Giving Tuesday Announcement
GivingTuesday is the international day of generosity happening on November 30, 2021 and The Newtowne Players has been a part of this amazing global tradition for the past several years. This is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
NTP has used the funds from past GivingTuesday donations for various projects around the theater and for needed materials to continue to bring live theater to our stage. Our theater strives to provide quality theater to St. Mary’s County, as well as do outreach projects and create partnerships with our local schools and other organizations.
At a time when we are all still experiencing the impact of the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
Please consider giving to The Newtowne Players this GivingTuesday so that we can continue to bring quality theater to our stage and provide outreach to our schools & community. Any amount helps and we appreciate your generosity and support so much!!
Ready to Open our Doors - COVID protocols
Throughout the last 18 months, The Newtowne Players offered a variety of theatre performances presented in new and creative formats to keep its members and the community at large engaged and entertained. Through it all, the ultimate goal was to get back on our stage to present live theatre performances for our community.
On September 10, 2021, The Newtowne Players is bringing its first indoor performance to the stage since the onset of the pandemic - A Night on Broadway. We could not be more excited to have our theatre space once again filled with family, friends, and our community.
As we prepare to open our doors for indoor performances, we put the health and safety of everyone in our space as our utmost priority. The Newtowne Players will implement the following COVID protocols:
But what about masks? Following the guidance and direction of both the St. Mary’s County Health Department (SMCHD) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), while the community transmission rate is high, meaning more than 100 weekly cases per 100,000 residents:
While our new HVAC system provides consistent ventilation and air circulation, our space and the nature of audience seating during a performance is close and sustained. We appreciate the full cooperation of our patrons as we prepare to get back to the business of entertaining.
If you have already purchased a ticket for the upcoming show and you are uncomfortable with masking requirements you may opt to receive a credit in the form of a gift card that will be good for any future performance of your choice. Please reach out to the Front of House Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to monitor transmission rates on a show-by-show basis and will communicate with our patrons via our website, social media and email when changes to our protocols take effect.
Thank you for supporting the Newtowne Players, and we look forward to bringing our shows to life on our stage. We hope to see you soon!
