Rest in Peace, WTC Founding Member and Friend, Howard Hupe

Dear Friends of the Winters Theatre Company, it is with deep sadness we inform you that one of our Founding Members and beloved friend, director, actor and mentor, Howard Hupe, passed away yesterday. Howard devoted his heart and soul to the creation and vitality of WTC and produced a wonderful community theatre venue for Winters and the Yolo County region which is now over 35 years strong. We will miss Howard deeply and it is extremely difficult to imagine producing a show without him. He has touched hundreds of us with his kindness, advice, caring, humor and grace.

Please join us in prayers for his wife, Germaine, and sons, Bruce and Jeff, and the entire Hupe family. We will post about services as information becomes available.

Thank you

–Anita Ahuja and the WTC Board of Directors

Shakespeare Under The Stars Returns in August!

Once again, we are pleased to announce another Shakespeare in the Park production, presented by the Winters Theatre Company, the incomparable “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare.

This classic comedy of mistaken identity, foolery, and sword fights will delight, enlighten and entertain…and razzle and dazzle!   Set in the mythical kingdom of Illyria, it is the story memorialized in the film, Shakespeare in Love, and how twins, Sebastian and Viola, are supposedly drowned. But Viola survives, assuming the identity of her brother.

The show will run Fridays and Saturdays, August 4th, 5th, 11th, and 12th, starting at 8pm. Performed in the outdoor amphitheater behind the community center, there is plenty of room for tiered lawn seating, or feel free to bring your lawn chair. Refreshments will be available for purchase, or you can bring your own. Local Yolo County wines will be available for purchase.

Ticket prices are $5 general and free for children under 12 when accompanied by an adult.  Tickets are available at the door.

For more information, please call 530-795-4014, or email winterstheatre@gmail.com .

 

Thanks for Supporting our Special Showing of “SEVEN”

In observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Winters Theatre Company presented a special benefit performance of SEVEN at the Woodland Opera House on April 8th, 2017.  The show was performed by the Winters Theatre Company as part of its regular season last October in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.   Two local non-profit organizations who assist victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, Empower Yolo and My Sister’s House, were the beneficiaries of this performance.
