The continuing COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on our friends and partnering theatres across Ontario. It is both our opinion and theirs that the safety of the patrons, artists and staff must be first and foremost our top priority. Through this it has become evident, there is little hope of reopening their doors this year. Therefore we simply cannot mount or planned touring production of 2020/2021. While we hope to present that work in future years, our immediate focus must be on artistic ventures that lend themselves to production in the current extraordinary circumstances.
The cancellation of our planned touring season stings. But as we look ahead to regroup and refocus our efforts we are excited by the new possibilities that it will bring. We have no intentions of taking the year off and meeting the challenges ahead will no doubt lead to something special.
We thank you for standing by us in 2020, and we look forward to reconnecting with our partnering venues and welcoming you once more to new and exciting theatre.
