COVID 19 Precautions

September 2020

Passage Theatre staff and Trustee Board, recognizing that the COVID-19 situation is a fluid and evolving health crisis that will continue to disrupt not only Passage’s 2020-2021 season but all facets of public life in America, formed an ad hoc corona virus committee in March. This committee continues to meet regularly monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 situation. 

While we want to see the Playhouse full once more, Passage is committed to doing everything in our power to protect the health of our community.

Although we accept that a time may come when it is prudent to cancel the 2020-21 in-person season entirely, we deeply believe that theatre in Trenton makes an important contribution to our community and therefore planning an entirely dark season is not a viable option.

Artistic Director Ryanne Domingues has developed an exciting 2020-2021 season beginning with varied and entirely virtual programming from September to January including virtual staged readings, interviews with theatre professionals, and children’s events. 

Passage will return to the Playhouse for three productions in the spring. Passage will be monitoring the situation closely and stands ready to replace spring’s in-person performances with engaging online programming if that becomes the necessary decision. Passage has identified these decision points already and Ryanne Domingues has programmed virtual replacement works that are ready to go should the need arise. 

As we get nearer to our in-person events we will share detailed plans for enhancements to audience safety and for increased Playhouse cleaning. 

Our 2020-2021 programming is based upon the themes of CONNECTION and CARE GIVING. And whether our connection with you is virtual or in-person we invite you to be part of a season that encourages understanding and empathy in our community
