Announcement: 20-21 Season

In the normal course of things, The Registry Theatre would be announcing a fabulous lineup of artists for the 20-21 season - our 20th anniversary of presenting!

But these are not normal times and, like so many other things, we'll be pausing our presenting activities until we can ensure a safe experience for all our artists, audiences, crew, and volunteers.

At this point we can confidently say there will be no public events until February of 2021, a time frame that may be extended as we assess the situation and monitor advice from public health officials.

In the meantime, we will continue to work with local artists who will use the space in small groups for rehearsals, residencies, film or photo shoots, and meetings. We also anticipate some upgrades to our online capacities that will allow for live streaming - so keep your eyes peeled for some Live (Streamed) @ The Registry events!

We wish everyone the best in these complicated times, and urge you all to stay safe!

Beginning Tuesday August 4, The Registry Theatre will begin accepting rental inquiries for uses that do not include a publicly-attended event, and involve no more than 20 people inside the facility. If you are interested in booking a rehearsal, film/photo shoot, livestream event, studio-style creative development, meetings, or similar uses, please contact us at operations@registrytheatre.com.

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Prevention measures include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid shaking hands; do the elbow bump or the toe tap.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Stay home when you are ill (a fever of 100°F or 38°C). If you do have a fever, do not go to the hospital; instead contact Public Health or your GP.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
