The pandemic has drastically impacted our arts productions in Fort Worth and Casa Manana is no exception. Their currently schedule Broadway and Children’s Theatre productions have been postponed until August of 2021.
Mainstage productions originally had a goal of returning to the stage this February (having been delayed since the previous March) but given the spikes in COVID cases, Casa has decided it best to remain safe and prepare to return with a bang in late summer.
Shows to look forward to from August through 2022 involve:
|Apprentice Program’s Bonnie and Clyde||August 6-8||Broadway|
|Grace Goes to Washington||October 9-24||*child friendly|
|Choir of Man||November 9-14||Broadway|
|Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer||November 20-December 23||*child friendly|
|Matilda the Musical||February 4-13, 2022||Broadway|
|Steel Magnolias||February 26-March 6, 2022||Broadway|
|Shrek the Musical||March 19-April 3, 2022||*child friendly|
|Disney’s Descendants The Musical||April 23-May 8, 2022||*child friendly|
|Disney’s Newsies||June 4-12, 2022||Broadway|
|Smokey Joe’s Cafe||July 23-31, 2022||Broadway|

What my family has enjoyed most about Casa Manana amidst this crazy season of life, is how they have used Reid Cabaret Theatre to their advantage. During these smaller performances, the audience sits on the stage at tables in groups of 2, 3, or 4. The tables are safely spread out and table service is available. The cast members of these performances are limited to 4-5 and are carefully spread out amongst the stage for safety. Health screenings prior to the production are in place for both cast members and audience participants are in place and the intermission has been omitted to eliminate any potential exposures.
My husband and I have personally joined in on the Frank Sinatra show and my entire family lit up like a Christmas tree at their Christmas Sing Along. Stay tuned to Casa’s website to see what productions will safely continue throughout this Spring and Summer!
The next upcoming Reid Cabaret Theatre Production is Bennett & Babs: The Music of Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand from February 9-14. Click here to reserve your tickets/table.
