ACT’s ‘Bright Star’ to shine once more, for just one display, in the Bama Theatre

6 min read
The Actor's Charitable Theatre production of musical "Bright Star" will return for one free-admission performance, 4 p.m. Sunday July 25, at the Bama Theatre. Lisa Waldrop Shattuck (pictured) plays Alice Murphy. She'd fallen ill the weekend of the original June run, and was unable to perform, but has nursed her voice back to health.

If a musician is prepared to arrive back again and play a person or three much more tracks, concert events can glow with encores. Theatrical exhibits ordinarily are not able to.

Even a modest-sized musical may well require dozens of performers, musicians and crew, each with conflicting schedules, individuals who had labored the direct-up many weeks into their calendars, established apart long hrs not just for rehearsals, but for the typically-harrowing tech week, all in advance of the display even goes just before an audience. And which is not counting in the complicating expenditures of rehearsal and effectiveness spaces, rentals and utilities.

So it really is unusual a clearly show can occur back again just after its preliminary run, but which is occurring with one particular encore of the Actor’s Charitable Theatre’s musical “Vivid Star.” A totally free general performance will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday the Bama Theatre, 600 Greensboro Ave.
