Local theater bolsters area with quality performances


Published:

During the past five years, there has been something transformative happening to Brevard’s theater scene.

Steven Heron, the artistic director of the Titusville Playhouse, has rebuilt his theater from the ground up because he knows the value of quality theater.

“Theater exposes our communities to situations that make us laugh, love, but most of all, think,” he said. “Theater should, at some point, make the audience feel uncomfortable and through those awkward moments open the patron to feelings and thoughts they would not have been expecting to receive.”

The Titusville Playhouse is staging the musical “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

The Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse is taking Monty Python from the screen to the stage with “Spamalot.” The Henegar Center is staging the play “Ugly Lies the Bone.” Cocoa Beach’s Surfside Playhouse lightens the mood with the humorous “who-done-it” play “The Games Afoot.”
