Dear Friend,

As you know, we’ve been sending you these weekly notes in order to stay connected, to make sure you’re aware of what’s happening at PBD, and to share our thoughts as we look ahead. But from the very beginning, we told you we wanted to hear from you. We meant it – and still do.  

So now it’s your turn. We want to know what’s on your mind, and are inviting you to submit questions which Producing Artistic Director William Hayes and Managing Director Sue Ellen Beryl will answer in a video presentation on June 1. Do you want to follow up on anything we’ve talked about these past few weeks? Do you have questions about next season? Are you interested in behind-the-scenes stories? Are there things you always wanted to know about a favorite previous production? Just ask.

You can submit up to two questions and email them to marketing@palmbeachdramaworks.org by Tuesday, May 26 (or click the button below). Bill and Sue Ellen will answer as many questions as they can.
We hope you’ll be joining us tonight at 7pm for this week’s edition of Drama(in the)works. This evening’s reading is Catherine Bush’s Charlottesville , in which a Civil War reenactor takes a fantastical journey through American race relations. Next week, you can end the Memorial Day holiday with Mia McCollough’s Household Spirits . It’s a dark comedy about mental illness, alcoholism, and ghosts, in which a newly blended family spend a holiday in their fancy, but haunted, home along with a life-sized rag doll which acts as both a keeper and revealer of family secrets. 

Remember, tickets for these performances are free, but reservations are necessary. It’s best to check that you received your confirmation at least a half hour prior to the start of the reading, so that if you need any assistance, you’ll have time to contact the box office. Staff will be available via email: boxoffice@palmbeachdramaworks.org or phone: 561.514.4042, x2. If you get a recording, leave a message with your phone number and someone will get back to you quickly.   

As always, the play of the week is available on our YouTube page through Thursday of that same week. youtube.com/palmbeachdramaworks. 

The virtual Drama(in the)works initiative is made possible through special arrangement with Actors’ Equity Association. If you would like to make a donation to support this benefit performance series, you may do so online when you book your free ticket.
 
Finally, we will soon be announcing a virtual event that will take place on June 24. It’s something we’re very excited about, and we believe you will be, too. Save the date, and check this space in the coming weeks for all the details.

Stay safe.
