ACTUALLY, Educational Programming, Off the Hill and Off the Grid Series Cancelled at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park

PIP_logoPerformance Update

The CDC has recommended banning gatherings of 50 or more in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Our first priority is to ensure the safety of our patrons, artists, staff and the general public. Unfortunately, this means all upcoming performances of Destiny of Desire and Actually have now been cancelled. While it breaks our heart, community health and well-being is of the utmost importance in this extraordinary time.

As you may or may not know, the Playhouse is a non-profit organization. Though we do earn money from ticket sales, we also rely on the generosity of people like you. Please consider transferring your ticket to a tax-deductible donation to support us in this uncertain time, and help get the theatre back up-and-running when that time comes. We truly appreciate your consideration.

If you have a ticket to a cancelled performance, you can:

  • Donate your ticket and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value
  • Credit your ticket value toward a future performance
  • Credit your ticket value toward a 2020-21 subscription
  • Refund your ticket price

For the safety of our staff, the Box Office is running with a limited crew or working remotely. Please submit your ticket requests through the forms linked by show below. You will receive a confirmation via email once your request has been completed. If you’d like a call, please include that in the request box at the bottom of the form, and a Patron Services staff member will contact you within 10 days.

Future Performances
We are currently investigating the possibility of postponing Agatha Christie’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS and BECOMING DR. RUTH until the summer. Please be patient and bear with us until we are able to determine the feasibility of this plan. If we find this isn’t possible and the shows are cancelled, you’ll have the same options for your tickets as listed above. We respectfully ask that you hold off on these requests for now. Thank you for your support and patience during this extraordinary time.

Education Programming Update
We’ve also decided to exercise caution and cancel all Off the Grid and Off the Hill performances, as well as acting classes for the remainder of the season — even though these performances are under the governor’s guideline. People with tickets to these programs and performances have been contacted separately to take care of their tickets.

Please check back for information and updates.
