Quick Reference Guide for Taproot’s Re-Opening:
The Rescheduled 2020 Season:
We will open our doors again this fall with Babette’s Feast (planned opening November 12, 2021)!
In January of 2022 we will continue to fulfill the postponed season with See How They Run (planned opening January 28, 2022).
The postponed offerings will conclude with the musical The Spitfire Grill (planned opening March 25, 2022).
If you currently hold a ticket for any of these plays, that ticket will be honored. Current ticket holders will receive a letter and email in September with additional ticketing information and instructions.
Additional tickets for these plays will be available closer to opening night and dependent on mandated capacity restrictions.
The Canceled Show from 2020:
The final title from the postponed 2020 season (The Old Man and The Old Moon) is the only show that will not be produced.
If you still hold tickets to a canceled performance those can be exchanged to either See How They Run or The Spitfire Grill or donated back to the theatre (ticket donations are tax deductible).
Any tickets not already donated or exchanged into another performance by December 15, 2021 will be automatically donated back to the theatre.
The 2022 Mini Season:
We are excited to announce that our 2022 Jewell Mainstage Season,Are You Ready to Play? will begin in May of 2022 and will be a 3-play “mini season”. (As in the past, Christmas will be announced later in the year.)
Subscription renewals for the 2022 mini season will begin in March 2022. New subscriptions and single ticket sales will follow.
The mini season opens with Larry Shue’s The Nerd (planned opening May 20, 2022).
Next up is the imaginative and musical Peter and the Starcatcher based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson(planned opening July 15, 2022).
The season concludes with Sankofa and the Power of Three (working title), commissioned by Taproot from Be Russell, Sarah Russell, and Faith Bennett Russell, along with playwright Gin Hammond (planned opening September 23, 2022).
Please refrain from calling or emailing the box office until after you receive the email or letter in September with further instructions. We wish we could provide you more service sooner, but we are in the process of hiring and training a new box office staff. Until September we only have one part time person in the box office.
Anyone with tickets on account to Babette’s Feast, See How They Run and The Spitfire Grill will be guaranteed seats to those productions. Specific seating assignments or other attendance requirements will be sent out closer to each production.
Additional tickets will be available closer to each play’s opening date and dependent on the most recently mandated capacity restrictions.
