Willing Suspension Armchair Theater will give monthly performances at the Library

FEBRUARY 2, 2015—SANTA CRUZ, CA—The Santa Cruz Public Library System, a network of 10 neighborhood library branches throughout Santa Cruz County, today announced a full season of performances, monthly February through December 2015, at the Scotts Valley and Downtown branches.  All performances are free.

The Santa Cruz Public Libraries is happy to expand its partnership with the Willing Suspension Armchair Theater to sponsor programs at the Library every month.  Willing Suspension Armchair Theater is a local reader’s theater troupe which offers an hour of humor, literature, poetry, and prose on a wide range of topics.  Local performers add life to the topics which are both entertaining and thoughtful.  There will be two performances of the month’s program; one at the Scotts Valley Branch and the other at the Downtown Branch.

“We’ve been offering quarterly performances until this year.  The performers are of such high quality and the directors’ ideas are so creative that we just had to expand so people could count on a regular theater experience,” commented Janis O’Driscoll, Manager of Programs & Partnerships for the Library.

The series begins this month with ANALYZING ABSURDITY REDUX, a great chance to laugh out loud.   Performances are scheduled for Thursday, February 12 at 7pm at the Scotts Valley Branch and Wednesday, February 18 at 7pm at the Downtown Branch.

Upcoming Programs include:  How Women Won the Vote (March), Campfires, Coyotes & Cowboys (April) and Wit, Wisdom & Wisecracks (May)
