Civic Theatre is returning to live, in-person events with “Light on the Horizon.” This original show will highlight what Civic is offering in its 2021-22 Season and marks the return to live performances for the first time in more than a year.
“Light on the Horizon” will be performed in The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, with eight live performances between April 30 and May 15. The show will include performers from past and upcoming Civic productions. Many of the performers are from Civic’s cast of “The Color Purple,” which was originally scheduled for this spring. Because of capacity limitations, “The Color Purple” has been postponed until October.
Civic will present “A Few Good Men” in the Studio Theater, which will run from May 12 to May 22. “A Few Good Men” was postponed in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the suspension of campus-wide activities. Civic welcomes back previous cast members as well as some new performers for the production.
A Broadway hit, “A Few Good Men” tells the story of the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay.
Civic is taking every possible precaution to welcome back patrons. Both theaters can be seated at 25 percent capacity while observing social distancing. Every attendee also will be required to wear a mask in the building at all times. Civic will reevaluate the protocols as needed. Additionally, each of the productions will include two livestreamed performances and an on-demand option to view at home.
