Racine Theatre Guild COVID-19 Updates

Updated 4/16/20

We hope you are staying safe and healthy in our time apart. It is an odd feeling not to be at the Racine Theatre Guild every day with the flurry of activities from show preparations. We have been hoping to get more insights for when we can all gather and celebrate theatre once again, but we have realized we need to make plans regarding our summer programming.
 
Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the first performance of our 2020/2021 Season, Bye Bye Birdie, scheduled to run July 17 – July 26, 2020. With the cancelation of this musical, it will give us more flexibility for rescheduling our postponed shows that have already been cast and were in rehearsal before our temporary closure. Performances that will be rescheduled are:
 
  • Jean’s Jazz: Donna Woodall Trio & Ivy Ford Band – originally scheduled for March 21
  • Akeelah and the Bee – originally scheduled for March 27 – April 5
  • Jean’s Jazz: Eric Jacobsen Quintet – originally scheduled for April 11
  • Signature Spotlight: The Golden Age of Broadway – originally scheduled for April 18
  • Mamma Mia! – originally scheduled for May 8 – 24
 
We know many of you were looking forward to the Bye Bye Birdie performance, but hope to answer any additional questions here:
 
I renewed my season tickets and included Bye Bye Birdie in my purchase. Will I get a refund?
  • Yes, our box office will be contacting you regarding your refund for Bye Bye Birdie. You also have the option of donating the cost of your tickets back to the Racine Theatre Guild.
 
Is my season ticket renewal form still due by May 31?
  • Due to the shifting timeline of when we may be allowed to reopen, our season ticket renewal deadline has
    been extended until June 30. Individual tickets for next year’s season will go on sale August 1.
When will you reschedule postponed shows?
  • We are following recommendations and orders from local, state, and national government officials. Once we have more information on when we can reopen and gather, we will begin the process of setting rescheduled dates.
 
Will I still be able to use my flex passes for the 2019/2020 season?
  • Our 82nd Season Flex Passes list June 30, 2020 as their expiration date. However, with the postponed performances, your flex passes will still be valid for both Akeelah and the Bee and Mamma Mia! when they are rescheduled even if it is after the expiration date.
 
Who can I contact with questions?
  • Although the Racine Theatre Guild is temporarily closed, email, mail, and phone calls will be answered throughout the week. Call (262) 633-4218 with any questions or for more information.
 
Thank you for your continued support and we cannot wait to welcome you all back to the theatre soon!
