Summer Theatre in Salem


I have attended numerous productions at Salem State Theatre, and can attest to the excellence of their productions.  Here is all the information you need to know about this season's offerings, with thanks to Destination Salem:

Meet Greg (David Allen George) and Kate (Linda Burtt) whose empty-nester life has been turned upside down by stray pup Sylvia (Kate Amory – center).
Summer Theatre at Salem begins its season with the romantic comedy Sylvia. If you have ever owned a dog, loved a dog, or wished the dog would take a long weekend you don’t want to miss this show! Meet empty-nesters Greg (David Allen George) and Kate (Linda Burtt) whose well-planned shift to a new phase of life is upended by stray pup Sylvia (Kate Amory).  This unique look at love and relationships also features James Fallon and is directed by William Cunningham.
  • Sylvia by A.R. Gurney – July 6-8 and July 13-15. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm
  • Salem State University, Callan Studio Theatre, 352 Lafayette Street
  • Tickets: $25 general/$20 seniors and students. Pre-show dinner: $10 (advance reservation, by phone only)
  • Purchase tickets online at salemstatetickets.com or over the phone at 978.542.6290.

But wait - there's more!  Summer Theatre at Salem’s complete season includes:
Almost, Maine... On a cold, clear moonless night, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. John Cariani has created a romantic fable that explores the mysteries of the human heart. Directed by Brianne Beatrice and featuring: Angelo Athanasopolus, Brianne Beatrice, Bryan Collins, Sara Tode and Michael Zuccola
  • Almost, Maine by John Cariani 
  • July 20-21and July 27-29. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm/ Sundays at 2 pm.

Greater Tuna... What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye and Rev. Spikes have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small town morals and mores, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas' third smallest town. The long-running Off Broadway hit features Bryan Collins and David Allen George creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour de farce of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characterizations faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote.
  • Greater Tuna by Jason William, Joe Sears and  Ed Howard
