2020 Summer Theatre Festival

Given the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 health crisis, we must postpone our opening date for the 2020 season from May 1. We have not set a new date at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and when we can safely do so, we will announce an opening date. In the meantime our staff is hard at work coming up with innovative ways to deliver our programming to you through our website and social media platforms.  Please check our Facebook page and website for updates!


NOTICE: If restrictions on public gatherings and rules on social distancing due to the current COVID-19 crisis have not been lifted by the date of the following events, they will be rescheduled.
