Officials at Cortland Repertory Theatre released an updated list of schedule changes regarding their Spring and Summer production seasons.
At this time, the remainder of their Spring Season has been either cancelled or postponed, however most shows and events have been rescheduled for the fall season.
The following changes have posted so far:
- “Well Strung”, scheduled for April 18, has been rescheduled to Sept 12.
- “How Sweet It Is: Steve Leslie sings James Taylor” is now scheduled for Sept 26.
- Comedian Brad Zimmerman’s “My Rise to the Middle” is scheduled for Oct. 3.
- Our annual Fiber Festival is still scheduled at the Pavilion for Oct 10 & 11.
- Jazz pianist Judy Carmichael, previously scheduled for May 2, has been rescheduled to Oct 10.
- Comedian Tim Walkoe’s night of comedy is now scheduled for Nov 7.
- Two performances of our fund raiser Mystery Dinner Theatre will be held: Saturday, Nov 14 in the evening and Sunday, Nov 15 as a matinee. (We are not sure at this point if it will be the same play as was performed for one show in March, or a different selection. Stay tuned!)
- “Close to you: The Music of the Carpenters” scheduled for April 25 has been rescheduled, for two performances on November 21.
CRT is still planning our “Photos with Santa” weekend on Dec 5 & 6.
- “Third Thursday Trivia” is scheduled for Sept 17, Oct 15 and Nov 19.
- Friday Night Karaoke is scheduled for Oct 2 and Nov 6, with some other possible dates to be determined..
Those who have purchased tickets for any of these “Spring-Now-Fall” shows now have the following options:
-Move your ticket for the same event on the new rescheduled date.
-Allow your ticket purchase to become a donation to CRT.
-Exchange your ticket to another event at CRT Downtown
Producing Artistic Director Kerby Thompson also said full refunds will be allowed under extreme circumstances, but encouraged patrons to “consider the dire straits that CRT will undoubtedly be experiencing as this health crisis continues, and chose one of the first three options.”
Thompson also says the organization is working on confirming a couple more events, while exploring options for its Weekend Youth Classes.
“CRT is continuing to follow the required state regulations, and have cut back on our staff,” Thompson said. “Those staff members who remain are working from home. PLEASE – be patient with us as we begin to address everyone’s ticket requests and changes.”
To inform CRT of your preference regarding tickets purchased for these shows, Thompson advised to do one of the following:
- Email Business Manager Barclay Diamond at BDiamond@CortlandRep.org. Please type SPRING TICKET REQUEST in the Subject line, and include your mailing address and phone number along with your request.
- Wait for us to call you. As soon as we are able, we will be calling everyone who has purchased a spring ticket if we do not receive an email request.
- As we are not in the office every day and our voice message inbox could easily become overloaded quickly, please try to avoid calling for these requests.
General information questions can be called in or emailed to: Info@CortlandRep.org.
As far as the Summer Season is concerned, Thompson said the following:
“Finally – As mentioned, we are continuing to monitor the health situation and how it will relate to our summer season. Your health and well being, as well as that of our staff, actors, technicians, musicians and production teams are our Number 1 priority. Decisions with regards to our summer productions will be made with those priorities in mind, and once we know more, we will let you know as soon as possible.
Again, we thank you for your patience, and wish you all the best in this challenging time. We, as a community, will get through this by working together!
Please stay healthy, stay safe, stay sane.
Producing Artistic Director”
