The Volcano Theatre Company is announcing today it will delay its 46th season until August 1, due to the impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

 

It is with great sadness that we are making these decisions today. The resulting delay in the opening of our 2020 season has very real financial consequences not only for this organization and our family of artists and volunteers, but for the town of Volcano, its restaurants, hotel, retail, and other businesses, and the entire County of Amador. In unprecedented circumstances like this, when all communities are feeling the impact of a global pandemic, it is important to be grounded in our compassion for one another. I know that our community will see VTC through and help us return as soon as possible to the celebration of art for which we are known.

 

Beginning August 1 and running through September 6, VTC will present “Hay Fever”. The remainder of the season will be as originally scheduled with “Outward Bound” running September 18 through October 18 and “If It’s Monday, This Must be Christmas!” November 13 through December 13.  “On Golden Pond” and “Charlotte’s Web” will be presented spring and summer 2021.

 

We truly regret that we have had to amend our season this year. It is our sincere hope that we can present for our patrons the remaining season as currently scheduled. Our actors and crew will truly miss presenting two of our productions, but we know we must stay safe and healthy and respect the restrictions in place for all our security.

COVID-19 Cancellation Policy

 

Volcano Theatre will be reaching out to current ticket holders in the coming weeks. The following options will be available for those who have already purchased tickets to performances that are canceled:

 

Donate*: Donate the value of the tickets back to the VTC, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We ask that, if you are able you consider this donation option. At this moment of unprecedented impact on all arts organizations, this is the simplest way to help sustain VTC at this difficult time.

 

Exchange: Exchange your tickets for another performance or for a return visit later in the season (subject to ticket availability). All exchanges are based on the value of your original tickets. Or we can issue a voucher good through 2021.

 

Refund: If you are unable to return this season or next, we will provide you with a refund for the tickets to the affected performances.

 

We continue our best efforts to ensure our company and our patrons are protected during this time of global health emergency. The health and well-being of our VTC family, including you, our audience, is at the center of our efforts at this time. Thank you for your support of the Volcano Theatre Company and your understanding. Please take care of yourselves, your families, your neighbors, and your communities.

 

Volcano Theatre Company is a nonprofit organization. Ticket donations are vital in helping VTC sustain operations during challenging times such as this. Patrons who choose to donate the value of their tickets will be provided with a receipt for tax purposes.
