Welcome to The Next Stage of Theatre!
Willamette Theatre moves online for its 2020-21 Season, including Livestream and recorded broadcast.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, we are not currently offering a live audience experience.
We hope the following will excite and comfort our audience members as we explore THE NEXT STAGE of theatre!
Willamette University Theatre's 2020-21 performances, complete with lighting and sound design, will be broadcast over the internet to our off-campus patrons.
Live shows (WU students & staff only)
Audiences limited to 20. COVID19 protocols include:
• Distanced seating.
• Facemasks for all patrons, actors & crew.
• Online sales only.
• Staggered admission times.
Patrons will receive an email two days before their performance with more information.
Livestream Broadcasts (online)
Live performances are streamed in real-time to ticketed audiences. After purchase, patrons receive an email two days before their performance with more information.
Pre-recorded Broadcasts (online)
After the run of the show, a recorded broadcast will be available for purchase and viewing for a limited time. There will also be special times during the season that shows are made available again for viewing, such as the holiday season and the end of the Theatre season. Like the Livestream option, you email address will be your "ticket" to the YouTube recording.
New times bring us new ways to connect with our audiences and give you experiences beyond the stage performances!
Virtual Town Halls
Each production will hold a free, online Town Hall conversation with the director, designer, and cast of the show. Virtual Town Halls take place on Zoom, and are advertised on our Facebook page. Invitations are also sent to members of our email list.
Audience questions and answer sessions during the performance runs. These free Talkbacks with the cast and director will take place on Zoom. You do not need to have seen that matinee performance to be a part of the action!
