On October 3rd and 4th, WERS will host an on-air celebration, called Standing Room Only: Kitchen Kickline, marking what would have been the start of the Fall 2020 Boston theater season.
In partnership with Greater Boston Stage Company, Moonbox Productions, New Repertory Theater, SpeakEasy Stage, Voices of Hope, and Wheelock Family Theater, this broadcast event will feature live, at-home performances from each of these companies.
Join us as we raise up our voices – along with those of our community – in an outright refusal of physical distance getting in the way of enjoying all that Boston theater has to offer.
In addition to on-air performances from some of our favorite local theaters, Phil Jones will be hosting a roundtable discussion on the future of the local theater scene in the face of COVID-19. Moderated by Emerson College’s Annie Levy, Artistic Director of Emerson Stage, this conversation will stream on Facebook and cover topics such as keeping the spirit of theater alive during quarantine, considerations for reopening in 2021, and the future of theater in a post-COVID world.
thank you to our sponsors!
Kitchen Kickline is made possible in part through the generosity of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, Daniel from Burlington, Elizabeth from Framingham, Michael Goldstein '84, David from Somerville, and WERS sustaining members.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information, contact our Associate Director of Underwriting and Corporate Support, Ali Dorman Fernandez.
