2021 is here, and with it comes the hope and promise of new beginnings. Like all theaters, Eventide struggled to survive this past year, but we persevered and continued to reach out and connect with you – our friends, neighbors, members, and supporters. Through a variety of programs, we never stopped bringing you our artists and writers, through Zoom and Facebook.
With this new year comes our renewed dedication to present original works and fresh faces on our stage in all the ways we can, some traditional, some new and innovative, some in-person, some virtual.
We’re optimistic that soon we’ll be welcoming you back our Gertrude Lawrence Stage in Dennis Village, but until we’re able to gather in person safely, we intend to avoid the 2020 heartbreak of cancellations even if that means moving our shows outside or producing them online. We are committing to you now that we will present our season in its entirety as advertised. To do this, we will be nimble and creative, with the first half of our season being offered exclusively online, with content created and directed with that purpose in mind. You will see our actors and staging in fresh and inventive ways and we invite you to join us on the journey.
In addition to our just announced “show must go on” theatrical season, we’ll continue to present Eventide Tales, our very popular series of short stories read by local actors. as well as other creative programming throughout the year.
To our members and patrons, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you for all of your support and encouragement this past year. Your positive kind words and donations have gone a long way to helping us continue to move forward, and for those of you who are not yet Eventide members, we would love to have you join us in 2021!
– Chris Edwards, Artistic Director
