2018 Season Preview


Please join us for our 2018 Season preview! You are welcome to pre-register for the event here. In lieu of our January 2018 general meeting, we’re presenting a sneak peek at the productions comprising our 51st season: More Than Meets the Eye.

“There’s always another story. There’s more than meets the eye.” – W.H. Auden

Founded in 1967 in Fair Lawn by a handful of dreamers who wanted to make the joy of theatre performance available to everyone, Old Library Theatre began a five decade journey of reflecting, and contributing, to its time. As the arc of history and the shape of art bent toward progress and back again, we held a mirror up to the human experience, bringing the tragedies and triumphs of great fictional characters to our community, and challenging performers and patrons alike to consider how those stories could shape their own. This season, Old Library Theatre presents stories featuring singular characters whose internal dreams rarely match their external realities. Experience what can happen when you look closer and discover the more behind each pair of eyes. We hope you will join us!

Tuesday, January 23, 7:30pm

This event is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments will be served in the lobby prior to the preview. Those who preregister will receive a special gift.
