Dear Friends of the Festival,
In addition to bringing with it a beautiful time of year, fall is normally the time in which we would announce our season for the coming summer, sharing with you our sense of excitement and anticipation for the selected plays and the enriching experiences they promise.
The great news is: PSF will return in 2021. “Yet it will come.”
Amidst all the uncertainty, our aim is to plan a season you and we can count on, savor, and celebrate. We are attentive to taking enough time to make good decisions based on dependable information. We balance this with equal attention to the number of months we will need to prepare the season once those decisions are made. It’s important that the season we announce and plan for is a season we can produce safely and reliably, for you, for us, for our artists and artisans. “The readiness is all.“
We are deep in scenario planning for our 2021 summer season, envisioning a vibrant mix of indoor, outdoor, and online offerings. Something for everyone. Our mission is to enrich, inspire, engage, and entertain the widest possible audience. The very nature of a PSF season is to refresh and renew us all through world-class artistry, and this season will bring new delights and inspirations to you, your friends, your family, and our communities. And just as Hamlet notes that theatre artists are “the abstract and brief chronicles of the time,” look for the content of our seasons going forward to also engage with you in the intersections and immediacy of past, present, and the anticipated future.
We’ll be in touch in the coming weeks and months. For now, please join us in marking your calendars for the long-awaited return of summer breezes and the joyful inspiration of live, professional theatre at PSF. More to come…
Producing Artistic Director
