By the Sea Productions
BTSP is excited to begin our 4th year as Morro Bay’s live theater company! Our shared venue at the Erickson Parrish Hall at St. Peter’s By the Sea Episcopal Church remains a wonderful partnership for us. Even more wonderful is the consistent enthusiastic support from the Morro Bay community. Our audience attendance continues to increase and many of our shows are ‘sold out’ houses!
Our 2020 season offers a varied selection of shows, beginning with The Odd Couple, directed by Lisa Woske, Neil Simon’s beloved comedy about misfit roommates Oscar and Felix. Next is 12 Angry Jurors, the classic courtroom drama, updated to include women, directed by Kelli M. Poward. Our summer show is a new play, but a familiar mystery, Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, directed by Sandy Bosworth. Our fall show is The Psychic, a comedy/thriller directed by Sheridan Cole. Our season closes with Suite Surrender, a comedy/farce directed by Kelli M. Poward, about two dueling divas on a WWII fundraising tour.
Our Readers Theatre productions this year start with a new play, Church and State, a drama about differing views on gun control, directed by Janice Peters. Second is the delightful book lovers play, 84 Charing Cross Road, directed by Anita Schwaber. Third is the Arthur Miller classic, The Crucible, directed by Chrys Barnes.
We’ve done our best to provide something for everyone, and we look forward to greeting many new audience members as well as our loyal ‘fans.’ We are already looking at plays for our 2021 season, so please let us know of any shows you’d like to see.
By the Sea Productions is a non-profit 501c-3 organization, so we hope you will consider joining our generous group of ‘Angels’ by becoming a sponsor or donor to help us meet our ongoing operational costs. Our “wish list” and sponsorship rewards are listed below, so please take a look.
We are very grateful for your attendance and support. With your continued help, we look forward to presenting many more quality shows for your enjoyment.
