Although we are devastated that we were not be able to share our 2020 production with the community, please take a moment to enjoy John Furtado (in his 15th year an an ODT cast member!) singing “Giants in the Sky”

We at Open Door have decided to cancel our performances of Into The Woods, scheduled for the weekends of March 27th and April 3rd, due the growing Covid-19 virus spread.  We are heartbroken to have to make this decision. Our cast, crews and production team have been nothing short of amazing in the work that they have put into making this show beautiful. While we are sad that you will not get to experience the final vision, it is always the journey and not the destination which is most important, and we find comfort in the enlightening and special journey that we took into the woods together.  Open Door prides itself on being a family and this decision was made in that light and we always do whatever we need to take care of our family.  

Some people have also expressed concern about the financial effects of this cancellation.  Open Door does incur most of the expenses of productions before the curtain goes up.  We are working with some of our vendors to see if they can provide us with any relief.  With that said, we established a contingency fund a few years ago to protect us against, events like this.  Our financial health is currently secure, and we hope to continue to mount the accessible high quality programming to which we have let you become accustomed.  If you would like to assist us to recoup our losses, contributions of any size will be helpful and can be sent to us at Open Door Theater, Po Box 2553, Acton, MA  01720 or here on our website.

In these times, we are reminded of a line from “Into the Woods” ; “Though it’s fearful – though it’s deep, though it’s dark and though you may lose the path ….You are not alone…no one is alone!” We are all in this together.
