We Can’t Wait to see You in the Fall!   Update to Century Church Theatre patrons (January 2021)

These past months have been challenging for all of us as we confront the impact of COVID-19 especially as it pertains to the operation of local community theatres. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you – our loyal audience members – for all the support and patience you have shown us as we work through these most difficult times. Our Board of Directors from the Erin Arts Foundation continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our membership and our audience members. Delaying our return until the Fall will effectively afford us the necessary time required to ensure all health and safety protocols and measures are in place for the anticipated return of live theatre here at Century Church Theatre later this year.

The current season here at Century Church Theatre will tentatively be adjusted as follows:

  • Due to the current provincial lockdown and stay-at-home order, we plan to open again in September with the hilarious comedy – Jack of Diamonds followed by the musical talents of The Muir Family and Bob Milne in concert and the Pantomime Dick Whittington and His Cat which opens in November
  • The suspenseful thrillers – To Die For and The 39 Steps are now postponed until 2022
  • We will communicate any changes to this schedule, should they become necessary, to our patrons via our website and database. We encourage you to share this information with friends and family who may not have access to email or the Internet.

The Box Office will also remain open in the meantime to assist you in planning for our upcoming productions…we can be reached at (519) 855-4586 from 9:00-9:00 each day. We thank you once again for your ongoing support of the Arts and your understanding and patience in the days and months ahead as we diligently work “behind-the-scenes” to ensure the safe return of live theatre performances here at Century Church Theatre for audience members like you!
