For the second year in a row, MCT presents Summer Pop-up Theatre, coming to a park or historical location near you.
In the summer of 2021, MCT wanted to get back to live, in person theater. The safest way to do that, at that time, was to go outside. It was obvious that our audience was ready to see a show in person again! One performance in Shryock Park Amphitheatre turned into performances across Crawford County and even to Edinboro. What started as a necessity has grown into what we hope will be an annual tradition.
Starting the 2022 Summer Pop-up Theatre season is a very special project. MCT will be performing Inherit the Wind in Old Courtroom 1 of the Crawford County Courthouse July 9 and 10. If you see the July 10 performance, it is 97 years to the day after The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes trial began. Bringing this trial’s famous recreation to an actual courtroom at the exact right time of year is an opportunity that MCT could not pass up, and we hope our audience feels the same way.
MCT continues its partnership with Goodell Gardens and Homestead on July 15 with a fun play, The Last Comedienne. Three female comics vie for the $100,000 prize in the National Comedienne Joke-Off. Between their five minute sets, they share their funny, cynical and touching life stories and what the prize means to them.
We are bringing The Last Comedienne to Cochranton as well on July 23. Join us in the more intimate setting of Lions Community Park for all the laughs. These performances are the perfect opportunity to support your local community organizations and MCT at one fun event.
For both the Edinboro and Cochranton shows, please bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit on.
Dreaming of your own Mrs. Maisel moment? We invite the audience to share their comedic talents by performing their own set as part of the show. Email the director, Sylvia, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 814-333-1773 to reserve your spot at either location!
