Theatre By The Sea postpones 2021 summer season

Posted

Due to the COVID restrictions and capacity limits currently in place in the state of Rhode Island, coupled with the safety protocols required by the artistic unions with which Theatre By The Sea is associated, Bill Hanney, Theatre By The Sea’s owner and producer, has announced that the theatre will be unable to move forward with the originally planned 2021 summer season.

The theatre is in communication with the publishing houses, which hold the licensing rights, in order to secure permission to produce the previously selected musicals during the summer of 2022. Subscriber tickets will automatically be transferred to the 2022 season.

“Although we are unable to move forward with the season we had planned, we have gotten permission to reschedule the pre-season production of ‘Mamma Mia!’ until the end of the summer,” Hanney said. “We are hopeful that the majority of the population will have been vaccinated and that the regulations will have changed substantially, allowing us to return to our beloved barn.”

“Mamma Mia!” is currently scheduled to be presented from Aug. 18 to Sept. 5. Previously purchased tickets will be automatically transferred to the corresponding performance.

In addition, numerous scenarios are being considered in the hopes of providing additional entertainment to the community this summer. An announcement regarding exact plans will be made once details have been solidified.

The Theatre By The Sea box office is currently closed. For any questions or concerns, patrons should send an email to boxoffice.tbts@gmail.com and someone will respond as quickly as possible.
