Before we begin - a word about the pandemic

Like many in our vibrant theater community, we are eager to return to the stage.   Theater has been hit hard by the pandemic.  However, we want to try to be as safe as possible.

To that end, by the time the shows are in production most adults should have access to the Covid vaccine.   We feel it is important to encourage ALL participants in the festival be vaccinated or have antibodies from prior infection.    We hope you seek this protection prior to the start of productions in September.   

If you have any questions, you may contact the producers at firstfolioplayers@gmail.com. Thank you!
