From the Bennington Performing Arts Center – Home of Oldcastle Theatre Company:

Your health and safety have always been of utmost importance to us and we want to be proactive in serving you, especially in light of global concerns regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). We want to emphasize that we are taking every possible precaution. We are following the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local and state health authorities, to safeguard the health and well-being of our entire community including our audiences, volunteers, employees and performers.

Our company acknowledges and shares the public’s concerns about protecting against the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of staff and patrons are the top priorities. We have taken the recommended steps to make sure we maintain a contamination free environment for any visitors and patrons to our facilities.

The remaining events for March have been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date:

  • March 21 – AAUW event – “A Woman Ain’t I?” Sojourner Truth
  • March 22 – Cabaret with Matt Edwards & Alexis Scangas
  • March 24 – Benning-Tones pop-up choir with Matt Edwards

In April, we will be closed for roof repair and theater maintenance. We hope that by May, we will proceed with our schedules performances and looking forward to our 2020 Summer Season beginning in June.

With regard to our education programming for students, we are seeking guidance from school districts and local government as to whether and how to proceed. We will be updating our website, social media sites and sending out emails on all of our programming and any changes that need to be addressed.

Thank you so much for your patronage and continued support during these difficult times. Be safe and see you in May.
