Bluff City Theater
The 2020 Regular Season is cancelled, but look for special performances later this year!
Given the unprecedented level of uncertainty surrounding the CoVid 19 pandemic, we have been forced to make some incredibly difficult decisions regarding the 2020 season at Bluff City Theater.
Producing theater is a complex undertaking that requires us to make commitments months in advance of the actual performances. Even more importantly, our financial model is based on a combination of fundraising activities, donations and grants as well as subscriptions and single ticket sales, all of which happen in advance of the season.
With only six weeks to go before we are scheduled to begin rehearsals, it is clear that we must suspend or cancel the majority of our plans for 2020. To do anything less would put the theater and our audiences at risk.
Therefore, we have made the following decisions:
Comedy-on-the-River is postponed until the Fall, likely early October.
The 2020 Regular Season is cancelled. Those who have already purchased subscriptions and flex passes will automatically have them carried over to 2021, unless they request a refund. Those who have purchased single tickets for a particular event will get a refund.
Depending on when the crisis ends and restrictions are lifted, we will plan for a series of special performances in the theater similar to last weekend’s Sweet Dreams of Patsy event so that the theater can once again make a contribution to Hannibal’s all-important cultural economy.
Experience professional theater in an intimate setting at Bluff City Theater!
An artist-driven theater company with emphasis on literary works that bridge the gap between books and stage. While not exclusively limited to literature, Bluff City’s goal is to explore the written word through stage adaptation. The works chosen can span a wide array of types including drama, comedy and musicals and could incorporate readings and concert formats depending on the scope of the work and the best method of presenting it within the limitations of the theater organization. The source material can be from anywhere in the world. BCT selects their works based on a variety of criteria, but always from an artist-centric bias. For example, seasons could be built around broad themes, specific authors, specific eras or specific characters seen through the eyes of different authors.
