IVORYTON — (from a press release) On March 18, 2020, The Ivoryton Playhouse planned to open its doors for the start of a whole new season but the universe had other plans. The Playhouse has been closed down by the state and the virus since March 16, and waiting to hear if they may be able to produce a limited season in the summer or fall.

Heading into summer with the likelihood of producing growing slimmer every day, the Playhouse has made the difficult decision to cancel their 2020 season. If the world has changed enough for them to produce next year, then they will attempt 2020 Part 2 and hope to be able to produce everything they were prevented from producing this year – with bells on!

The Ivoryton Playhouse has been producing theatre for 90 years. The only years it went dark were during the Second World War and in 1977 when the future of the theatre hung in the balance and it was almost knocked down to make way for a drug store. But it has survived, through all of these challenges, and is confident of its return – stronger and enriched by this unprecedented experience.

All ticket holders will be contacted over the next couple of weeks. For more information, email

    We have enjoyed some remarkable productions in that little theater. We really hope that a return to “normalcy” allows, if at all possible, a production or two in the fall. Otherwise, “Go Jacquie 2021”!

    I’m wondering about refunds for two plays which have been cancelled. “The Mouse Trap” on 11/8 @ 2:00 p.m. and “Flashdance” on 7/12 @ 2:00 p.m. Have been waiting to hear from you.
