Due to COVID-19, Woodford Theatre does not currently have any volunteer opportunities. When we physically reopen, and it is safe to gather in our space, we will post specific opportunities here, on our Social Media, and to our email list.

These are challenging and unknown times. Since Friday, March 13, the Woodford Theatre staff has worked around the clock to stay informed on the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation; inform our sponsors, ticket holders, artists, students, contractors, and volunteers; explore new (to us) online territories; and do everything in our power to keep our business running.
On Tuesday, March 17, Governor Andy Beshear mandated all public facing businesses, including theaters and entertainment, to close for at least eight weeks. We understand and respect this decision, because this virus is a threat to our entire community, and we believe that the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. This mandate means Children of a Lesser God is, sadly, officially canceled. Ticket holders are being notified of alternative arrangements for their purchases. We are exploring ways in which we can still share this beautiful and important story digitally. Stay connected with us on Facebook and Instagram, as well as our email list, for this content and more in the coming days. Plus, see what our students have been up to by liking and following the Woodford Theatre Young Artists and The Girl Project.
We are exploring all options for the rest of the current season and the 2020.2021 season. Keeping in mind that the situation requires flexibility and adaptability, our current contingency plan is to postpone our season closer, Grease, to August 14-30, 2020. Our 2020.2021 MainStage season will begin in October. This allows time for us to produce Grease safely for our artists and patrons according to the current CDC recommendations.
Our entire staff, including our Box Office Manager, is working remotely. If you have any questions or needs, please leave us a message at 859.873.0648 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond during our regular Box Office hours (weekdays 11:00 AM-3:00 PM) until we can return to our physical space.
Thank you for your patience and continued support during these trying and uncertain times. Many businesses and individuals are struggling and Woodford Theatre needs our community now more than ever. If you are able, please consider making a donation to Woodford Theatre at https://web.ovationtix.com/
