New Red: New Year, New Look

Happy 2019 to all of our friends, fans and followers! And welcome to our new website!

As you can see, we’ve tightened the website up a bit. Everything is under the banner of The New Renaissance Theatre Company, which means you’ll come to for all things NRTC and our Unrehearsed Shakespeare Project. You’ll see us more active on social media. We are looking to put ourselves out there in a big way, and your support will be a big part of that. So please be sure to share, like, follow etc. NRTC on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Speaking of putting ourselves out there, we are planning the dates and locations for our 6thannual Unrehearsed Shakespeare Project summer tour: The Two Gentlemen of Veronaand The Tragedie of Othello, The Moore of Venice. Auditions will be happening soon – so all of you actors keep an eye out for those. We will also be looking for volunteers to help out, so if you feel the pull to participate, let us know. We will let you know about developments as they arise 

For the first time, USP will be heading out to Greensburg! This is our first foray into Westmoreland County, so tell your friends and let’s make that a great debut performance. Also, we’ve shown North Park a lot of love the last five years, we thought we’d spread some in South Park as well. That gives people south of downtown 3 opportunities to see USP without having to cross a bridge or drive through a tunnel! We expect to see you all out for those performances.

There’s a bit of an Italian flavor to our 6thAnnual Unrehearsed Shakespeare Project Tour: The Two Gentlemen of Veronaand The Tragedie of Othello, the Moore of Venice. We’ll be offering hot blood and hot love every weekend in July – and we hope the weather won’t be quite as hot as it was last summer. But that’s the joy of a summer tour: bring a blanket, a picnic and let us entertain you!

Personally, I’m looking forward to the fun and the challenges of this upcoming season. I get the chance to work with some great people and partner with wonderful organizations and I have the privilege of sharing it with a wonderful audience. So don’t miss out. Follow us online and in real life. We look forward to seeing you at the show!

Keep an eye out for new things from New Ren in 2019! I’ll be keeping my eye out for you!
