Welcome to Conundrum Theatre Company!
Like so many others who have been affected by Covid-19, we here at Conundrum Theatre Company were forced to cancel our next production and possibly our entire 2020 season.
While we may not be able to enjoy live theater until 2021, the team at Conundrum decided to turn to creativity to continue our mission of bringing together working professionals (including a lawyer, a teacher, a COO and a rocket scientist!) to create, produce, and perform original musicals. The Board of Conundrum Theatre Company is proud to share our second original, virtual musical with you: Quarantine Breakup. This show is about a couple that breaks up during quarantine and all written, performed, and produced by all of us here at Conundrum during the quarantine.
Whether you're an essential worker, directly impacted by this illness, or just social distancing at home, this video is for you. This is our small way as a nonprofit theatre company to give back. We will get through this together and live theatre will be back soon!
In the meantime, please consider a tax-deductible donation to our group to help us come back from this pandemic ready to bring innovative theater to audiences again. As a special bonus, we will create an original 15-minute musical for any donations over $2,500 on a subject of the donor's choosing!
Our Statement Re: Black Lives Matter
We are aware of the importance of diversity in our theatrical community and previously tried to cultivate it by encouraging actors to think outside the box for roles and promoting casting diversity. We realize now that this was a passive approach. We are determined to be better. Going forward, we will be proactive in our approach. We are educating ourselves on Black creators and artists in the musical theater space. We are directly reaching out to potential Black collaborators and using our platform to amplify BIPOC voices. We recognize that Broadway is overwhelmingly white and historically racist. We are recommitting ourselves to being anti-racist and active in our pursuit of racial equality in the theater.
