New Bedford’s Zeiterion stage will be dark through August 2
We cherish the traditions at The Z, from the annual The New Bedford Folk Festival to the summer Broadway musicals by New Bedford Festival Theatre. But unfortunately, the next several of months will mean a change in some long-held traditions. We are committed to keeping our city and each other safe, and have decided to cancel or reschedule all performances through August 2.
This is a time of immense shared loss, throughout our city and the world. The Zeiterion and its resident companies, The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra and New Bedford Festival Theatre, will bear financial losses, reductions in staffing, and most heartbreakingly, the loss of our ability to gather and share in the magic of live performances.
Though our stage will remain dark through early August, our commitment to our mission will burn brighter than ever. We will work tirelessly to bring you glorious work by incredible artists, and continue to find safe ways to connect until we can be together again. Thank you for all you do to keep the magic alive at The Z. Be safe. We’ll see you soon!
With this pause in revenue from performances and programming, your support plays an even bigger role. How can you help? You can become a member, buy a gift card or make a tax-deductible donation to support the non-profit Zeiterion Performing Arts Center during this time of uncertainty. Thank you!
Samantha Johnson’s performance will help raise money for Southcoast Health’s Covid relief efforts! Find out more about this special event here.
For the health and safety of our audiences, artists, volunteers, and staff, we have postponed or cancelled all performances through August 2. Stay tuned to The Z’s Facebook, Instagram and web site for the most current information. We know, like us, you believe the show will go on!
