We had hoped to bring A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION back to Parrish Auditorium this December, but had to make the necessary decision to cancel the live event for the safety and wellbeing of our community.

While we were not able to gather together in person for our 2020 season, we are excited to announce on demand highlights from the holiday spectacular featuring the Merit Company Orchestra, Chorale, and Children’s Choir.

2020 Season Update from Merit Theatre Company

MTC_logoWe hope that you are staying safe and healthy! Like you, we at Merit have been monitoring the developments surrounding COVID-19 with growing concerns. In light of the current situation, the decision has been made to postpone JANE EYRE until summer 2021.

While this has been a difficult, though necessary, decision, we are already discussing other ideas and options to still bring you quality, inspiring entertainment this year without compromising the safety and health of our patrons and artists. Stay tuned for updates about summer and fall, as we will continue to keep you informed. We are also excited to announce that, as long as it is possible, our concert A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION will return to Parrish Auditorium in Hamilton, OH, this December!

We are eager to explore new opportunities and discover creative ways to serve our community during this time. Thank you for your continued support. Stay well!
