Theatre fans will get a chance to meet the directors for Community Players of Streator’s 2017 season and learn more about how to get involved in the group’s 60th anniversary season.

Community Players of Streator – best known as Engle Lane –will host a Meet the Directors Night at 7 pm. Friday, February 3, in the William C. Schiffbauer Center for the Performing Arts at Engle Lane Theatre, 1012 Columbus Road, Streator.

The directors of each production will be introduced and will provide an overview of their show, including ways for interested individuals to become involved both on and off stage.

Following the presentation of the directors, those attending will have the opportunity to tour the theatre and learn more about getting involved in the season.

“You don’t have to have any experience at all to be involved at Engle Lane,” said Bill Jankowski, Engle Lane’s 2017 production chairman and board of director member. “Everyone has to start somewhere, and it out hope that this event can help make taking that first step a little less intimidating for those just starting out.”

Season tickets are on sale for the 2017 60th anniversary season, starting at $60 for all six shows. Productions will include: “Animal Crackers,” a musical comedy directed by Dan McKenzie May 14-20; “Steel Magnolias,” a comedy/drama directed by Joseph Ennenbach June 11-17; Monty Python’s Spam-A-Lot,” a musical comedy directed by Doug Bartelt July 9-15; “The Lion King Jr. Experience,” a youth musical experience directed by Darcy Mollo August 6-12; “I Hate Hamlet,” a  comedy directed by Larry Kelsey September 10-16; and “Sister Act,” a musical directed by Nicholas Frig October 15-21.
