Bucks Performing Arts Center curtain will rise again in 2021

Posted

The 2020 season of the Bucks County Center for the Performing Arts has been postponed and rescheduled.

Productions of Frank McCourt’s “The Irish and How They Got That Way,” “Cooking with the Calamari Sisters” and one the most popular Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s shows, “South Pacific,” will now perform in June, July and August 2021.

I personally called 500 patrons that had booked this season and I am happy to say that 80% of the people have chosen to use their tickets for next season and we appreciate our audience support.

We are located at Delaware Valley University in the New Life Sciences building, a wonderful site, a Broadway-quality venue that has been utilized for our productions the last three years.

However, many performing companies in the area need space and it is always hard to secure dates. What we really need is our own space; to build a theater in Doylestown we need $10 million dollars. That person with $10 million is out there; we just need to find that person.

We created such excitement by personally calling every ticket holder, the excitement is exemplified by a ticket holder I called. The conversation went something like this:

The ticket holder said, “I am 92 years old and I would prefer a refund because I don’t know if I will be here next year,” and I answered, “Don’t worry; if you die I will give you a refund. In the excitement and the love of our theater she said, “OK … I will reschedule my ticket.”
