Welcome to The Keegan Theatre! (kind of)
Thank you for joining us online for our virtual fall repertory! This year has been so challenging for so many, and while it’s still not safe for us to return to traditional theatre-making — live and in person at our intimate space on Church Street — we hope that this modified version of the “real thing” can still inspire, empower, and make us all feel more connected.
All of us at Keegan are honored to be producing these works and working with these storytellers. Lisa, Drew, and Dwayne possess immense talent and present perspectives that we think will be exciting for our audiences to experience. They offer so much of themselves in their pieces, and we’re grateful to them for joining us on this journey into live streamed theatre.
We’re also grateful to you, our audience members, for joining us in this virtual sphere to connect through live theatre — albeit in a different way than usual. When considering how we could move forward with mainstage programming while adhering to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, we were inspired by the possibility of returning to theatre as it’s usually produced in our space, but with the singular and significant change of audiences taking the show in from their homes instead of sitting in seats at Keegan. The undeniable draw of art happening live — that thrill, that spontaneity — is what drove our decision to produce this repertory in this unique way, and we can’t thank you enough for being here.
So, in the spirit of getting as close to the “real thing” as possible, I now invite you to grab a drink, find a comfortable seat, unwrap your snacks and candy now — and enjoy the show!
