What’s Happening at CRT
February 1, 2021
Hello CRT Friends,
What a year it has been! Nearly twelve months ago, Broadway dimmed its lights and theatres around the world, including CRT, rushed to reimagine performing arts in the time of a pandemic.
Looking ahead to Summer 2021, CRT is filled with hope and excitement. While the logistics are still being determined, we are collaborating with our local Silver Thread Public Health District and community partners to create a season that protects the health and wellness of our company and patrons; complies with government mandates; and meets the safety standards set by Actor’s Equity Association (AEA), the union of actors and stage managers.
We will not be moving forward with the original 2020 Summer Season lineup (Grounded, Fully Committed, The Roommate, Annie, Oklahoma!, and The Importance of Being Earnest), looking instead towards a season of small-cast plays, cabarets, and more in various outdoor locations. This season will open later in the summer than usual and likely run a little longer. Details on shows, dates, and performance locations will be announced in the spring.
CRT is scheduled to hold all of its usual Educational Programming in 2021, including camps, the KID Show, and our Young Audience Outreach Tour in the fall. Details will be announced this spring. In the meantime, please check out our new online content, including Cozy Corner, Craft Time, and Season 2 of The Adventures of Sunny & Blue – something new every weekday!
The process of getting back onstage has been frustratingly slow, but we hope to be able to provide a safe space for artists and patrons to enjoy the artistry, passion, and excitement of creating theatre. We’re doing our part, but there are factors like volume of cases in our region and availability of tests outside of our control. You can help us by wearing a mask, distancing, and following other safety protocols to help keep our community healthy and our theatre open.
Thank you for all of your support through this difficult year. We say that this is ‘your theatre, always,’ because through thick and thin this community has always stood by CRT.
As always, I would love to answer any of your questions – please don’t hesitate to reach out or stop me at the K-Belle. I hope you and your family are staying healthy and well.
All the best,
Producing Artistic Director
