Greetings from The Beckwith Theatre Co!
As you know, the State of Michigan is beginning to lift some restrictions that were put in place to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. However, people and businesses are still being urged to act with special precautions to avoid another spike in cases. Here at the Beckwith, our board has been in continuous discussion regarding when we would feel comfortable inviting our patrons back into our seats without risking your health and safety. We are quite excited about the season that we had planned for 2020 but must balance that with our concern for you.
Because we do not want anyone to miss out on the great shows we had scheduled, we have decided to move our entire 2020 season to 2021. We plan to stage the same shows in 2021 that had been scheduled for this year. In this way, we give everyone the time and caution needed to feel thoroughly comfortable returning to the Beckwith.
If you are a season ticketholder, your 2020 season ticket will transfer to 2021. If you would like to discuss other options for your ticket(s), such as donating the funds to the theatre or receiving a refund, please contact us at 269.782.7653 or BeckwithTheatreMI@gmail.com.
As this year progresses and we continue to monitor the pandemic, we aspire to bring you a few special events if it seems safe to do so. In the meantime, we hope that you are doing well, and that we all continue to value the other members of our community and assist as we can.
