We are Postponing our May Opening

Dear Friends,

In light of the continuing global health crisis The Colonial Theatre will postpone its traditional early May season opening. We will re-open when our state public health professionals deem it is safe. We have a full schedule of events planned and are ready to go whenever it is possible, but obviously the health of our community, volunteers and staff is our utmost concern. I also would like to take this opportunity offer a very sincere thank you to all of our members and contributors who have exceeded expectations and continued to support us during these uncertain times.

The Colonial Theatre was originally scheduled to open for the season May 2 with its first LIVE! At The Colonial performance with Rickie Lee Jones on May 16. Rickie Lee has been rescheduled for Sunday, Sept. 27. Ticket buyers for this or any Colonial event can rest assured that their purchase price will be fully refunded in the event of further cancellations or postponements. Tickets purchased for a show that has been rescheduled will be automatically honored for the new date or refunded should you be unable to attend.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Stay safe, stay healthy and stay tuned. 

Stephen Dignazio, Executive Director

Dear Friends of The Colonial,

Like most of you I feel pretty unsure about what is going on and have been trying to think about what to say about the spot we’re all in. As we navigate these uncharted waters we’ll be preparing for a variety of circumstances including a temporary closure of the Theatre, as well as proceeding with our regular season. To that end, we will continue to provide updates including Live! Show announcements. Please note that in the event of any cancellations we will refund all ticket purchases.

Of course, our priority is the health and safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers and community. As this unprecedented health event continues to unfold, we are doing everything we can to keep our community safe and, to the best of our ability, plan for the future. Like so many institutions all we can do is wait and monitor this rapidly changing situation.

The strength of The Colonial community is in its diversity. And while this situation is an inconvenience for all of us, to many it is an occasion of significant financial and emotional hardship, and to some it is life threatening. Please check in on your neighbors and offer help: run an errand, drop off a meal, or simply have a conversation. Support those organizations that are offering assistance to those of us who have been caught unprepared, like food pantries and community meals. Many small businesses, especially in the hospitality sector, are looking at a rocky few months. Perhaps it would be a good time to buy a gift certificate? The more we support our neighbors and local businesses the stronger, and healthier, our community will be.

And take this opportunity to do something for yourself. For many it may be getting more walking in, finishing up a project around the house, or dare I say it, reading! Myself, I’ve been cooking. Checking out new recipes and revisiting some old favorites. I did the latter the other night when I had an urge for some traditional American comfort food—spaghetti and meatballs!

Seriously, we’re in this together, let’s stick together.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay tuned.

Stephen Dignazio
