This past Sunday, Mile Square Theatre closed its first production in its new home at Monroe Center for the Arts. The production, Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, was a great success and a huge step forward for this professional, non-profit regional theatre company. I want to thank our major supporters; Monroe Center for the Arts, Bijou Properties, Hudson County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation. The Monroe Theatrespace was filled to near capacity during this run. Much of our audience comes from Hudson County, but we also saw a significant number coming from other parts of New Jersey. We are excited to be working with Monroe Center in contributing to the cultural and artistic landscape of our city and in working to make Hoboken a cultural destination. In addition to the public performances, we presented six shows to our local schools. The young audiences loved the show, and all classes were provided with an in-depth study guide about the play. Part of our stated mission is to bring educational enrichment to our city’s young people, and we were happy to see such enthusiasm from the teachers and students who attended.
We continue our work with a production of David Sedaris’s The Santaland Diaries at Monroe Center in December, followed by an announcement of our 2009 season. Thanks to all of our supporters.
