Pillsbury House Theatre COVID-19 Updates

These are unusual times that we find ourselves in. Pillsbury House Theatre’s priority is the health of our employees, patrons and artists. We want everyone that comes in contact with us to remain safe and healthy. As we ride this ever changing storm of the coronavirus pandemic, we wanted to let you know of some of the difficult but necessary decisions we have made that will impact programming.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18th, excluding Pillsbury Early Education Center, Pillsbury House Theatre will be closed , and our staff will work remotely. We will remain temporarily closed as we monitor the situation and continue to honor the CDC’s recommendations around social distancing. We understand this is an inconvenience for many, and we are truly sorry.

Nina Simone: Four Women

When we scheduled Nina Simone: Four Women for April of our 2020 season, we had no idea what would be in store for the world. All we knew was that, after years of dreaming and planning, this powerful production was finally coming to the PHT Mainstage.
When we made the decision to postpone the production for the safety of our artists, patrons and staff, we initially hoped to reschedule it for later this summer. However, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to continue our postponement of the show through the end of the year. While we still have every intention of producing Nina Simone: Four Women, we’re going to wait until we can give this show the production it deserves. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, all ticket sales will be refunded by our vendor, Ovationtix. Please contact Marketing & Communications Manager Rachel Fettig at rachelf@pillsburyhousetheatre.org with any questions.


Chicago Avenue Project

The spring Chicago Avenue Project took the form of a free online course.

In the 7-week virtual course, Pillsbury House Theatre teaching artists led lessons with movement moments, drawing, imagination, playing, acting and script writing. By the end of the course, each child had completed a script for a 10-minute play, and the plays were performed and recorded by local actors
