Letter to the Editor: Change leads to good fortune at Andria Theatre
To the editor:
"Change is the only constant in life," according to the pre-Socratic Greek
philosopher, Heraclitus. This is very apparent when it comes to live theater.
By its very virtue of being live on stage, things can happen that didn't during
rehearsals or vice versa.
Andria Theatre had to make an unplanned change in its 2018-2019 season line-up
of shows. Due to an extended run of a professional touring company's production of
The Sound of Music, no school, amateur, or professional theaters can get the rights to
the show. Andria Theatre learned this has been the case for over a year.
Unfortunately, this was not posted on the Rodgers and Hammerstein website.
Out of some unfortunate circumstances can come good fortune. Such is the case
now. The rights are available to produce The Wizard of Oz, which will go up October
11-14 and October 18-21.
Executive director, Andria Theatre
