As Leach Theatre drops the curtain on its 25th anniversary season, it is time to reflect on a season well-spent and begin preparations for the next 25 years.
The theater’s silver anniversary kicked off in September 2016 with a sold-out gala performance by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. STOMP and a performance by the Russian National Ballet also sold out. Acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma packed the house for the Remmers Special Artist/Lecturer Series.
So how can the theater top that this coming season? Easy. … At 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29, William Shatner, cultural icon and Star Trek titan, will perform a solo act. Tickets go on sale Sept. 1.
“We think he is the perfect person to cap off our anniversary celebrations with one last hurrah — or laser blast, in this case,” says Emily Brickler, managing director of Leach Theatre.
