Bucks County Playhouse to announce summer plays

The Bucks County Playhouse will announce the two plays for its shortened summer season on Tuesday, and will offer $19.39 tickets to the first 50 patrons.

The summer season is scheduled to start with a July 2 gala and opening, following months of renovations. The theater has been dark since December 2010, when the bank foreclosed on longtime owner Ralph Miller

The $19.39 tickets will be offered to commemorate the playhouse’s original opening season in 1939. 

The season will offer a play and a musical through Labor Day, with live music and Actors Equity performers, Producing Director Jed Bernstein has said. The playhouse will then close for renovations, reopening in November for a holiday show, leading to year-round operation next year.

Besides Bernstein, playhouse President Tanya Cooper and William Hammerstein, the grandson of Broadway great Oscar Hammerstein, will announce the lineup at the iconic New Hope theater at 3 p.m.

In the event of rain, the announcement, which is open to the public, will be made at The Logan Inn, at 10 W. Ferry St.
