The Playhouse is on Pause

After careful consideration of public health guidelines and with the well-being of our Playhouse community in mind, we have made the decision to postpone our 2020 season. The curtain will go up again in 2021, when we hope to present the originally 2020 scheduled programming; five mainstage plays featuring the reimagining of Ain’t Misbehavin’, five Script-in-Hand readings, and Family Festivities presentations for young audiences. We also look forward to once again giving the gift of time and space to playwrights, directors, and casts in our New Works Initiatives lab.

Traditional season ticket packages and Flex Passes will return in 2021. 2020 season ticket holders will continue to enjoy the same discounts and seat locations in 2021.

2020 season ticket or single ticket holders are being contacted with further information. If by April 30 our emails and letters have not been able to reach you, we want to hear from you! There are several ways to connect with our working-from-home box office staff.
