A Re-Imagined 20/21 Season: Update

Due to the steady increase in COVID-19 cases and new guidelines from Actors' Equity Association, we have decided to make changes to the remainder of the 2020/2021 season for the health and safety of our artists, staff, and patrons.

We have found plays that we could produce that are exciting discoveries for you, speak to our lives right now, and work well in a streaming on demand format. Our commitment remains to entertain and engage the Central New York community during this time.

3-Play Passes available now for $90.



Free Public Streaming Performance,
Feb. 26 – 28

Enjoy a free stream of our virtual Children’s Tour, Danny, King of the Basement, a heartwarming story about a boy who creates an imaginary world to deal with the instability and hardship of his daily life. This powerful, yet playful production truthfully explores issues related to child poverty and homelessness, demonstrating how the power of friendship can change lives.
