BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The new year could be a very good one for a Boca-based not-for-profit production company preparing to debut its new play. Here’s what you need to know from the brand new “Parade Productions”:
//This January, Parade Productions, a new professional, not-for-profit theatre company, has its debut performance of the “Brooklyn Boy” starring Avi Hoffman at The Studio at Mizner Park. The executive producer of Parade Productions is Mrs. Candace Caplin, a resident of Broken Sound in Boca Raton, who is making a lifelong dream come true. “It’s always a challenge to start a theatre company,” Caplin says. “That said, when you have a passion to do something, you have to want it more than you fear it.”
Karen Rosenberg, the project’s Associate Producer, works with an Advisory Committee of 16, which includes many Broken Sound residents. She says, “It’s a privilege to work with someone to achieve their dream. It’s also a privilege to work with our volunteers and supporters, who have been beyond amazing.” A strong supporter of the arts, Rosenberg is adamant that live theatre be saved for coming generations. “Theatre is an art form that’s going to be lost unless we all do our part to keep it alive.”
Caplin believes that theatre is all about community. “Part of what’s wonderful about theatre is that you can’t do it alone. It literally takes a village. And our village, especially Broken Sound, has been behind us from the beginning. We couldn’t be more grateful.” “We’re excited,” she adds. “This is an opportunity to bring more live, professional theatre right here to Boca Raton. There’s something about sharing a theatrical experience with your friends and neighbors. It’s great to know that you’re part of a community that values and supports the arts, the creative spirit, the world of ideas.”
“Brooklyn Boy” will be presented at The Studio at Mizner Park, 201 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, FL 33432 (formerly the Cartoon Museum) from January 26-February 12, 2012. For tickets, go online to ParadeProductions.org or call 561-445-9244 for groups or info.//
