PASSAGE THEATRE POSTPONES “A TWIST OF WATER” UNTIL SPRING 2021

Due to the current COVID-19 precautions, Passage Theatre has postponed its May production of A Twist of Water by Caitlin Parrish to the spring of 2021. We have also postponed our Solo Flights presentation of Mother (and me) by Melinda Buckley to June 19-21, 2020.

Passage is heartbroken to make this decision, as the artists have been working incredibly hard on preparing the production. However, Passage holds the health and safety of its artists and audience members in top priority. Unfortunately, A Twist of Water tickets are not able to be transferred to next season. Ticket holders can either receive a refund or kindly donate the cost of their ticket back to Passage.

Passage’s Artistic Director, Ryanne Domingues, says, “While we are truly heartbroken that we will not have the opportunity to share this beautiful play with our audience this season, we look forward to filling the house next year, when we can join together under more healthy and safe circumstances. We are incredibly grateful to our artists and staff for their hard work, and will continue to support them as best we can.”

In the following months, Passage's staff will be working from home and keeping busy with the following commitments: fundraising to close the projected income gap caused by the loss of revenue, continuing to pay its staff for as long as possible, providing payments to artists whose work has been canceled or postponed, planning for our upcoming 2020/2021 season productions, and finding new ways to connect to its audience through online videos, updates, and discussions

It is important for everyone to take care of themselves and stay informed by choosing reliable sources for information. Visit the CDC’s website for more COVID-19 details and developments at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
