This week’s Season Announcement Wednesday…err Thursday comes from a company up in the east Bay Area. Any theatre company that announces its season does so with so many different concerns in mind. Audience likes, casting pool, cost of production, theatre space, etc. This week’s company always seems to pick a show that not only works within their talented resources, but always manages to dazzle audiences and critics alike. I bring to you the 2012-2013 season of Center Repertory Theatre in Walnut Creek, CA!

Description: Center Rep is a professional theatre company that utilizes Union and Non-union performers for their productions. I have had the pleasure of seeing their production of Dracula in their 2010-2011 season, and it was magnificent. Center Rep has won numerous BATCC awards, as well as countless Shellie Awards. They have housed several big named bay area actors/actresses, and have produced successful, professional quality productions for years. Upcoming in this current season is their final show, which is Xanadu. Go see Xanadu to get a taste of what this company is all about. Then go buy season tickets and see their next season!
