Response to COVID-19

On behalf of the Centerstage Board of Directors and our staff, I want to reach out to the patrons of Centerstage in the face of the COVID-19 epidemic. The health and safety of Centerstage Theatre’s staff, artists, volunteers, and audiences remains our top priority. This is why we have decided to postpone the production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and our May 2nd fundraiser, Celebrate Centerstage, to later dates. This was an extremely difficult announcement for us to make as we love all the plays and programs we produce and love seeing each and every one of you come through the doors of the theatre.  If conditions have been deemed safe, our goal is to resume normal operations in May with the performance of The Importance of Being Earnest.  We are asking all ticket-holders for patience as we explore every option to bring you the remaining shows and events we had planned for this season.  We will let you know when we have more information to share.

Like many nonprofit theatres across the country, Centerstage is facing a time of difficulty and uncertainty. The suspension of various public events due to the epidemic has very real financial consequences for theatres and theatre artists. Centerstage operates on a very limited budget, with all of our revenue going to pay staff, artists, keep the lights on, and bring quality live theatre to the people and communities of Western Washington.  A major disruption like this one is detrimental to our long-term survival. 

Centerstage Theatre needs your support now more than ever as we work to recover the losses experienced from these necessary programming decisions.  Your gift today of any amount will help sustain us through this difficult time.  We know that this is an unusual ask but these are unusual times.

We are thankful to have such generous audiences and supporters in all of you and hope that you and your loved ones stay safe through this difficult time.  Thank you for your continued support of Centerstage. We are all in this together and look forward to welcoming you back to the Knutzen Family Theatre very soon.  Your patience and support is appreciated as we navigate this unprecedented situation.  Please keep an eye on our website and our Facebook page for forthcoming details.

Thank you for your kindness and care,

Michael Brugato

President, Board of Directors
