This 2020-2021 season is all about flexibility and adventure. You might notice that the Season looks a little different this year. In the hopes of staying agile in the time of Coronavirus, we made lots of adjustments to the location and modality of our productions. With the support of our students, subscribers, and audience all over the globe, we’ve made it through to the last show of the season all while producing theatre that educates and inspires along the way!
Single tickets go on sale for each show 2-weeks prior to opening. An “All Access Pass” will be available September 1.
