    As we begin the new year, we have a few questions for you…. Are you itching to perform a BERKS COUNTY PREMIERE?! Would you love to perform in a large, several hundred seat theatre?! Lastly, are you a disco lover?!

    As we begin the new year, Reading Civic Theatre would like to remind everyone that we will be performing a smash hit production of a newly released, Tony nominated Broadway musical, this September! Due to contractual restrictions, we cannot release the name of the show, but suffice it to say the story and the upbeat music is a favorite of more than just the theatre community! Audition information will be forthcoming! Check out our Auditions Tab in the Spring for more information.
