‘Fences’ opening postponed at Stage 3 theater

Stage 3 Theatre Company of Sonora has postponed the opening of “Fences,” the first play in its 2013 season.

“Fences,” a Pulitzer Prize winning drama by August Wilson, was scheduled to open tonight but instead will open next Friday, Feb. 15 so that the company has more time to prepare. 

 

“This is the first time we’ve had to do this,” said Don Bilotti, the play’s director and Stage 3’s artistic director. “This production is too important to the theater and the community to not give it our absolute best shot.”

A benefit preview Thursday night went on as scheduled.

“Fences” tells the story of Troy Maxson, a star of the Negro baseball leagues whose career was strangled by racism. After scraping his life together, forces at the dawn of the Civil Rights era threaten to rip apart everything he’s struggled to build.

The New Yorker magazine called it “Gorgeous. Thrilling. Unmissable.”
