WEBSTER—The Village Players Community Theater (VPCT) has announced they will be canceling this summer’s presentations of The Odd Couple. Originally scheduled for late July/early August of 2020, performances of The Odd Couple will be featured in the summer of 2021.
After weighing the options, the VPCT Board agreed that none of them were willing to risk the health and peace of mind of our actors, volunteers, and patrons.
Alternatively, the group is working on alternative methods of remotely keeping theater goers entertained.
“Our area has a treasure trove of talented individuals, and we would love to share them with you,” said Olivia Wells of the VPCT Board. “If you have acted in our shows, volunteered, or been a patron, we invite you to submit short videos showcasing your talent!”
The board is inviting individuals or groups to submit performance pieces to post on their Facebook page. Submissions should be videos of under five minutes and family appropriate. Not limited to acting, videos can feature singing, puppeteering, stand-up comedy, makeup artistry, costume creating, dancing, or anything else involving the performance arts. There are currently a couple of samples already posted for reference.
VPCT also encourages writers who would like to see their works performed to contact them for possible online production. The group will also assist video editing of your recorded works.
