Evenings with Extraordinary Artists
March 29, 2017 at 6:30PM
The Evenings with Extraordinary Artists series will present Ed Herendeen, director and founder of the Contemporary Sheperdstown Theater Festival, Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30 pm. Herendeen will discuss the mission of his company, which is to produce and develop new American theater. Since its founding in 1991, the Theater Festival has produced 105 new plays – including 40 world premieres and nine commissions – and has gained a reputation as one of America’s most important producers of new work. Hosted on the campus of Shepherd University, CATF sells over 13,000 tickets to its four-week rotating repertory season of five new plays and attracts a national audience from 35 states to the region. Herendeen, along with members of his staff, will present a sneak “peek” of the 2017 season which will expand from five to six plays.
