A Christmas Carol Cancellation
Sadly, Paradox Players has found it necessary to cancel our scheduled
performance of A Christmas Carol for 2018. The First UU Church renovations have experienced several delays, resulting in a postponement of the completion of the Sanctuary. In addition, we have learned that to complete the electrical updating, the entire church will need to be closed for two weeks. Due to the recent heavy rains, that closure has now been moved to the weeks of November 26-December 7, right in the middle of our planned run. Given the uncertainties of what might still occur to delay the renovation project, we have decided that we must cancel this production.
We apologize for getting your hopes up about the imminent return of Paradox Players, but we apparently were overoptimistic about how quickly First UU’s renovations would proceed. We are hard at work planning our 2019 Season, and intend to perform A Christmas Carol in late fall of 2019. Our first production in 2019 will be The Mountaintop, by American playwright Katori Hall. It is a fictional depiction of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s last night on earth set entirely in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel on the eve of his assassination in 1968. long hiatus is coming to an end!
But while we were on hiatus, the Paradox Players leadership team was busy. We have a new Interim Artistic Director, Laura King, and are exploring exciting possibilities for expanding our mission into the Austin theater community, while maintaining our focus on main stage play productions. And of course, Readers’ Theater kept meeting on second Mondays!
We thank our audience for their continued support.
