Magic Theater Celebrating 45 Great Years
April 22, 2012 by James
One of San Francisco’s most beloved and highly regarded theater companies is celebrating its 45th anniversaries this year, and you are invited to add your artistic flair. The theater is hosting the BRUJA Mural Design Competition, and is inviting artists to submit a design that illuminates the world of BRUJA, a new play by Luis Alfaro.
The artwork in the mural should illustrate the themes of the play, the content of the story and be a “visual feast” for patrons, actors and staff. It will be reproduced on a wall, 20 feet wide by 12 feet high, in the Magic Theater’s lobby. The winner of the contest will receive a cash prize of $1,000 dollars, honorable mention in the playbill for BRUJA, a dedicated press release, an exclusive gallery-style unveiling and celebration, and complimentary tickets to the opening night of the show.
BRUJA is one of five plays in the 2011-2012 season. It is a haunting, sensual story that explodes one of the ancient myths that is firmly embedded in our culture. A copy of the BRUJA script can be obtained from the Magic Theater’s blog on its website.
The first play ever to be produced at the Magic Theater was “The Lesson”, directed by John Lion in 1967. Since then, many successful productions focusing on new American plays have been acted out on the stage. Over the years, printing companies have provided exceptional services for the theater, including flyer printing, poster printing and program brochure printing for a variety of special performances.
The Magic Theater’s 45th year promises to be an exciting one.
