COVID-19 Updates

Covid-19 has hit the performing arts industry especially hard. State guidelines are just now beginning to ease up for indoor  live theatre after over a year of forced closure.

Our main priority is to keep all volunteers, cast, audience and their families safe during this health crisis. We have started our process of allowing indoor events and released these additional rental guidelines for our tenants Covid Compliant Guidelines 


While we do understand that those who are not suffering from the virus or those who recover from it may want to help, for now we are following state and CDC guidelines. The Board of Directors has been meeting via zoom, and once we begin our programs we will reinstate opportunities  for in person volunteering.

Please consider making a donation to The Playhouse

We will all get through this crisis together.

Covid -19 General Volunteer Guidelines

Our primary goals are to:

  • Protect Volunteers

  • Protect Patrons

  • Weather the financial hardships and support our community during a time with no income.
