2020-21 A Season Like No Other
Well, folks, we have a new season planned for 2020-21. But due to COVID 19 it won’t look much like any other season. We are compelled to keep doing theatre, so we’re determined to do what we can. As you might expect, this plan could change as circumstances change.
We will have live performances with physically distanced audiences and will be experimenting with different media and different venues to bring you theatrical events throughout the fall, winter and spring.
