CAT Theatre announces 2015-16 season
CAT Theatre is pleased to announce the 52nd season for Richmond’s Professional Theatre with a Community Heart. In addition to the previously announced co-production of Unexpected Tenderness with 5th Wall Theatre, for the 2015-2016 Season, CAT has selected the following plays:
by Noël Coward
October 24 through November 7, 2015
Divorced for five years, the glamorous, rich, and reckless Elyot and Amanda meet again at a French seaside resort, with their new spouses. Noël Coward’s timeless comedy is a witty masterpiece and considered one of the greatest comedies written for the stage.
by Israel Horovitz
January 23 through February 13, 2016
Co-Produced with 5th Wall Theatre
Unexpected Tenderness is the story of a dysfunctional Jewish family in Massachusetts. This gripping play tells the story of a father who, though a loving man, is at the same time violently paranoid and pathologically jealous. This production is a joint entry into the 2016 Acts of Faith Festival.
Moon Over Buffalo
by Ken Ludwig
March 19 through April 2, 2016
George and Charlotte Hay have had a not-so-illustrious stage career. Now in Buffalo touring in Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives, they may have one more shot at stardom as Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee. But, much like their careers, everything that can go wrong does in this hysterical comedy.
Don’t Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell
by V. Cate and Duke Ernsberger
May 21 through June 4, 2016
This hilarious show is based on actual events from the spring of 1939 when the movie public is anxiously awaiting the release of Gone with the Wind. Filming has already begun, but David O. Selznick realizes the script is a dud. He calls on screenwriter Ben Hecht to save the day but, unfortunately, Hecht never read the book. With only a week before filming resumes, Selznick locks himself in his office with Hecht and Director Victor Fleming to re-write the script.
CAT Theatre loves to welcome new artists and directors to become a part of the CAT family.
