What is a virtual season?

Instead of in-person performances, Actors Theatre will present virtual experiences through digital content.  These projects will be available for streaming on your preferred device.  With brilliant artists and reimagined design elements, we’ll be sharing wonderful stories through innovative technology. 

I'm new to streaming. How do i do it?

If you’re reading this message on a desktop computer, smart phone or tablet, you’re 99% of the way there! We are hard at work right now to provide you with the most fun, seamless experience possible. Specifics may vary from project to project, but we will be here to support you throughout the season to make sure you don’t miss out.

What will be part of the season?

We are excited to announce our Brown-Forman Series as well as holiday favorites. In addition to this season’s projects there will be interactive events like shared watch parties, talkbacks and in-home activities. You can learn more about those projects by exploring the lineup.

What about performances that had previously been announced for the 2020-21 Season?

Our previous season announcement came only a few days before we ended our season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In light of these developments, Actors Theatre is excited to present a new season of work that promises to be ambitious, accessible and inclusive thanks to the possibility of technology.  This season continues to focus on exceptional storytelling in a format specifically designed for a virtual viewing experience.

What if I already bought a 2020-21 subscription?

Your subscription will be converted to an All Access Pass. You will receive information about your new package. There may be special events and viewings that have a specific date and time. This information will be shared in advance.

Do I need multiple subscriptions if we are in the same household?

That’s a great question!  As we move from seats in the theatre to virtual tickets, we’ll let you know how those translate and will provide information and options in July when pricing and options are finalized.

Can I pay in installments?

We accept payment for Season Ticket Packages in 4 monthly installments. Orders must be paid in full prior to the start of your first performance.
