The PW board now is in serious discussions on when the currently video-centric community theater group can come back to the stage.

Players Workshop might raise the curtain this fall, but members say a return to live theater will depend on the status of COVID-19.

The PW board is in serious discussions on when the currently video-centric community theater group can come back to the stage, according to Bonnie Downes, PW’s marketing director.

“We are working toward reopening this fall with live performances of ‘The Fox on the Fairway’ the first two weekends of October,” said Mary Fox, who is up for reelection to her final term as PW president at the annual board meeting May 26. “However, the state of the pandemic will be a determining factor. A more firm decision will need to be made in early July to allow time to send out season tickets, market the season and hold auditions. We are working toward this goal, but it’s not written in stone.”
