Latest News

We’re excited to release our 2020-2021 Anniversary Season, and ask for your patience as we navigate the changes brought on by COVID-19. We are committed to following recommended guidelines for group gatherings and realize we may need to modify as we go along. There are a few changes you may see:

  1. Your ticket purchase is refundable in the event we need to cancel due to community health concerns. We’ll also refund your ticket if you have personal concerns about attendance or if you are ill. Order with confidence!
  2. We may make changes in order to provide a safe environment. That could mean changing seating charts, changing tickets to general admission, or reducing capacity for a performance. We reserve the right to request/require masks to confirm with evolving guidelines. We reserve the right to only accept credit cards, or to allow advance tickets sales only.
  3. We’ll make every effort to provide a clean environment. We will have hand sanitizer stations available and will clean surfaces (such as armrests and bathrooms) before and between performances.
  4. We’ll do our part to ensure your safety, and ask that you do your part by staying home if you are ill or have direct exposure. Together, we can keep it safe for us to gather and enjoy the beauty of the arts!
