Theater group makes Impacte

Following through on plans leaked during last April's Orlando International Fringe Festival, playwright/director Tod Kimbro and his Impacte Productions staff last Friday signed a lease for a permanent performance space at 237 University Park Drive in Winter Park. The theater will host a regular schedule of original productions and pre-existing works performed by Impacte and such theatrical locals as the Cerulean Group. The first on-site offering will be the Sept. 15 debut of Caffeine, an ongoing live sitcom set in an Orlando coffee bar. A grand-opening party will follow Sept. 17. Workshops and classes are also planned. Tickets went on sale Aug. 15; call (407) 672-4868. Tickets are also available at Knight's Corner College Bookstore, 12209 University Blvd.
