On Saturday, Nov. 9, Northern Star Theatre Company is hosting a 2020 Season Reveal Party which is free and open to the public. They will be serving refreshments starting at 6 p.m. with tours of the new theater. At 7 p.m. some of the theater’s talented volunteers will reveal NSTC’s exciting 2020 season through song, dance and readings from the upcoming 2020 Season shows.
“We are really excited about our upcoming season,” said director Amy Myers. “The shows are a mix of old and new but none have ever been done here at NSTC which is really exciting for us. We have been busy planning for this celebration and we are just really excited to give patrons a sneak peek of what they can look forward to in our upcoming season.”
The Season Reveal will also give the theater an opportunity to show off it’s new theater at 12 W. Marshall. Some of the exciting new amenities include:
• A spacious black box theater on the 1st floor
• A brand new sound system
• New LED lighting suspended 14 feet above the stage
• New seating platforms with an extra 12 inches of legroom
• a welcoming Gallery for displaying local artwork and serving refreshments with plenty of cozy seating
• Expanded bathrooms
• Handicapped accessibility and an elevator to other floors
• Newly rebuilt and paved parking lot on the south side of the building
“It came to our attention that people thought one of two things. Some thought that when our building at 104 S. Main St. was demolished, we ceased to exist. Others followed us to our new location at 12 W. Marshall St. where we provided some smaller productions upstairs while our main stage was being renovated.” said Myers “Some of those patrons were under the impression that we were going to continue in that upstairs space. While it was cozy and did serve its purpose in the interim, we have moved into our new theater space on the first floor that is much more inviting and more of a conventional theater space. Part of the goal of our Season Reveal event is to introduce people to this new space and remind people that we are still here and bringing great theater experiences to the Rice Lake area and supporting our fellow downtown businesses.”
