An update from JM Drama Alumni regarding COVID-19 (“coronavirus”): General Notice of Closure
The health, safety, and well-being of our guests, volunteers, renters, and personnel is JM Drama’s top priority and we are following the lead of Canadian public health authorities at this time.

We have made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining shows in our 19-20 presenting season. These shows include:
April 4 - Tim Louis
April 17 - Michael Jerome Brown
April 19 - Nota Bene Baroque
April 20 - Woody
April 24 & 25 - Kevin Ramessar
April 30 - Maggie & Me
May 1 - Top Pocket
May 8 - Joni NehRita
May 21 - VOC Silent Film
May 24 - Nota Bene Baroque

All tickets purchased for these events will be fully refunded by KW Tickets, our box office service providers, as soon as they can resume regular operations. Please send us an email at info@registrytheatre.com if you purchased tickets through us directly or are uncertain of your ticket purchase method. As an alternative to a refund, we are happy to issue charitable donation receipts to anyone who has purchased a ticket for a cancelled event.
In addition, all rental activity has been suspended until May 4, aligning with the City of Kitchener’s facility closures. Rental events will be responsible for establishing their own ticket refund policy. Please check our website, which will be updated as we receive information, or connect with the renter/presenting organization directly.

The Registry Theatre will be closed to the public until Monday, May 4, though personnel will still be checking email and working remotely. We are also suspending all new rental inquiries until such time as normal activities can resume.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these cancellations, but sincerely believe it is in our collective interest - for many reasons - to take a pause when the situation calls for it.


Thanks, and Take Care,
Sam
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.
