STRAY KATS IS BACK
For those of you who have supported us since we opened in 2010, our deepest gratitude. You were there as we struggled through the saddest year we could ever have imagined, opening with the premiere of Fred Stroppel's Small World just weeks after the event that would change our town forever. During the months that followed the Newtown tragedy, we soldiered on, presenting a critically acclaimed production of Richard Dresser's Rounding Third, and the daring Seven, written by seven award-winning female playwrights based on interviews with seven
activists for women's rights worldwide. 
And then we stopped. Planning a new season in the aftermath proved too daunting a task, so we took some time off and thought about our mission and our place in the community.

Join us this September as we launch a new phase in our development: Site Specific theatre. Our first show will be Doubt by John Patrick Shanley, appropriately staged in the Meeting House right at the Flagpole, as part of the Newtown Arts Festival. Please join us!

Tickets will go on sale by August 1st on this website and will also be available at Queen Street Gifts and Treats.
 

Stray Kats Theatre Company and Third Eye Productions of New York City are joining forces to present John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt" in a short run that will coincide with the Newtown Arts Festival.

Set in 1964, in the midst of an ever widening scandal in the Catholic church, "Doubt" is in keeping with SKTC's mission to bring you thought-provoking entertainment that sheds light on the human condition. As Shanley writes, "Doubt requires more courage than conviction does... because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite..."

The cast: Patrick Kearney*, Kate Katcher*, Molly Garbe and Denise Johnson.

Performance dates: September 11, 12, 13 and 18, 19 and 20 at 7 p.m.

Tickets will be available on our website or in person at Queen Street Gifts and Treats, 5 Queen Street, Newtown after August 1st. 

  Good news! The SKTC production of Fred Stroppel's "Small World" directed by Kate Katcher is playing this July at the White Heron Theatre in Nantucket! It will feature original cast-members Scott Bryce and Robert Resnikoff reprising their roles of Walt Disney. "Small World" recieved rave reviews in Newtown including this from Joanne Rochman: "...It moves from a passion-induced exposition to comedic action and a terrific climax. The resolution not only suggests that true greatness lives on into eternity, but that art and commerce can and do come together."

Congratulations and good luck to Fred et al.
