OUR NEW POWER2GIVE PROJECT IS LIVE WITH THE ARTS COUNCIL!
PLAY WITH US THIS SUMMER DURING OUR FESTIVAL OF PLAYS!
The Gilbert Theater is a vital part of the arts community in Fayetteville, and has been since it was founded in 1994 by Lynn Pryer.
This summer, Artistic Director Robyne Parrish and the Gilbert team welcome guest artists from NC to NYC to work with artists in the community to bring a week long festival of new plays.
The NEXT STAGE summer play festival will feature new work by playwrights who hail from both North Carolina and New York. In the same way, actors and directors from North Carolina will mix with guest artists from New York who will enjoy a ten day residency in Fayetteville. During this time, artists will produce six short plays as part of the summer playfest.
All of the artists will learn from one another, fusing their talents, to bring a spectacular week of work to Gilbert patrons and theatregoers in the area.
The NEXT STAGE or summer series is always produced on a shoe string budget. We need your help to make this summer event happen. In order to ensure that we bring the very best performance to the stage, we will need to build an amazing set, gather brilliant costumes, employ an awesome staff and crew and find the very best talent Fayetteville has to offer! This funding will allow us to offset costs in every area of production!
Support us in our goal to continue to create excellent work in our community.
