On Sept. 30, Seattle’s Open Circle Theater disbanded. “Choosing to dissolve one of Seattle’s longest existing fringe theater companies was difficult, but the organization’s financial standing was beyond repair,” according to a news release sent out by the theater. Open Circle’s first season was in 1992, and the theater had a home on Second Avenue.
Also from the release: “Our planned remount of The Rocky Horror Show is being taken over by The Schoolyard, the new home of much of our former creative talent. Tickets are on sale on Brown Paper Tickets. “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm at the Re-Bar in Seattle.
“A wake will be held for fans, former company members, and the public to share their stories over a beer or cocktail. We encourage fans to leave a note on Open Circle’s Facebook group.”
