Dear Playhouse on Park community:

Updated 4/26/2020

We continue to monitor all recommendations set forth by the CDC and Governor Ned Lamont with regard to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  As a result, the following decisions have been made:

Playhouse on Park is deemed a non-essential business and therefore closed until at least May 20th.  The staff was furloughed from March 16th - April 19th and have returned to work effective April 20th thanks to the Payroll Protection Program (PPP).  Everyone is working remotely and will be checking voicemail and email frequently.  Please do reach out and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  Call 860-523-5900 x 10 or email   

All Playhouse Theatre Academy classes follow their corresponding towns’ school emergency closing schedules. All schools in the State of CT are closed through May 20th.  As a result of the extended closing, we are currently working on a plan for online classes.   If you are enrolled in a class and are owed make-ups or future lessons, you will hear from us shortly with an online plan.   At this time we are hoping to proceed with our summer programs and will have an additional update on or before May 20th.     

stop/time dance theater’s production of DIVAS originally scheduled for March 25th - April 5th 2020 and then postponed until April 29th - May 10th 2020 has been postponed again. The new dates are TBD but this production will happen. Once we have an all clear from Governor Lamont to resume gathering in large groups, we will announce the new dates. Your tickets will automatically be moved to the new date and the box office will communicate this information with you. You will be able to exchange within the run if needed.  If the new dates do not work, we can discuss your options at that time.

The April 11, 2020 & May 16th and June 6th Comedy Nights will be postponed to dates to be determined. Once we have an all clear from Governor Lamont to resume gathering in large groups, we will announce the new dates. Your tickets will automatically be moved to the new date and the box office will communicate this information with you. You will be able to exchange within the run if needed.  If the new dates do not work, we can discuss your options at that time.

The production of Ugly Lies the Bone by Lindsey Ferrentino scheduled for April 22nd - May 10th 2020 has been cancelled. The summer musical It Shoulda Been You has been cancelled. We do hope to produce these shows in a future season. We ask that ticket holders strongly consider donating their tickets back to the theatre in lieu of requesting a refund.

Playwrights on Park scheduled for May 3rd has been cancelled.  

Encore! A Playhouse on Park Fundraising Party honoring the work of the legendary John Kander scheduled for May 30th has been postponed until next season.  A new date will be announced in the coming weeks.  

The Amazing Adventures of Doctor Wonderful and Her Dog by Lauren Gunderson has been postponed until next fall.  The Box Office will contact any schools that had planned field trips Field Trips and anyone who held tickets for the Public Performances. This show was scheduled from May 26th - June 12th and will be moved to October 27th - November 15th.     

At this time, we are offering Virtual Offerings for
Playhouse Theatre Academy Summer Youth Programs

This is an incredibly difficult time for non-profit arts organizations such as ours. If you are able, we do hope you will consider not asking for a refund if your show is cancelled. Please consider flipping your ticket purchase into a donation. We cannot thank you enough for your continued support of our theatre. Please stay home and stay healthy. We do hope so see you back here soon.
