The Henry Players Theater Covid-19 Update
We here at The Henry Players miss all our patrons, actors/actresses, volunteers, and each other so very much, and want more than anything for the “show to go on”. The 2019/2020 Season was shaping up to be the best Season yet in our Hood Street home, and we were looking forward to closing it out with a bang with our final two Main Stage shows, as well as our HYPE Summer program shows. Due to the current state of our world (and the continued closure of live venues), the Board of Director’s have come to the difficult heart breaking decision to close out the 20/21 Season as is. Your safety is our utmost priority! Do not fret, however, because the SHOW WILL GO ON…. Just at later dates. As long as rights allow, we will open our 30th Season with Mamma Mia. Thank you to a cast and crew that continue to stick around, despite all the unknowns. We can’t wait to share all your continued hard work with our community. Our final scheduled Season 29 show, Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, will fall in one of our later Season 30 time slots. We our putting together a questionnaire for all our patrons that have already purchased tickets for either or both shows to see how you would like to proceed. You can switch your days, use that as a credit towards Season 30 Season tickets (or individual shows), request a refund (please be patient, as it will take some time to get these processed), or choose to donate it to The Henry Players.
As for our youth program, HYPE, for now, as much as it pains us, we will be cancelling the “Littles” June camp. We are still looking at our options for our July show. We have outstanding young talent that we want to continue to give an opportunity to shine. Keep an eye out on our HYPE and THP pages for an update to our Summer program in the days ahead.
If you would like to make a donation that will help us throughout this closure, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Board continues to put a plan together for re-opening THP Theater, and for an awesome 30th Season. Please keep an eye out for continued updates as the situation progresses.
We love you, we miss you and we can’t wait to see you again!

Mamma Mia! is a jukebox musical written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, based on the songs of ABBA composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, former members of the band. The title of the musical is taken from the group’s 1975 chart-topper “Mamma Mia”. Image
