BUFFALO'S NEWEST THEATRE COMPANY ANNOUNCES FIRST SEASON AT THE PARK SCHOOL OF BUFFALO.
First Look Buffalo Theatre Company, dedicated to the development and production of new plays, will be in residence at The Park School of Buffalo for its 2022-23 season.
With a company of thirty-five ensemble actors, six directors and nine playwrights, founders Bob Rusch and John Patrick Patti will present a series of staged productions, readings, and workshops in the 110-seat theatre located at 4625 Harlem Road in Amherst, NY.
"The Park School's Theatre allows us great flexibility and creativity when designing a show. The computerized light board offers a wide array of instruments at our disposal. We are truly excited to begin this relationship with this prestigious institution with a 100 year history of innovation."
---Bob Rusch, Artistic Director
"I'm excited about the location of our new residency at a state of the art theatre on the beautiful Park School campus. It's so quick and easy to get to from the city or the suburbs and there's plenty of free parking, which was a bit of an issue at previous theaters."
---John Patrick Patti, Ensemble Manager
Although this is First Look Buffalo's inaugural season as a not-for-profit theatre company, the group has been producing locally for three years under the name First Look Buffalo Stage
Productions, at both the former Theatre Loft/Ujima Theatre and The New Phoenix Theatre on the Park, respectively.
First Look Buffalo Theatre Company's upcoming season will include a world premiere, two east coast premieres, a one-act/one-location festival and nine staged readings of new plays written by members of the playwright wing:
