As signs of spring return to the Outer Cape we are reminded of how much our world has changed over the past eight weeks. Our daily conventions and social institutions have been upended as we work together to protect the health and well-being of our neighbors and communities. Recognizing that we must take a proactive stance to slow the spread of COVID-19 we have made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel our 2020 summer season.
We are committed to resuming operations only when it is deemed safe and in the best interest of our community. We remain engaged with state and local officials and our community partners in developing strategies for moving forward and re-opening in the safest manner possible. Your health, along with the health of our staff and artists, are our primary concerns at this time.
We are eager to welcome you back, and share performances that uplift humanity, are reflective of our time, and inspire laughter, reflection, and transformation.
