Last season Hourglass became an Artistic Partner of Blackfriars Theatre. This year, there are even bigger changes ahead for Hourglass as we begin our Lucky 7th season!
Hourglass is proud to announce that we are now a Program of Blackfriars Theatre. Under the Blackfriars umbrella and the continued support of Blackfriars Artistic & Managing Director, Danny Hoskins, we look forward to bringing our audiences more of the thought-provoking, high-quality and entertaining play readings they have enjoyed over the years, as always, directed and performed by some of Rochester’s finest theatre veterans.
Maria Scipione and Michelle Brown, our wonderful, much-loved former co-producers, will be moving on to other pursuits. Sandi Henschel, Artistic Director & Producer of Hourglass, welcomes new Associate Producers, Jodi Beckwith and Allison Roberts, as well as House Manager, Jack Simel. Barbara Lobb remains an integral part of the Hourglass family, creating the flyers and program designs, while our website www.hourglassplays.org is in the capable hands of Sarah Sortino. Finally, Hourglass is happy to welcome back Andy Turnquist for his 2nd season as our stage manager.
