An update on our 2020 Season from Artistic Director David Drake
Creating a safe, nurturing and exciting space to assemble is central to my mission as Artistic Director of the Provincetown Theater. It anchors the core of my lifelong devotion to live theater. And so, it is with my deepest gratitude that I thank you for attending and supporting our ongoing efforts in developing a new arena to gather during these tumultuous times – online. To everyone who joined in to watch the Memorial Day Weekend presentation of Our Townie Variety Show, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The outpouring of emails, calls and texts throughout this past week has aided our team in staying the course and in keeping the Provincetown Theater healthy, joyous and connected. Again, I thank you.
And more innovative virtual programming is to come.
But we must meet the needs of now. Moving forward, in adhering to the Massachusetts government’s new four-phase guidelines to stem the spread of coronavirus, the board of directors and I made the necessary decision to reschedule all of our 2020 productions to the 2021 season. Our top priority in moving through this health crisis has always been – and will continue to be — the safety of our patrons, our staff, and the dozens of actors, artists and volunteers involved throughout the season. Our commitment to developing new virtual programs for you is now our utmost creative goal. As we initiated them in March, all virtual programming will continue to be streamed on our website (on our Virtual Programming page) via our YouTube channel. So, please check back often for updates.
Furthermore, all programs will continue to be streamed free-of-charge, though donations are greatly appreciated. Indeed, it is precisely because of your love, support and donations that we’ve been able to continue developing these new means of gathering in this anxious and isolating moment.
As always, my most sincere wishes of strength and good health to you and your loved ones.
