Navigating an Ever‑changing Landscape
Dear Tabard Friends and Family,
It is with a heavy heart today that I have to announce that we are cancelling our production of Arsenic & Old Lace: A Live Radio Play. I have been working tirelessly with local officials to get additional clarity on how theatre as an industry can move forward and present works of art that inspire, capture the imagination and bring us all a sense of community during these difficult times. Yesterday the County of Santa Clara published new official clarifications that directly affect our industry.
