Stagehouse Theatre Spring Season Opens Feb. 26 at Grossmont College
EL CAJON – The award-winning Stagehouse Theatre at Grossmont College is back this Spring with a trio of performances that will include Pride & Prejudice, All in the Timing, and As You Like It.
As You Like It, a pastoral comedy written by William Shakespeare and directed by Benjamin Cole, is the latest addition to the Stagehouse Theatre’s annual Inside the Actor’s Process that tours more than a dozen San Diego County high schools as part of the Grossmont College Theatre Arts Department’s outreach program. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, however, high school students – and the general public – will be treated to four free performances on February 26 and March 5 at the Stagehouse Theatre at 2 and 7:30 p.m. both days. Reservations are required by calling the Stagehouse Theatre Box Office at (619) 644-7234.
Pride & Prejudice, directed by Shana Wride and written by Kate Hamill, is based on the novel by Jane Austen. It comes to the Stagehouse Theatre with 7:30 p.m. performances on March 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, and 26; and at 2 p.m. on March 19 and 26.
All in the Timing – six, one-act plays by David Ives and directed by Geno Carr, comes to the Stagehouse Theatre with 7:30 p.m. performances on May 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, and 28, and 2 p.m. matinees on May 21 and 28.
COVID-19 restrictions will remain in place for all performances, meaning guests must wear masks and be fully vaccinated. Proof of fully vaccination will be requested at the door prior to each performance. Tickets are being sold (cash and check) only in advance and can be ordered only by calling (619) 644-7234. No tickets are being sold at the door.
General admission seats are $16, tickets for seniors and military personnel are $12, and tickets for students and educators are $10. In addition, a mini-season ticket package including all three performances is just $25 per person.
