Dear Act II Friends and Family,
Based on the most current information and reopening guidelines from Governor Wolf that include mandatory state-wide practices for reduced capacity and safety measures, we are sharing an update about the performance schedule of our new 2020-21 season.
Too Darn Hot, An Evening of Cole Porter
Too Darn Hot, An Evening of Cole Porter, that was scheduled to start this month has been rescheduled to next summer, 2021. If you have tickets to the show, you don’t need to do anything. The show has been moved to next July and we have moved over your tickets. If you would prefer to make another arrangement, please give us a call. It’s best to leave your message at our 215.654.0200 Box Office number so that we may return your call from our remote locations, or you may email us your instructions [email protected].

As we move forward here in Ambler, we are exploring every opportunity to continue to bring you the shows that you love and that we love to bring to the stage. For now, that means that we are “going virtual” with Electile Dysfunction, Hindsight is 2020. The show is being done in its entirety as a virtual production and it is being filmed live from the Playhouse. It will be streamed to audiences via a new platform we are calling the ACT II Virtual Theatre that we are working on bringing you. We are very excited to learn, along with you, what this could mean as we also plan on when we can once again all enjoy the live experience – in-person at the Playhouse – that is at the heart of our theatre family.
All of us at the Playhouse continue to monitor information available from Ambler Borough, Montgomery County, state and federal officials, and public health organizations, and may need to adapt or make other changes as new information becomes available.
We are believers in ‘the show must go on.’ We know that many in our audience have made extensive plans (sometimes for months in advance) to come to the theatre – often as an event with family or other couples – and we don’t want to disappoint you. We are planning carefully and will continue to keep you informed.
We wish you well and look forward to seeing you at the Playhouse soon. Please, continue to be safe and stay in touch to tell us how you are doing.
