Joining forces for a brand new entertainment experience
In contemplating our tenth anniversary year in 2020, we anticipated that January would be dark. We had no reason to believe we would be shuttered since March 2020! When it became apparent that productions of any kind would be hopeless due to the wide spread outbreak of Covid-19, Rich, Susan, Cheryl, Jay and Randy sat down to discuss the best way to utilize our enforced respite.
Enter the Good Earth Market
Located about a mile west of us on Route 26, the Good Earth Market, which began operations at about the same time as we did, has, for the past decade, been not only one of my favorite food purveyors in the world (Sue Bloch casts a concurring vote on that), but also one of the best restaurants on the shore. In discussions with Susan Ryan, the founder and proprietor, we quickly discovered a format for what we both believe will be an extraordinary joint effort:
On behalf of both of our enterprises and our
employees, we are delighted to announce:
Dickens Parlour Theatre
WhenIf all goes well, we will present a grand opening sometime in Spring 2022.
WhereThe new theatre, complete with spacious seating, state-of-the-art lighting, heating and ventilation systems, will be located immediately next to the existing Good Earth Market on its campus. Parking will be plentiful and easily accessible. The theatre’s own open-air patio will adjoin the Market’s veranda, making way for presentations under the stars.
OfferingsThe new Dickens Parlour Theatre will be larger, enabling us to present a wider range of entertainment offerings that will include not only the world-class magicians, but also choral and musical offerings, lectures such as the “Inside Story” program sponsored by the Coastal Point. And, because of the unique cabaret setting we are planning, the facility will be available for functions such as weddings, birthday parties, meetings, and informal gatherings.
Stay tuned on dates from us!
that we say to you, our friends and supporters:
See you at the new Dickens Parlour Theatre.
