PLAN-B THEATRE ANNOUNCES 2021, 30th ANNIVERSARY, AUDIO-ONLY SUBSCRIPTION SERIES
A Message from Plan-B Theatre:
These past months we have weighed the reality of Covid-19. We have considered patron safety. We considered the safety of each artist we work with. We were informed that social distancing requirements dropped the capacity of our performance space to zero. We were overwhelmed, as many of you have been. But then we started thinking about our 25 years of experience creating radio drama in its various forms. And we realized that the best way to celebrate our 30th anniversary is to offer you the first-ever, audio-only, series in Utah history: a feast for the ears to safely stream at home or in the car.
