Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park announces 2021-2022 season
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Playhouse in the Park says it will resume shows in October 2021 after a more than year-long closure due to COVID-19.
They also announced the eight shows that will comprise the 2021-22 season, including three world premieres.
“Our community showed immense generosity and support of the Playhouse throughout the pandemic,” Artistic Director Blake Robison said. “The new season showcases the range and diversity of the Playhouse, and we can’t wait to get back to producing a full schedule of live theatre for Cincinnati.”
Since COVID-19 health and safety guidelines for fall are still unknown, Playhouse officials say, subscriptions and tickets will go on sale later. Current subscribers will receive renewal statements in the summer.
