Open Stage, a theatre company at 25 N. Court St. in Harrisburg, is thrilled to announce the theater’s re-opening in late May with a series of concerts, beginning with a Judy Garland celebration dubbed “Over the Rainbow: The Songs of Judy Garland,” running May 28-June 25. This will be followed by a July concert featuring the works of Carole King, along with shows featuring solo artists from the Harrisburg area. The company hasn’t had a public performance for more than a year.
“It’s obviously been a difficult year for theatre,” said Stuart Landon, the producing artistic director at Open Stage. “Last March we asked ourselves ‘what is theatre without people sitting in the audience?’ and we - the five full-time staff members - took some time away from the space. But through a very dark time, we were able to find some light.”
