Theater Friends,

For the past five years The Lancaster Playhouse has been proud to bring comedy, drama, mystery, music and more to our Lancaster community. Performing such classics as Arsenic and Old Lace, Godspell and The Odd Couple, along with other shows like Nunsense, Clue the Musical and Crimes of the Heart – to name only a few! – The Lancaster Playhouse Board, its cast and crew looked eagerly toward the 2019 – 2020 and 2020 – 2021 seasons. Unfortunately, like many industries, the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to deeply impact the performing arts. We are all eager to return to the stage, but the most important challenge continues to be ensuring the health and safety of everyone in the audience, onstage and behind the scenes.

We are working not only with local health officials, but with other local performing arts organizations to ensure we are following best practices to create a safe environment when we are permitted to open. In the meantime, we as The Lancaster Playhouse Board look with promise toward the future. We are still active in our support of the arts in Lancaster and continue to make plans for a safe return to the theatre.


Our hearts go out to all of those whose health and livelihoods have been affected by this crisis. We hope that you and yours are staying safe and healthy. Remember that we are all in this together and now, more than ever, we need to look out for one another.


Stay well!

The Lancaster Playhouse Board
