Upcoming Lionheart Events
2020 Season Update from the Lionheart Theatre Company (Date: 7/27/2020)
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lionheart Theatre Company has made the difficult decision to cancel our three remaining main stage Lionheart productions for our 2020 season. Therefore, September’s “Dearly Departed,” November’s “The Good Doctor” and December’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” are all officially cancelled for the 2020 season. Due to social distancing protocols, Lionheart has decided that for the safety of actors and crew members, that it would be risky to move forward with productions with larger casts this year.
Lionheart intends to reschedule “Dearly Departed” for May 2021. If you have already purchased tickets for “Dearly Departed,” you will be contacted by Lionheart’s Box Office regarding refunds on your advance ticket purchase.
*Updated Lionheart Schedule Through End of the Year: Our Plan Moving Forward
Although we’ve had to cancel our originally scheduled 2020 season, we want to assure our patrons, performers, crew members and volunteers that Lionheart is still here and we intend to still entertain you. We’re just going to do it a little differently as we navigate this pandemic.
This summer, Lionheart has already been hosting staged readings with smaller casts. Audiences for these readings are capped at 25 max, with audience members distanced throughout the theatre. We plan to continue this model throughout the rest of 2020 by offering readings, limited-run productions with smaller casts, classes and other programming that can be produced for a smaller audience safely and comfortably.
We’d also like to remind everyone that Lionheart is still asking all patrons attending any upcoming events to wear a mask upon entering the theatre. Lionheart will continue to practice our stringent cleaning inside all theatre and common spaces and will provide hand sanitizer for patron use.
Our Board of Directors and Staff are monitoring COVID-19 updates carefully and will make further adjustments to our schedule if needed as the situation unfolds.
Please stay safe and we hope to see you soon at the theatre as we explore the “new normal” of live theatre. As always we appreciate your support.
