Update from the Board of Directors

Update from the Board of Directors

We’re itching to start doing theatre again. COVID-19 has changed everything for many of us. It’s impact on the performing arts is particularly serious and could last for a long time. Our Board has prepared an Update to keep you informed about where we are and where we hope to be going.

Read the update here

We’re playing with various ways we can keep the creative juices flowing without endangering our artists or our patrons. We’re also looking for creative ways to keep our finances in the black when two necessary and major capital projects are in midstream.

The update also lays out a way in which you can help us keep theatre thriving through a donation to a special fund.

We hope you will read the letter and consider your response.

We are exploring various ways we might keep theatre alive during these COVID restrictions. Kim MacMillan is working on an online reading of Outside Mullingar, a delightful Irish love story by the celebrated  John Patrick Shanley (Doubt and many others) which is scheduled for full performance (cross your fingers) next April.

The Artistic Committee has brainstormed a whole list of possibilities including two person scripts, improv, and monologues all presented online. We’re also looking into the possibility of using outdoor venues where audience members can keep their distance. The Board and Artistic Committee is holding a backyard session July 4th so stay tuned for more news.

Theatre on the Edge 2020

We all knew it might come to this. In the time of a global pandemic, decisions must be made. With the heaviest of hearts, for the safety of artists, patrons and volunteers, we made the difficult one to cancel TOTE 2020.

Because we want you to be safe.

But, look, just because we can’t do a festival this year doesn’t mean we’re going away! You still want/need interesting and edgy theatre, right? Us too.

That’s why we’re already planning ways to bring you the edgy and interesting experiences that TOTE is known for – as soon as we are able. 

Performers have already been reaching out to ask how they can help and let us know that they want to bring you more Art! Theatre! Magic!

Look to this site to bring you news of future shows, theatre highlights, and of course, news about TOTE 2021!

Thank you for sharing in our excitement for interesting and new theatre. It means the world.
