Circle X Theatre Company, which won three Ovation Awards and was nominated for seven L.A. Weekly Awards in 1998, has announced its 1999-2000 season.
The season will kick off Apr. 8 with the world premiere of In the Sherman Family Wax Museum by Alexander Woo. Produced on a grant from the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, this "completely modular production" will run for one week only at the Heliotrope Theatre and will be available for subsequent bookings at special events indefinitely.
The May-June production will be the Los Angeles premiere of Anthony Clarvoe's Show and Tell. The playwright has added scenes never before performed.
In July-August Circle X will mount the world premiere of Suzanne Maynard's Beatrice, which is loosely based on the classic play The Changeling.
November-December will see the world premiere of The Louis Slotkin Sonata by Paul Mullin, followed by yet another world premiere in March-April of Brian Senter's Fathers & Sons. Senter, a Circle X company member, adapted this work from the famed Russian novel by Ivan Turgenev.
Each production will benefit a different Los Angeles charity organization. Pay- What-You-Can performances will be offered during each run. Call (213) 969-9239 for information.
