Due to unforeseen circumstances, Passage Theatre announced several date and presentation changes for the remainder of its 2020-21 Season.
Passage’s online play reading of Babel written by Jacqueline Goldfinger and directed by Jill Harrison has been moved back a month to February 18th – 21st. A group screening will be held at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 20th and will include a live post-show discussion with the reading’s artists immediately following the performance. Tickets previously purchased for the January dates will be honored for the new February screening dates.
Unfortunately, Passage has had to cancel its Solo Flight’s presentation of Mother (and me) written and performed by Melinda Buckley, which was originally scheduled for February 19th – 21st due to health reasons. Passage’s Artistic Director C. Ryanne Domingues and Ms. Buckley both agreed that canceling this year’s presentation was needed at this time. However, both are committed to presenting Mother (and me) in a future season at Passage. Ticket holders and Passport members can either receive a refund for the price of their Mother (and me) ticket, or kindly donate the cost of their ticket to Passage. Requests for refunds can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Passage has had to change its live in-person Theatre for Families and Young Audiences production of Surely Goodness and Mercy, mainstage production A Twist of Water, and its PlayLab readings of The OK Trenton Project and Group! due to the ongoing medical crisis caused by COVID-19. In keeping with NJ State health guidelines, Surely Goodness and Mercy (March 19-21) and A Twist of Water (May 12 -16) will be presented online only and not in-person.
Additionally, Passage has also pushed back its live in-person public readings of The OK Trenton Project and Group! due to the pandemic crisis. The OK Trenton Project’s in-person public reading will be held on June 19th as an outdoor reading, and the in-person public reading of Group! has been moved to the start of Passage’s 2021-22 season this coming fall. All current 2020-21 Passport Members will be invited to attend these in-person public readings at no charge.

Passage’s Artistic Director C. Ryanne Domingues says “The past year has required an enormous amount of stamina, flexibility, strength and patience from people around the globe. At Passage, we are doing our best to hold space for our staff, artists and audiences to process current events and to heal from both physical and mental traumas that they may be enduring.”
She continued, “With these things in mind, Passage is committed to remaining flexible and responsive in our programming. While we may have to shift and move our dates around to accommodate the health of our artists and audiences, we are also seeking out ways to be more creative and think outside the box with new and exciting ways to share our upcoming productions.”
