Theatre@First is committed to playing our part to support the well-being of our community in these times of social distancing. Our leadership continues to monitor the coronavirus situation and make decisions based first and foremost on the health and safety of our actors and production staff. We're excited about what we have planned for 2020 and hope to be able to bring you, our audience, entertaining and thought-provoking live theatre in some form as the year rolls on, but we absolutely will not "reopen for business" until it is safe to do so.
Just because we can't put on traditional shows in traditional spaces, that doesn't mean we're sitting on our heels! We've got plenty of ideas in the works for ways to keep the arts alive in Somerville and beyond. We're looking into ways to live-stream our performances. Our reading groups, which once might have met in someone's living room, are now happening over video conferencing. We're doing everything we can to prepare for the point at which we will be able to put on live productions again. And of course, the organization rolls on, preparing for our annual election cycle and keeping the proverbial lights on.
We can't wait until we're able to gather again to bring you the unique experience of live theatre, but we hope you'll come along and explore the possibilities that are open to us now. As always, please watch this website as well as our social media for the latest updates.
