After another great review (This one from the Lansing State Journal), Williamston Theatre is happy to announce WE’RE EXTENDING THE RUN OF HATE MAIL!
Instead of closing the show on the announced March 30th date, we will add two weeks of performances, and run the show through April 13th!
This is the first show we’ve extended at WT, and we’re really excited about it, for a couple of reasons:
1) Extending a show means we’re doing even MORE to fulfill our mission of providing quality professional theatre at affordable prices.
2) It’s a sign of success!
3) We’re able to provide 2 more weeks of work to a handful of deserving artists, all of whom are fantastic.
One of the other reasons I personally am excited about this show extending is that the actors, Aral and Hallie, get a chance to continue their wonderful work onstage in front of appreciative folks. This show was a bit of an experiment for us – the style of the play had the risk of turning people off. Having the cast reading letters and notes back and forth, the fact that they don’t never look at each other, but still react to the letters they’re getting from each other – it’s an unusual format of play and a different production style. We were worried this would make people shy about seeing it. Fortunately, the opposite has happened, and we’ve gotten comments like “This was so refreshing!” and “It’s different than anything I’ve ever seen! It’s really fun!”, which have been very nice to hear. It’s great to have people enjoy taking a risk to see something they’re not sure about, and come away happy with the results!
So, if you’ve not yet seen the show, call the box office at 517-655-SHOW and get your tickets!
Come join us for a wonderful evening of theatre – or, as the critics are saying:
“Laugh-Out-Loud Social Satire”
