Postponed due to COVID-19. Check back for details on the new dates



Bamboozled by Coronavirus!

With heavy but hopeful hearts, we're announcing that the 9th grade play will be postponed until further notice. We've been monitoring the situation with COVID-19 hourly. It is clear not only that the risk of transmission associated with gathering together in a theatre has increased in our county, but that this cast deserves to perform for a full audience who can enjoy the entertainment free of anxiety and fear of inception or perpetuating the spread of the virus. We want to be as responsible as possible, to care for our community and our cast and crew, and to help join the global effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. (We are looking into options for rescheduling the performances for a later date in May, possibly performing it outside in a manner true to the roots of commedia dell'arte, which was presented in streets and in town squares across Europe!)

Options for ticket holders:
If you already purchased tickets for Bamboozled, the value of the tickets can be credited to you in one of the following ways: Email to confirm how you'd like your tickets to be handled.
