“A Man for All Seasons” Showcase of Local Talent

This Article Brought To You By:

A Man For All Seasons Paris Community Theatre January 25 2013The Paris Community Theatre never ceases to amaze us! On January 25, 2013 we settled in for the PCT’s premier presentation of “A Man for All Seasons”. Before the curtains were open we had the chance to go behind the scenes and hang out with the cast & crew. It takes a lot of preparation for a show like this to happen. Director Ray Karrer held a green room meeting with the team and boosted the spirit with stories from his theatrical past in the 70s. Sponsored by First Federal Community Bank this 16th century adorned masterpiece had everyone on the edge of their seat. The cast performed brilliantly as they told the story of Thomas More. The 2 part play details More’s dilemma as he casts aside his principles in standing up to King Henry VIII when the King rejected the Roman Catholic Church to obtain a divorce so that he may re-marry. The audience absorbed every moment of on-stage magic. A Man for All Seasons will continue to draw a crowd as it will be presented 6 more times this season. January 26th, 27th, & 31st as well as February 1st, 2nd, & 3rd you can witness “A Man for All Seasons” displaying some of the most outstanding talent at our beloved Plaza.
