Evolution Theatre Company SEASON CANCELLATION
Evolution Theatre Company has decided to cancel its 2020 Season entirely.
After much consideration, keeping in mind the health and safety of our audience as well as that of our actors, staff, crew, and production associates, we have come to the conclusion that cancelling the season is the most responsible thing to do, as there will be a gradual lifting of restrictions with a continued need for social distancing and other protective measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which understandably will take weeks and months of incremental results.
The good news is that we are in the process of planning the rescheduling of everything in our 2020 Season to 2021 with the exception of the Rainbow Wave Playwrights Festival which is currently being broadcast online via YouTube. Our Playwrights Festival will, in the coming weeks, have its own YouTube Channel where all the plays in the festival will be available for viewing for a limited time. Throughout the remainder of the shutdown we will continue adding to and broadcasting an online selection of new play readings.
For the remainder of 2020, Evolution Theatre Company will function primarily as an online, digital presence as we adapt to government and societal parameters concerning the outbreak of COVID-19.
Should restrictions be fully lifted and theatres be opened once again later in the year, we are prepared to mount modified small-scale productions with fully implemented social distancing techniques and guidelines in place. The press will be made aware of this as it happens.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
