The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza, written by Don Zolidis, is an adaption of some of the most popular ancient Greek myths. You might think “how boring.” With this youthful energetic cast, it’s anything but boring! It’s playing this and next weekend at the Pit and Balcony, Saginaw. Showing in the evening on Saturday and the afternoon on Sunday.

How do you prepare for love? I am here to oppose you because the path you are on is a reckless one. They’ll change the stinking world. These are just some of the more memorable lines from Pit and Balcony’s most recent production, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. The play, a regional premier, focuses on the relationship between Joanna Drayton and her new fiance’, Dr. John Prentice. John is older than Joanna, a widower, and black. The year is 1967 and a relationship between a white woman and a black man is not readily accepted, by anyone, including family.

Pit and Balcony Theater celebrated the beginning of the Christmas season with a packed house for the premier of Elf the Musical. The “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” show featured an ensemble cast including Spencer Beyerlein as Buddy the Elf, Brian Bateson as Walter, and Will Kircher as Santa. Co-directors, Judy Harper and Jeanne Gilbert, guided the cast and crew to present a show that was engaging and a true delight to witness.

Pit and Balcony Theater presents for its 90th season opener, Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express,” adapted by Ken Ludwig.

This 2014 Pulitzer Prize winner for drama is labeled experimental theater for a reason. The seating and the projection booth are the stage, and the stage is where the audience sits. Cleaver minimal costumes, mops and brooms for props, and extra house lighting are also unique to this drama.
