Last chance to donate to the Resinski Green Room!

In conjunction with Bonnie Resinski’s revival of “Silhouettes” in September 2015, Cresson Lake Playhouse is wrapping up a special appeal fund drive to renovate the Green Room at the barn.  All proceeds from “Silhouettes” and from the special appeal campaign will support the renovation project.  Work is now underway and when the project is complete, we will dedicate the “Resinski Green Room” to honor Kenny and Bonnie Resinski for their role in the early success of Cresson Lake Playhouse.

Donations to the Resinski Green Room project are still being accepted and can be made here.

Over the years, CLP has made improvements to the Green Room and Dressing Rooms in the lower level of the barn theatre.  Continue reading

Special Appeal Campaign for Lights & Sound

10978663_937280192957546_1404223077508698022_nWe need your help to raise $10,000 to match a grant from Penelec!  We’re more than halfway to our goal.  Please read the details below and donate.

Sound System

As you probably know, we’ve been having issues with sound at the barn for years. The source of our sound issues has been the microphones which are not only old but also worn out. Last season, we were fortunate enough to borrow some microphones which made a big difference. Unfortunately, that was a one-time-only deal. To fix the problem permanently, we need to purchase new ones. Twenty quality microphones along with their matching transmitters and receivers will cost about $500 each and will provide our audiences with a better experience for years to come.

Lighting System

Many of our lighting instruments are 30+ years old and are in need of replacement for both technical and safety reasons. New LED lighting instruments ($500 each) will be safer and much more energy efficient, reducing our electric bill by as much as $2,500/year. In addition, they will reduce our A/C usage in the summer because LED’s run much cooler than older lighting units. Continue reading

Zombie Prom

Status

Zombie Prom webOctober 6-15  | This girl loves ghoul, rock and roll, Off Broadway musical is set in the atomic 1950’s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal. Pretty senior Toffee has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and Jonny charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee’s heart. He still wants to graduate, but most of all he wants to take Toffee to the prom. The principal orders Jonny to drop dead while a scandal reporter seizes on him as the freak du jour. History comes to the rescue while a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of hits from the 50’s keeps the action rocking across the stage.
