Dear Friends and Patrons of Old Courthouse Theatre:
As the threat of COVID-19 continues to affect our everyday lives, know that Old Courthouse Theatre is committed to keeping our volunteers, patrons, and community safe. We are implementing new cleaning guidelines to protect against the spread of the virus, and we hope to re-open soon. However, as the threat continues to be a present challenge, it is after much consideration that the board of directors has decided to move the production of "Mamma Mia!" to a Spring musical for our 45th Season.
While this decision was not an easy one to make, we remain committed to bringing quality theatre entertainment to Cabarrus County in the safest way possible. We feel this decision is the responsible choice at this time. This production is now scheduled for May 6-9, 2021, and May 13-16, 2021. For any of our patrons that had already purchased tickets to the original performance, your tickets will be transferred to the new show dates that corresponds with your current ticket (Ex. If your ticket was for the first Friday performance in August, it will automatically transfer to the first Friday performance in May). If you have any issues or need to request a different date, please contact our box office.
We are planning on opening our 45th Season with the production of "Clue" in October. Until then, we have been working diligently on bringing our Living Room Reading Series back in a virtual platform. There will also be an original play, "Ashes", written and directed by Andy Rassler that will be available for streaming starting next week. We also have begun work on our annual 10-Minute Play Festival. This year's theme is "Enough, Already!" We are hoping to be able to perform our 10-minute shows this year both live and through online streaming. However, as further information is disseminated about the pandemic, we will do whatever is necessary to keep our patrons and volunteers safe. Please watch your email, as well as our website and social media accounts for updates.
Please know how grateful we are to have a community that supports the arts and has continued to support the Old Courthouse Theatre over the past 45 years. During this difficult time when no revenue is entering the organization through productions, we are working hard to improve our practices to continue to serve this community. Your generosity, support, and prayers are now more important than ever. Thank you for continuing to allow us to serve you. We look forward to welcoming you all back into our theater soon.
Old Courthouse Theatre Board of Directors, President
