TAMPA, Fla. (August 19, 2014) –Powerstories Theatre presents a new theatre program: “The PowerPlay Series”. The new season of shows will be announced on Friday, September 5th at the Powerstories Theatre Open Mic Night which will be held from 7pm-10pm at 2105 W. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, FL 33606. The first show of the new “PowerPlay Series” performance season begins October 2014 and runs through April 2015. The “PowerPlay Series” is a new season of shows which will include:
Three new plays designed for our community theatre on Kennedy Blvd.
Two special features to engage the audience and drive the community to action
Powerstories Theatre recently hired Artistic Director Nicole Evans Haumesser to lead the efforts for this new series. Nicole holds a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre and education from Indiana University and has over 20 years experience in professional theatre, most recently at Ruth Eckerd Hall. When asked what kinds of theatre Nicole is most excited about, Nicole responded “There is something uniquely compelling about the shared human experience of live performance. I am both honored and astatic to bring powerful, entertaining, thought provoking theatre to Tampa audiences through the new POWERPlay series at Powerstories Theater”.
The new “PowerPlay Series” is an addition to our previous season of two original shows featuring girls’ stories and one original show featuring women’s stories. Between the existing original shows by women and girls and the implementation of these three produced works, Powerstories will now be able to present a season of five shows to the general public.
