Dear Friends of the Ghent Playhouse, 


I hope this message finds you safe at home and in good health and good spirits.


As Artistic Director, I am always thrilled to announce the shows I have chosen each theatre season, and 2019-2020 was especially exciting, marking the Ghent Playhouse as the first regional community theater to present the award-winning musical, Fun Home.  As we began last season, we never imagined that it would end so abruptly in March, due to a world-wide pandemic.  For 46 years it has been our pleasure to offer our community exposure to professional-level theatre productions at an affordable price.  It is also our responsibility to continue to do so.  


A return to “normal” is a slow, ongoing process for New York State, but at this point, we plan to return in January 2021, with a short, three-show season, that will begin with our annual panto, followed by Fun Home and Last Train to Nibroc.


We look forward to re-opening our doors and once again seeing many familiar faces back in the seats of our treasured theatre.  We hope one of them will be yours.  Til then, stay safe.





Cathy Lee-Visscher
