Update from Capital Stage

We want to bring you up to date about what’s going on at Capital Stage, what our future has in store, and how you can support our Hope Defiant season.
What’s Going On With THE GREAT LEAP?
We are sorry to say that we must cancel our upcoming production of THE GREAT LEAP. There is no safe way for us to produce the play at this time. We hope to bring back Lauren Yee's play in our 2021/22 season.

You have several options if you have already purchased tickets to this show. You can request your tickets be converted into a donation. The donation of your tickets is a great help in these difficult times. Other options include converting your tickets to a gift certificate to a future performance, or receive a refund.

Please contact us prior to July 31, 2020 to let us know how to process cancellation of your subscription tickets for cancelled performances. Because of the volume of requests, we ask that you email your response to boxoffice@capstage.org. We appreciate your patience at this time.
You Announced Your 2020/21 Season – Now What?
Our primary concern is to ensure the health and well-being of our patrons, artists and staff. The launch of our 2020/21 season is a promise to our patrons that we will serve the community again after it is deemed safe to reopen. Dates and titles might be subject to change because of the pandemic. Please be assured that if you have subscribed to our 2020/21 season, our intention is to give you a full season of bold, thought provoking theatre.

Your purchase of a 2020/21 subscription is an investment in Capital Stage.
Will You Remove Seats To Maintain Physical Distance?
We are in the process of securing an alternative performance space which will allow audience members to social distance while enjoying a performance. While we are working out the myriad of details and considerations, please be assured that your safety is our primary importance.
What Measures Will You Take To Keep Audiences Safe?
Capital Stage will comply with all local requirements for public assembly and with CDC recommendations that pertain to areas of public assembly. Our top priority is to ensure you feel safe and comfortable wherever we perform.
What If I Renew Now But Decide Later I Don’t Feel Safe?
It is our intention to deliver the entire 6 show season once it is safe to do so, but we appreciate your understanding and flexibility if changes need to be made to ensure your safety. If we find we need to postpone or cancel a production due to safety issues, we will provide options at that time on how to manage your tickets.

For those who still feel unsafe to attend the theatre in person, we are working on providing access, on a limited basis, to a streaming version of the productions, at no additional cost. More information will be made available as options further develop.
Will We Be Hearing From Capital Stage Again?
We are looking for alternative ways to bring our stories to you – now more than ever we need to tell these stories in the theatre.

Please be on the lookout for a patron survey in the upcoming days. We want to hear from you to better understand how you are feeling about returning to the theatre.
If I Don’t Renew For The 2020/21 Season, Will I Lose My Seats?
We know that many of our subscribers value their seats. The health and survival of our organization is very much dependent on the support of our community. Our subscriptions account for a large percentage of our income. We encourage you to renew to not only retain your current seats, but to help us ensure all of our seats will be available for future seasons. And of course you can request a refund at any time.

Please understand that until we resume full operations there may be a need to have general admission seating for performances, especially if we offer those performances in a new space. And be assured that people needing accessible seating will be accommodated. When we return to Capital Stage, you will retain your assigned seats.
Thank you so much for your patience and all your support. We are working hard to get back to our stage when we can all be safe together.
