Carlisle Regional Performing Arts Center hosts grand reopening Saturday

  • 0

That changes Saturday with the theater’s grand reopening celebration under the theme, “While we were dark, you were our light.”

“It’s been incredible to see the support, sponsorship and outreach as we prepare for our grand reopening event and fall/winter 2021 season,” said Ashley Byerts, the theater’s artistic director.

The event begins with a reopening ceremony with the Downtown Carlisle Association that will also feature a musical performance by the theater’s resident live theater company, Players on High.

An open house follows from 12:15 to 3 p.m. Visitors will have the chance to see the cutouts from the theater’s recent fundraiser, Operation Fill the Theatre.

“Patrons will be able to check out all the upcoming event dates, purchase tickets, enter raffles, take a theater tour, watch the ‘Gem of Carlisle’ documentary and enjoy food and drink from local restaurants,” Byerts said.

Following the open house at 3:30 p.m., Cantate Carlisle will offer a free showing of their filmed spring concert, “Generations Coming Back Together Through Song.”

The fall and winter is expected to be busy for the theater, which has already announced a series of concerts including blues and gospel singer Mavis Staples and tribute bands like Foreigners Journey, Top of the World and Eaglemania.

Players on High will also launch its new season this fall with performances of “Clue: On Stage” and “A Christmas Carol.”

“Come out and see how we are growing and changing,” Byerts said. “A relationship with the community and patrons is a top priority as we bring new and diverse offerings to our stage.”
