1969 was Burn Brae Dinner Theatre’s second season. After a three-show season in the latter half of 1968, Messrs. Kinnamon and Levin decided to redouble their efforts and offer seven (7) shows in 1969. While data from the early years of the enterprise continues to be difficult to find, performances dates have been uncovered for all seven shows in second season. This has been deduced by taking hard evidence from show programs and other available print media, knowledge about typical opening days (Thursdays) and closing days (Sundays) and turnaround time between shows (three full days) to compute actual run dates for each production.
Unfortunately, there is one show that remains unknown. Using the tools and methods described above, we believe that this “Mystery Show” opened on Thursday, May 22 and closed on Sunday, June 29.
Any contributions, anecdotal or otherwise, that you might offer will be most eagerly welcomed!
