Theatre Tuscaloosa, like the rest of the world, had to cancel events because of COVID-19, but organizers believe the show must go on. In a safe way, of course.

The nonprofit, based at Shelton State Community College, is launching Spreading Joy Programming next summer. These productions will designed specifically to be safe for actors, staff and audience members.

Shows will have smaller casts and have five or fewer actors on stage at any given time. Performances will be 90 minutes or less, with no intermission and no concessions for sale. Social distancing will also be enforced.

Theatre Tuscaloosa Managing Director Adam Miller said he believes the new programming will help the organization reach its goals while maintaining a safe environment for everyone.

“We have a specific mission and that mission is, when you boil it right down, produce live theater and do educational outreach,” Miller said, “These ‘Spreading Joy’ programming initiatives allow us to do those two things and fulfill our mission in a safe way.”

Spreading Joy Programming begins in July 2021.  Visit theatretuscaloosa.com for more information.
