  • When Community Risk Level is MEDIUM (yellow) - Masks are recommended indoors and in large groups. If you are immunocompromised or at higher risk, consider wearing a mask at indoor public settings where vaccination status is unknown.
  • When Community Risk Level is LOW (green)- masks will be optional. If you are immunocompromised or at higher risk, consider wearing a mask at indoor public settings where vaccination status is unknown.

Free Exchanges due to illness

If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend :) Contact our box office on the day of performance and we will reschedule your ticket at no charge.

HVAC Improvements

Our upgraded HVAC systems increase the number of air exchanges to remove aerosolized droplets and provide updated filtering to meet CDC and city standards.

On behalf of the producers, staff and performers, we issue a heartfelt thank you to our audiences who make these generous accomodations for the health of all. We also thank you for respecting the choices of others regarding mask use in our space.

A Comedy with a twist of rhyme

Remember little Cindy-Lou Who who was not more than two.
What became of that tot, after that Grinch and what-not?
Come join us for this grown-up Who's holiday fete!
Leave your kids at home (that's the safest bet.)
And try to catch up with Cindy-Lou Who's life,
She's seen some things due to her own grinch-y strife.
But nothing can dampen the holiday cheer:
Not vodka, not Rudolph, not even flat beer.
With a song in her heart, and a pipe full of weed
She'll celebrate trailer park living at need
Her wisdom dispensed with a shot and a leer.
For this is a holiday tale of such vision...
With smoking and drinking and gossip ...
...and prison.
