Dear friends of Forward,

The health and safety of our patrons, performers, volunteers, and staff is our highest priority. We have followed closely the news of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our community, and out of an abundance of caution, we are cancelling all public performances of The Amateurs.

However, we are also extremely proud of the artistry by the actors and creative team on this play, and are currently working on alternative ways to share this special production with you. We ask for your patience as we work on those details and determine all of the options we will be able to offer to ticket holders. Updates can be found here, and will also be shared via email, our e-newsletter, and social media.
