Well the curtains closed Monroe, Illinois:  Over Here/Townie at The Flea on December 21st marking the end of a very successful year for On the Square Productions.  From a successful second season kickoff of Our Developmental Play Reading Series, to critical acclaim of Over Here/Townie, we have been quite busy, and we have no intentions of slowing down!  This February will we be producing In Your Image by UK playwright Rob Benson at 59E59.  Stay tuned for more specifics in our up coming posts.

As 2010 draws to a close Rachel and Jackie have selected a few highlights from the year passing.  Here’s to another great year!


1.  The awesome press we received for Monroe, Illinois- check out our review at NYTheatre.com!
2.  Gearing up to do Benson’s In Your Image at 59e59
3.  Creating relationships with small businesses like DiWine and The Brick Cafe
4.  Artists Brunch at The Brick Cafe
1.  Making our $2000 Kickstarter goal!  Thanks so much to our awesome donors.  We couldn’t have done it without your support and encouragement!
2.  Our sold out run of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in our Astoria garden!  Too much fun!
3.  Our kickoff event- “Wingin’ It” in which we heard short scripts from many different playwrights and actors.
Whew!  What a jam-packed year.  Here’s to you, 2010!  You’ve been so good to us, and we’re looking forward to a wonderful 2011!
