Where Did Theatre Go? Strickland talks with Gerds
Like most places, Wisconsin’s performing arts has been an uncertainty. Green Bay Community Theatre plans to open an off-stage season starting with a scenic design webinar. Kelli Strickland, executive and artistic director for the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts announced a new website launch, livestreamed events, and mini performances.
“I’m sure you all know, the ecosystem around live performing arts has been very unpredictable for the last few months due to COVID-19 concerns. The Weidner Center is among many venues that have paused live events at least through the end of 2020. So it remains unclear when we’ll be able to welcome our audiences back. We continue to work preparing for the future and adapting some of our offerings for the near term. The Weidner Center will be launching a new website that is dedicated to hosting livestreamed events and some digital bite-size performances with opportunities for the viewers to interact directly with the artists.”
