3/18/2020 - Openstage's Response to COVID-19
As you are aware, the state and county have taken dramatic steps to slow the outbreak of COVID-19, and OpenStage Theatre has been actively working with government officials and our venues to ensure the health and safety of our patrons, artists and staff. OpenStage has always been a Company that brings the community together, and we had hoped to continue serving in that role during this difficult time. However, it is now clear that we are in uncharted territory, and as a result, we have postponed our etcetera season production of Constellations, hopefully to be rescheduled for later this summer. Our next Essential Season production, Neil Simon’s Rumors, will be moved to our soon to be announced 2020-2021 Season line up.
Ken Ludwig’s Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood is expected to continue as planned. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will keep you posted if any changes to that production arise.
If you are a season ticket holder or have purchased a ticket to either of these shows, the Lincoln Center Box office will be in touch via email.
We know that these changes will have a deep impact not only on our supporters, sponsors and audiences, but also on our Company of Artists. Their work deserves to be seen, celebrated and acknowledged, and it is heartbreaking to not share their artistry with you at this time.
As a non-profit organization, we sincerely thank you for your continued support as we work together to face the current challenge. If you are financially able to do so, we ask that you consider donating the value of a ticket purchase to OpenStage Theatre & Company to help us to defray production costs already incurred and to sustain OpenStage in what ultimately will prove to be a particularly difficult time for the arts community. To make a donation, please go to https://www.openstage.com/give/donate/
We realize these are uncertain times for all of us. Stay safe. Stay healthy. And, one day soon…WE WILL SEE YOU IN THE THEATER!
3/13/2020 - CONSTELLATIONS Performances Postponed:
Taking into consideration the potential impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus), in cooperation with our production partners, we are taking proactive, precautionary measures and have made the hard decision to postpone the remaining performances of "Constellations" in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater at FCMoD.
We are working with the Museum of Discovery to reschedule these performances for later in the season. All purchasers will be notified of the rescheduled performance dates and existing tickets will be honored for the new performance times. If you have any questions or concerns or would like to redeem the ticket value for future OpenStage performances please contact us directly at 970.484.5237 or [email protected]
We ask for your patience and understanding as we reply to all inquiries as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience and as a non-profit organization, sincerely thank you for your continued support as we all work together during this rapidly evolving scenario.
