On April 19th Elm Street Cultural Arts Village will announce plans for 2020-2021 at their annual Season Reveal Party in a different way than normal – online. This free and virtual event will provide an exciting look ahead at the Main Stage Theatre Season, the Collage Educational Series, the Lantern Series, and new initiatives for Elm Street and the community. In addition, they will provide updates on the development of the 4-Acre property and all things to come in 2020 and 2021.
“Our Season Reveal is one of my favorite nights of the year,” says Christopher Brazelton, Executive Director of Elm Street. The in-person event was originally scheduled for March 28th but had to be postponed and transitioned to a digital format due to COVID-19 concerns surrounding mass gatherings. “While we can’t be together like seasons past, I wholeheartedly believe that connection transcends distance and community is hardly confined to a place. I think it’s also so important for our community to rally together right now and know that there are wonderful things to look forward to on the other side of this.”
Elm Street’s 2020-2021 Season of Characters offers a variety of arts experiences to enjoy, such as programming for the theatre with blockbuster musicals and new plays for both adults and the entire family. The Lantern Series, Elm Street’s outdoor concert series that showcases an eclectic lineup of musical artists from across the globe, will be expanding into its third season with an even more diverse set of musicians to expect – including two well-known headliners. Brazelton feels that this is vital to not only Elm Street, but to the entire community. “We at Elm Street have spent a lot of time over the last year looking at how an individual can impact a community. We’ve seen how this character can contribute to a community and we’re embracing that character. And because we’ve embraced that character, we’ve come up with our boldest season to date, which will be fun for everyone in the community as well as help pave the way for Elm Street’s future.”
The event is one night only on April 19th and will be streamed on Facebook as well as Elm Street’s website via YouTube. More information can be found at http://www.elmstreetarts.org. The virtual event is free and includes a first-hand opportunity to purchase subscriptions for the 2020-2021 Season of Character.
