; and “Annie,” Aug. 13-23. The season will also include daytime performances of four children’s musicals.
