TheatreWorld’s Creative Director, Mike Mathews, said that additional packages are being considered but no other decisions have been made at this time.
During the interview, Mathews mentioned that he would personally be directing shows during the summer at a very well-known theatrical camp in upstate New York and he was looking forward to the experience again. It was this directing experience last year in working with hundreds of children that, according to Mathews, inspired him to launch this summer special to enable dedicated theatre programs benefiting children to help dramatically increase their production values at a more affordable cost.
Mathews also told us that TheatreWorld will be announcing another summer month’s special in the next few weeks for clients who wish to purchase versions of TheatreWorld’s current Holiday and Christmas season backdrops or create custom backdrops for seasonal performances. TheatreWorld will begin to accept orders in June and close orders in mid-September under the soon-to-be announced Holiday Backdrop Special.
