Baltimore Theatres COVID-19 Information Hub
With school & university closures and Baltimore Mayor Jack Young's announcement this afternoon banning all events with over 250 attendants, the Baltimore Theatre community is mobilizing in many ways to disseminate accurate information, guide artists to resources, and coordinate financial relief efforts for organizations that will lose significant revenue if they cannot host their regularly scheduled events.
First and foremost, everyone in our community is committed to the health & safety of all of our patrons, staff, and artists. Many productions & events have already been cancelled or postponed. However, for some organizations, it is not feasible for them to pause production schedules or contracts. There will still be theatre and arts events going on in the city, and we encourage patrons to attend if they have assessed it is safe for them to do so. Alternatively, please consider making a donation to your favorite or local theater company, as attendance to any event will inevitably be less robust due to people taking the recommended precautions outlined by the CDC & the Mayor's office.
If you would like to partake in ongoing discussions on responses & resources for the arts community, you can join these groups on Facebook:
