added shows, livestreams, fresh coffee and we’re hiring!

After finishing up our massive and largely sold out January, we raced out of the gates into February and before we knew it… circuit breaker lockdown. Our artists and community safety is our number one priority so we jumped sideways, took a deep breath, shuffled a bit and were ready to roll again.

We’re Probably Really Really Happy Right Now was postponed by one week, and enjoyed a sold-out season over the last two weeks.

Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody was pushed back a week as a result, with more shows added to due increasing demand before first previews this weekend.

Jungle Bungle‘s first week was unfortunately cancelled as a result of the scheduling changes, but we have worked with the artists to adapt to the challenge, introducing livestreamed performances in the second week of its April season to reach as many families as possible.

We would like to thank everyone who had their ticket transferred for their patience and understanding while we navigated the changes in our schedule.
