FRENCH CREEK THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
2016-2017 Season: September 2016 - August, 2017
Performances: Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays
Cost: $10 - $18 per ticket
Location: French Creek Nature & Arts Center
Theatre has the privilege and the power to reach us exactly where we are in our lives. In hope or hardship, in revelry or wretchedness, our own experiences are reflected in the stories onstage. Seeing the semblance of ourselves in other characters can help us make sense of life’s complexities, finding what we stand for; or sometimes we’re simply reminded what a wonder life is, giving us cause to celebrate. French Creek’s 2016-2017 Season features the fun and the fearless, the playful and the provocative, offering audiences an extraordinary breadth of theatrical performance to enjoy and connect with. Keeping that in mind, we present to you our 2016-2017 French Creek Theatre season. See you at the theatre!
Purchase tickets to any of this season's shows by visiting the French Creek Theatre website or by calling 440-949-5200.
