F.A.Q.'s

In response to the “social distancing” needed to keep our community safe, Hillbarn Theatre has canceled all remaining performances of Laughter on the 23rd Floor and the production of La Cages aux Folles scheduled for May. This closure is having very real financial consequences for our organization. We remain vigilant in our attempts to keep the company viable until we can open our doors again. We now must rely on the generosity of our donors and ticket buyers as important partners for long term sustainability. Please join other members of the Hillbarn community by making a charitable contribution to support the theatre company during these uncertain times. Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions about current operations and future plans.

MAINSTAGE

Unfortunately, no. In the interests of public health, we have canceled the remainder of our 19/20 season, including Laughter on the 23rd Floor and La Cages aux Folles.

Our presentation of the world premiere of The Four Gifts is being moved to our 80th Season!

If you have tickets for Laughter on the 23rd Floor and La Cages aux Folles you may explore the following options:

  • We are strongly encouraging our patrons to take the value of your subscription and turn it into a tax-deductible donation in our “Sustaining Belief” Fund*.

OR

  • Take the value of your tickets and credit them to your account to be used towards single tickets or your subscription renewal for the 20/21, 80th Anniversary Season.

*Federal Economic Stimulus legislation includes the following arts-related items to address the continuing damage caused by the COVID-19 virus:

An “above-the-line” or universal charitable giving incentive for contributions made in 2020 of up to $300. This provision will now allow all non-itemizer taxpayers (close to 90% of all taxpayers) to deduct charitable contributions from their tax return, an incentive previously unavailable to them. Additionally, the stimulus legislation lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for itemizers from 60 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) to 100 percent of AGI for contributions made in 2020. This information can be found here.

As stated on our website all sales are final and we are unable to offer refunds at this time.
