THEATRE 29 CANCELS SUMMER YOUTH PROGRAM, POSTPONES 2020 SEASON

The Theatre 29 Board of Directors met in a special session June 2, 2020 to discuss the reopening of businesses in the wake of the loosening of the Covid-19 stay-at-home orders.

With direction from the City of Twentynine Palms the Board reviewed the requirements for “Summer Camps” from the State Department of Public Health and the CDC.

Based on the mitigation required, it was determined that it would not be possible to continue with the 2020 program Summer Youth Theatre Program.

The Board also discussed the “Stage 4” reopening of Live-Theater venues and found there was still no way to determine the timeline for reopening. Because it was impossible to determine a starting date in time to properly plan and rehearse a show, it was decided to postpone the rest of the 2020 Season pending more clarification.

Season Ticket holders can contact the box office for a pro-rated refund (2 shows were presented before the Covid-19 shutdown). Patrons can also keep their credit towards the possible reopening of the theater this year, or towards the 2021 season. Patrons may also choose to simply donate the balance towards maintenance of the theatre while it is closed. Please contact the Box Office at [email protected] or leave a message at 760-361-4151.

The Board of Directors regrets having to take the action but recognizes their top priority is the health and safety of their patrons, volunteers, and community. They eagerly look forward to getting back to providing quality, family-oriented live theatre for the residents of the Morongo Basin.
