WEST PALM BEACH, FLA.: Palm Beach Dramaworks has announced that its 2020-21 season, scheduled to begin next month, as been postponed. The theatre will be all subscription funds for the season to the 2021-22 season.
“The safety and well-being of our staff, artists, and patrons is of paramount importance to us,” said producing artistic director William Hayes in a statement. “After processing all currently available information, we felt we had no choice but to make the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming season until the fall of 2021. We have come to the conclusion that we cannot operate the theatre until social distancing is no longer required; until there is a vaccine that is safe, effective, and readily available; and until our patrons feel safe to return. Of course, if that happens before October 2021, we will pivot and resume presenting the high-quality professional theatre that our audiences have come to expect.”
The company will be expanding its online presence, with new virtual programs to be announced at a later date.
