News for the Upcoming Season – Updated August 21, 2020
During this time while our theatres remain closed, we are planning our way forward. We cannot imagine having no theatre until there is a vaccine, and we believe there is a way of coming back safely with our collective imagination engaged like never before. With this in mind, we are devising a new season filled with amazing events and productions, embracing a more distilled and direct approach to storytelling. A full update will be shared soon. Some previously announced titles will be postponed to a later season, but we’re excited about our positive path forwards producing Shakespeare and other great classical dramatists.
We’re optimistic about our future. However, we have to be safe and prudent about our limited resources. We have been forced to recognize that surviving this crisis means making painful but necessary changes.
Due to the uncertain nature of the pandemic, our reduced income, and ongoing fixed costs, we have had to cut our annual budget and reduce our full-time staff by a third. We are deeply saddened to lose such incredible expertise across so many areas. The quality of STC’s work on and off our stages is due to the individual and collective brilliance of our employees, and words cannot express our profound debt of gratitude.
We thank our subscribers, donors, and friends for helping us get through this time. The gifts made to the Phoenix Fund have been transformative. We are confident that the support we continue to receive through this fund, as well as through individual memberships, sponsorships, and donated tickets, will sustain us to our reopening. Every day we work towards that moment when we can welcome audiences back and the healing power of theatre can resume
