Response to COVID-19
July 6, 2020 - COVID-19 Update
We are taking great care and consideration in scheduling a season that will be safe for our patrons, artists and staff. We want to ensure that your health is our top priority and that we are planning responsibly. So, it is with an abundance of caution that Globe Theatre has decided to push back the start date and shorten the Main Stage season. If all goes according to plan, we will have a fantastic lineup of three plays beginning in January 2021—It promises to be a small but mighty season!
3-Play subscriptions are available now. Show titles and venues to be announced this fall. Book your subscriptions today.
We may be starting our season later than initially planned, but there is a silver lining! A delay allows us to move up the start date of the Prince Edward Building renewal project and we will be on our way to bringing our community the state-of-the-art theatre it needs and deserves. We are hoping to break ground this fall and then in January we will step out of our long-time home and take our shows around town while the building is undergoing renovations.
So, we are taking a bit of a break, but we aren't skipping a beat and we are here to keep you connected with our newly launched Globe Theatre Insider program! As an Insider, you will help to stabilize Globe Theatre, plus you get access to Insider benefits, like early access to tickets, invitations to exclusive events like a sneak peek at the Prince Edward Building design plans, exciting digital content and more. You will help ensure we are able to react to the changing needs of our community and continue providing high-quality theatre programming for years to come. Learn more.
March 19, 2020 - COVID-19 Update
On Monday, Globe Theatre sadly announced the cancellation of the remainder of our 2019|2020 season. This includes all Main Stage performances, the Sandbox Series, Theatre School Classes and the An Evening with Ruth Gala.
To continue to do our part in this health crisis, Globe Theatre has closed its doors to the public and we are making arrangements for staff to work from home in an effort to further social distance. This could take us a minute to get it all figured out.
We want to reassure our patrons that we are working as quickly as possible to respond and reach out to our valued ticket holders and theatre school families to review their options. We are grateful that many of our patrons are showing their support through donating the value of their tickets and registrations or allowing credit on their account for the upcoming season.
We promise we’ll be back.
Stay safe everyone and thank you for your continued support.
March 16, 2020 - COVID-19 Update
As we keep our eye on this rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic that is facing our world right now, we find ourselves in unchartered water.
After careful thought and consultation, Globe Theatre has determined that we will be temporarily closing our building doors in an effort to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19, effective immediately. This was a difficult decision as we weighed the safety and health of our patrons, students, volunteers and staff as well as the significant impact that it will have on independent actors, designers and Globe Theatre as a whole. The ripple effect is huge, and we have not made this decision in haste or isolation.
Effective immediately Globe Theatre building will be closed to public and we are cancelling the remainder of our 2019/20 season. This includes:
· all remaining performances of I Call myself Princess;
· The Boy In the Moon;
· Billy Elliot the Musical;
· Sandbox series shows The Circle and The Mystery Show;
· An Evening with Ruth Gala; and
· winter and spring Theatre School sessions.
I would like to take this opportunity to send my gratitude and appreciation to our Globe family during this time. We are doing our best to think this through, and to make decisions that are not based in fear but are influenced by experts and common sense.
This is a time for our world to respond and in turn act in ways of kindness and thoughtfulness. This is the lens that Globe is operating from.
It is with much gratitude, in this unprecedented time of global incident, that I say thank you for your patience, patronage and support.
Until we see one another again, take care of each other and be safe,
Jaime Boldt | Executive Director
How can I help?
How kind of you, your patience is greatly appreciated at this time. This situation will have a massive impact on community organizations across the world. If you are able, financial donations to Globe Theatre will go a long way to reducing the hardship that this is having on independent actors, designers and Globe Theatre as a whole.
Thank you for your continued support of Globe Theatre during this difficult time.
