Cue: Dramatic Pause
As we celebrate this World Theatre Day and navigate a new normal, you can be sure that A2CT is working hard behind the scenes to find ways to keep our artists and audiences and friends connected with our theatre while our doors are temporarily closed. Here's what you can look forward to in the coming weeks:
- Weekly social media challenges where you'll get to share clips and photos and memories, and see the same from other A2CT friends, using the hashtags #A2CTDramaticPause and #A2CTatHome
- An interim season we're calling Theatre in the Ether, which will bring you virtual performances from some of our incredible cast members, kicking off in April with a stream of our most recent Junior Theatre show, The Wizard of Oz.
- The long-awaited confirmation of our 2020-2021 season! We know you've been waiting for it, but we've had to make some tweaks due to current circumstances. We promise not to keep you waiting too much longer!
Thank you so much for your support, we can't wait to see you again, but for now, enjoy our Dramatic Pause with some footage of our crazy talented cast of Godspell at their final rehearsal:
Be safe, be well, be kind.

A2CT Response to COVID-19
Dear A2CT Patrons,
Due to recent developments regarding the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, Ann Arbor Civic Theatre is suspending operations and postponing the remainder of our 2019-2020 season indefinitely. This includes all performances, rehearsals, auditions, rentals, workshops, and other activities, effective immediately. Additionally, office hours are suspended, though email will be checked daily Monday-Friday.
We will reevaluate as further developments on the COVID-19 situation occur and make announcements as necessary.
This is not a decision I or the Board of Directors took lightly. However, after reviewing all the information provided by the WHO, CDC, and state and local health departments, as well as the national and state declarations of emergency, we feel it is in the best interest of our community to do this. We join many other entertainment organizations in taking this extreme step, not only to protect our community, but to encourage social distancing in general and flatten the curve.
Regarding ticket refunds for those who have purchased tickets, the theatre will be in contact with patrons in the coming weeks and refunds will be offered. Please allow us time to sort this out. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.
Any patrons who would like to consider their ticket purchases as a donation would be appreciated.This decision not only comes with emotional repercussions, but financial ones as well for this organization.
Ultimately, however, the safety of our patrons, members and the broader community at large is our top priority.
