Magic Alive!
Becoming a 2009-2010 Subscriber will save you some money and really help us meet our costs. As you know, many of our expenses (paying artists during the rehearsal period, buying materials for sets and costumes, paying royalties and buying scripts, etc.) all come before the box office opens and thus before funds begin to come in to cover these costs. Your purchase of a Subscription is a critical resource for covering these expenses and thus the reason we offer you a 25% discount off the nonmember price.

This year we have our second performance space with which to work--The Freight Depot. So, TCHH has doubled the number of productions for which the reduced subscriber price applies. We are still just asking you to pay ahead for the three Main Stage shows in The Hall, namely, Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, Arthur Miller’s Tony Award-winning All My Sons, and a riotous farce by Michael Hollinger, Incorruptible. However, now in addition to that immediate discount, once you have purchased your Subscription, you may also purchase your tickets for the three Freight Depot productions (The Sweet Storm by Scott Hudson, Hadrian VII by Peter Luke and Another Antigone by A.R. Gurney) at the Subscriber price of just $18 when you call to reserve. We are so proud of this amazing company that Kevin McGuire built during his ten years with Hubbard Hall Projects. It is a testimony to the spirit and standards he created that members of the company have stepped forward with enthusiasm to build this exciting 2009-2010 season. We are impressed by what Kevin built! With his decision to move on to new challenges the Theatre Company at Hubbard Hall has had to take stock and decide whether to keep going or to take a break and wait for another passionate person to come along to build a new Theater Company. In the process of taking stock we realized that perhaps Kevin’s most impressive legacy is that he attracted a whole lot of passionate and committed people who are adamant about going forward with his vision and who know that Kevin will be back frequently—he just built too special a Company for him to leave completely! Kevin kicked off the 09-10 season by directing the touring outdoor production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Now, while Kevin negotiates with a producer about a new musical that they might have TCHH “bring along” in 2010-2011, members of The Company have put together a 2009-2010 season of seven plays totaling over 65 performances that continue the TCHH mission to be a mentoring company mixing seasoned professionals with novices and expecting both to learn from each other. This season also keeps its eye on performing “classics” (in part because other area theaters seldom do and in part because they represent the very best story telling created through the ages) but also has added some new works we think are a perfect fit for our Company.

The TCHH tradition of “Hands” takes place before every performance. It’s that loud yell you hear while waiting to enter The Hall! The show can’t and won’t go on until we’ve all joined hands, shared some inspiration and motivation and let it all out with a growing roar culminating in hands to the air!

Keep the tradition alive - keep the magic happening!

Hands everybody - yeeeea


Open the doors - it’s time to make magic!

Subscription Season!
Become a Season Subscriber and Save!
The Theatre Company at Hubbard Hall has earned the envy of other theater companies by being able to do so much with such small budgets. It is able to do so in part because of the high level of volunteerism and in part by finding simple, creative solutions to keeping its focus on “telling the story”. This combination produces a high quality product at an incredibly low price. Because most of our production expenses are incurred before a show opens, your subscriptions (which are simply prepayment for tickets) help us cover these expenses in a timely manner. However, even with full houses, ticket sales do not cover all of the expenses. To make up the difference Hubbard Hall seeks grants, corporate partners and individual contributors. Without these patrons helping to cover the costs of maintaining the facility, paying for utilities, insuring, and providing administrative services, TCHH could not operate. When you become a Theatre Subscriber, in addition to knowing that you are providing The Company with invaluable support when it is most needed,
