The Keegan Theatre is pleased to announce its 2013-2014 season, which has been shortened to prepare for major renovations to their Church Street space. Later this month, Keegan will sign the papers and become the official owners of the Church Street Theater, an astounding milestone for this small company. Additionally, major renovations are planned to begin in the spring of 2014, at which time the theater will go dark for 6 months to allow for the build out of a new basement level that will include rehearsal and community space, storage for props and costumes, a modern green room, expanded dressing rooms and restrooms, and office and laundry facilities.

“These are incredible times at Keegan,” says founder and Producing Artistic irector Mark A. Rhea. “To own our own space, to finally see ground broken on the renovations – it’s still hard to grasp that it’s all finally happening. We would not be here without the incredible, inspiring support of our audiences and donors. I’m in awe of the generosity and vision I have witnessed over the past two years of fundraising.”

Keegan has an ambitious season planned, with seven shows scheduled over its truncated 9-month season. “We may have to cancel or add shows, depending on how the permitting process goes for the renovations – hopefully, our audiences will celebrate with us and understand that these are terrific problems to have,” Rhea continues. “And in the meantime, we’ve got a great lineup in store next season. There’s something for everyone in the 2013-2014 season — and we promise to deliver what our audiences have come to expect at Keegan: honest, intimate, quality productions of a range of wonderful plays.”

On June 18, subscription packages will go on sale for the 2013-14 season – due to the possibility of beginning renovations early, Keegan will offer subscription packages with flexible use of tickets, allowing subscribers to bundle tickets on the shows of their choice.
