The Post Playhouse at Fort Robinson State Park near Crawford will begin what is being billed as its biggest season yet Friday, June 5.
The popular attraction will present five shows on a repertory schedule through Aug. 9. Opening the first three Fridays in June, in order, are “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” “Grease,” and “Cinderella.” The remaining two, “All Shook Up” and “A Man of No Importance” will open the first two Fridays in July.
Throughout the summer, 73 shows will be offered and the playhouse has ramped up its offerings of matinees. The second weekend in July the Playhouse will begin featuring double showings on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, in addition to three shows on Saturdays, followed by a matinee on Sundays.
Also new this year, one popular pricing option has been expanded. People can buy five-show “subscriptions,” in addition to the previous four-show option, at considerable savings over what it would cost to buy tickets individually.
The playhouse is popular to both park visitors and residents of the region and buying tickets in advance is highly encouraged in order to get good seats. This year, the playhouse features a cast of professional actors from a dozen states coast to coast.
