“After more than a year of uncertainties and constant ‘pivoting’, we are remaining flexible with the 2021-2022 Season”, says Gina Neuerer. chair of music, theatre & dance. “Last season we continuously adjusted and were able to produce 9 performances including a live, on stage production of Puffs, by Matt Cox in May.”

“While the EMERGENCE of theatre everywhere  is fantastic, we acknowledge that the pandemic is not over so will continue to ‘pivot’ whenever necessary to ensure safety.”

“I’m extremely proud of our students, staff and faculty who rose to the challenges of everything from rehearsals via Zoom to performing on stage both socially distanced and in masks. We learned to Zoom, film and stream, we created new works and explored unique opportunities in order to keep performance alive.We’re grateful for this opportunity to forge ahead and are ready to tackle whatever is sent our way, to preserve the essential role of the arts in society.”

Ticket information will be available in September at: www.sinclair.edu/tickets, allowing time for tailoring of reserved seating to the most current guidelines at showtime.
