A Note from K and E Theater Group regarding our 2020 Season
Dear K and E Theater Group Community:
Everyone at K and E Theater Group hopes that you and your loved ones are doing well during these very unprecedented times – taking care of yourselves and your families. As we continue to navigate the public health challenges these next couple of months, the Board of Directors have committed to ensure our audiences are aware of some of the changes to our season we hoped to bring.
After initially postponing our April run of Altar Boyz, due to the pandemic, we had hoped to present the show sometime late this summer. However, we have made the difficult decision of cancelling the run of this super fun, energetic production. We thank our talented Boyz, musicians and crew for their dedication and hard work during the rehearsal process, and are sad we couldn’t RAISE THE PRAISE with our boy band in Northampton.
Instead of bringing you some magical moments this summer, we look forward to bringing our fundraising concert When You Wish to Northampton Center for the Arts, February 12 & 13, 2021.
This October, we were excited to bring you Kander & Ebb’s masterpiece Cabaret; however, due to uncertainties industry-wide about how we keep our audiences, performers and crew alike safe and healthy, and in compliance with local regulations, we will be postponing this production. Cabaret will now be presented at Northampton Center for the Arts, April 16-18 & 22-24, 2021, with casting to be announced shortly.
We invite you to our supersized Season Two entitled, By Invitation Only. It begins with When You Wish in February 2021 and our spring mainstage production of Cabaret in April 2021. We will also be announcing our summer and fall 2021 mainstage productions shortly. Additionally, as we wished to this year, we will be ending the season with Believe: A Holiday Celebration in December.
K and E Theater Group is staying creative in 2020 with its summer-long Local Spotlight Series, hosted by Artistic Director Eddie Zitka. The series, which started on May 26th, shines the spotlight on many members of the theater community with interviews and performance every Tuesday and Friday at 7:00 PM. You can see these episodes on our Facebook page, IGTV, or on our YouTube channel. We have a line-up planned of different people from the Pioneer Valley and beyond to talk about their theater experiences. We hope to see you in the spotlight!
