The Community Players of New Hamburg (TCP) are continuing with plans for outdoor performance of 5 plays but under current pandemic restrictions have pushed the dates off until August 5-12.
The group also announced that performances will take place in an open-air tent behind the Waterlot in New Hamburg pending moving to the “orange zone” of the COVID-19 restriction levels to allow for 100 people at the events.
“This idyllic setting will be a wonderful location to set up a large tent to shelter performers and patrons while still remaining an “open air” venue in the heart of New Hamburg,” said marketing manager Chris Steingart.
Online rehearsals continue for all 5 shows and will move to in-person practices when it is safe to do so.
“We are committed to this plan to bring live theatre to Wilmot once again and hope that everyone can do their part in this current lockdown to keep the spread dow,” said Steingart.
