Cancellation of Remaining Shows in 2020

Dear Barley Sheaf Family,

Now that summer has arrived, we wanted to provide an update. At our most recent board meeting we discussed what the rest of the year might look like for Barley Sheaf. The board has decided to cancel the remainder of our performances for 2020. This decision was based on the safety of our members, the uncertainty of fall, and the small size of our theater. We are heartbroken to have to extend this loss of togetherness but are thankful for social media that helps us stay connected.

We are hopeful that we will be able to re-open in 2021 with some wonderful shows that we already have planned. In the meantime, we are working hard to ensure that, when we re-open, we will be making active efforts to select shows that uplift the voices of Black and Brown people. Diversity in our community has been sorely lacking; we recognize that, and we are actively working to correct it. We are committing to featuring more directors and actors of color in our productions, and we also recognize the need to actively recruit more Black and Brown voices to join our board of directors. We can and will do better.

We are so grateful for all of our donors during this difficult time. Your generosity and support is helping us to prepare for an unforgettable reunion.

Please continue to stay well. Care for each other and don't forget to care for yourselves.


The Barley Sheaf Board of Directors
