A MESSAGE ABOUT COVID-19 FROM THE ISLAND SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL


Come what come may, time and the hour runs through the roughest day
- Macbeth

At Island Shakespeare Festival, we take great pride in our community. This means that not only do we strive to provide high-quality theater to our audiences, but that we also consider the health and well-being of all those who are associated with ISF. As the COVID-19 epidemic continues to impact our lives and cast a shadow of uncertainty throughout society, we have grappled with the issue of how to most responsibly proceed with plans for our upcoming 2020 summer season.

At present, we want you to know that we are hoping to move forward with our season as planned (Love’s Labours Lost, Titus Andronicus, and Cyrano de Bergerac). We are optimistic that we can do so, however we are continually re-evaluating our options as the situation evolves to ensure the safety of our audience and our company. Our season does not begin until July 9. This provides us with ample time to respond to the rapid changes in the epidemic. Should we need to alter our production format or cancel performances, we’ll notify you ASAP of such changes.

ISF staff, crew, actors, directors, and artistic associates strongly believe in the power of theater to bring a community together, to enlighten, to laugh, to grieve, and to reflect. We take our responsibility to serve our community very seriously and hope to be able to provide you with the kind of outstanding theater experience that you’ve come to expect from us. As we all confront these “roughest days” together, we know that we will find our strength in partnership with all of you.
