WCCT to hold planning meeting

Socially-distanced gathering to look at a return to the stage

— Daily Freeman-Journal file photo Even though the stage has been dark since last March, members of Webster City Community Theatre presented Pop-up Outdoor Theater productions in August and September at Trinity Lutheran Church's north lawn. Pictured above at the first outdoor event are Mark Dohms, Dale Arends, Trese Arends and Abby Sharp. WCCT members plan to meet Sunday night to prepare for future productions, possibly beginning in the fall.

Webster City Community Theatre invites its members and others interested to its annual planning meeting on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 6 p.m. The hybrid meeting will be held in the auditorium to allow for social distancing. Masks are required. Food and beverages are not allowed in the auditorium. Those who would rather join virtually are asked to contact Loween Getter at 515-297-0846 or loweengetter@wmtel.net for the Zoom link. The WCCT board will meet at 5:30 pm.

The group will discuss plans for this summer and propose productions for the 2021-2022 season hopefully starting this fall. Bring your ideas for comedies, dramas, mysteries, holiday shows, youth productions, and musicals you would like to direct, audition for, work behind the scenes on, and enjoy from the audience.

The stage at WCCT has been dark since March 17 when the pandemic interrupted the production of “The Young, the Beautiful and the Murdered.” Also cancelled were the summer musical, “The Sound of Music” and the children’s theatre workshop. Two successful “Pop Up Outdoor Theatre” presentations were held in August and September on the lawn at Trinity Lutheran Church.

In the meantime, small groups of volunteers worked safely to organize the wardrobe and props. The facility remains closed to the public for rental.
