THE REVIEW

The ALLEY THEATRE  has adjusted the upcoming season to accommodate the safety and health of BOTH our audience and actors.  Although it isn’t the best scenario, we feel it is the most prudent…and the right thing to do.

The first two productions planned: “OUR TOWN” & “A CHRISTMAS CAROL” have been removed from the Season lineup and will be set, in the same slots, in the 2021/2022 SEASON.  Our upcoming season will begin with “BLITHE SPIRIT” in January 2021.

Likewise, THE GREENBERG PLAYS, which were set to be performed in September of this year, will now be performed in March of 2021, immediately following our production of “AMADEUS”.

GENERAL AUDITIONS for the 2021 SEASON will now be NOVEMBER 14, 15, 2020.

We hope for no other changes but will monitor the situation, listen to the medical experts, and follow the lead given to all theatres around the country from theatre professionals and unions.  The safety and health of the audience AND actors is our primary concern.  When we do return to LIVE PERFORMANCES, please know that every effort will be made to follow health guidelines and keep everyone safe, comfortable, and entertained.

F.A.Q.s:
1. Will the remaining plays be performed IN THE THEATRE on the SAME DATES?  Yes, that is the plan so far.
2. Is is still possible to purchase a GOLDEN TICKET? Yes, GOLDEN TICKETS for the “Three-Show Season” are now $30, and all the perks remain.
3. What if I have already purchased a single ticket for “OUR TOWN” and “A CHRISTMAS CAROL”?You have some choices: you may apply your payment toward NEXT season
– you may apply your payment as a donation to the theatre
– you may apply your payment for EXTRA tickets for the remaining shows
– you may request a refund. 
Simply call the BOX OFFICE (765.643.0701), leave a message, we will call you back and arrange for whatever you would like.
