Chenango River Theatre forced to cancel the 2020 season

Up to the Minute

From the Chenango River Theatre:

Chenango River Theatre has reached a point where cancelling the 2020 season is the
only option. As the Binghamton area’s only Equity, non-profit professional theatre, with
over 700 season ticket holders, the company’s hope over these last 3 months had been
that by June 15th they could begin auditions and salvage the last 3 shows in their 2020
season. It’s clear now that can’t happen. The company’s first concern has to be for the
safety of our audience, along with the actors, designers, volunteers and tech crews that
make the season happen.

Programming will resume in 2021, for what will be Artistic & Managing Director Bill
Lelbach’s final season before he retires and turns the company over to the successor
selected from the national search currently underway.
