The historic Bucks County Playhouse, in New Hope, Pennsylvania, has announced it will be reopening by summer 2012.

The theater, which has sat empty since late 2010, will be undergoing renovations and a revitalization project prior to the launch of the season, which will include two summer productions and a 2012 holiday show. Plans are also in place for a spring gala to benefit the Playhouse.

The reopening has been achieved through the coordinated efforts of the Bridge Street Foundation (Kevin & Sherri Daugherty, Founders; Tanya Cooper, President), Broadway Producer Jed Bernstein, and Bucks County Playhouse Conservancy (Peggy McRae, Founder). With the theater now readying to reopen, the Bucks County Playhouse Conservancy is dissolving, having accomplished its mission. McRae will join the Bucks County Playhouse as the Director of Community Affairs effective February 1.

It was also announced today that BCP will introduce a theater membership program.
