Shakespeare Theatre Company is complying with the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and has suspended all public programming through May 17. Additionally, our buildings and work spaces ware currently closed, but many employees are teleworking and our Box Office is accessible Monday–Friday from noon to 6 p.m.
The Amen Corner and Timon of Athens closed early leaving some patrons with unusable tickets. Patrons with tickets to any canceled performance will receive an automatic credit for the value of their tickets, which may be applied to any STC performance through the end of the recently announced 2020/21 Season. This credit will appear on accounts automatically and patrons do not need to call the Box Office at this time.
Tickets may also be released as a tax-deductible donation to the Shakespeare Theatre Company as a contribution to the Phoenix Fund. With the help of a generous donor who has agreed to match gifts of any amount up to one million dollars, any contribution made will be matched dollar for dollar.

The most up-to-date information about this closure will always be available on our website and social media platforms. We expect a high volume of calls to the Box Office and ask patrons to remain patient as we relocate our staff to remote work sites and seek to update everyone in as timely a manner as possible.
We continue to monitor advice from the Center for Disease Control and the D.C. Health Department. In the meantime, we encourage our patrons and staff to take care of each other and themselves, especially staying home when ill. We thank our audiences for their continued support and understanding at this challenging time. We look forward to the resumption of our performances as soon as we are able.
