In-Person Performances Delayed Through Fall 2021

More than six months after the pandemic first forced the closure of theaters around the country, we have made the difficult decision not to produce in-person, indoor performances at Trinity Rep until fall 2021. During this pause in production, we are committing to equity, diversity and inclusion work; education initiatives; and digital content production.

We first announced Trinity Rep’s 2020–21 Season in April, a 6-show subscription lineup that included "Sweat" and "Sweeney Todd," which had been cancelled in the spring, as well as productions of "A Christmas Carol" and a revival of the 2019 sold-out hit "The Prince of Providence." The subscription season also included "Tiny Beautiful Things," "The Diary of Anne Frank," "Fairview" and "Anna K." In June, it became clear that the intended August start date for the season wouldn’t be possible, and we shifted to a winter 2020 through fall 2021 timeline.

Ticket holders for these productions, including subscribers, do not need to do anything. Their tickets will be automatically rolled over into corresponding shows once productions resume. Due to the length of time that will have elapsed, when a new performance schedule is announced, some titles may change due to availability, the needs of the community, and relevance to current events. The box office will contact ticket buyers at that time to confirm dates. In the meantime, any ticket holder with questions can contact the box office at or (401) 351-4242.

A Christmas Carol

The free, online production of "A Christmas Carol" announced in August will continue. The on-demand, streaming show will be available in late November and feature Joe Wilson, Jr. as Ebenezer Scrooge, directed by Curt Columbus.

How To Support Trinity Rep

Donations and sponsorships are needed to underwrite the costs associated with this production, and to support the theater’s work during this period. Please consider supporting us at By postponing in-person productions, the organization’s budget is reduced by approximately 50%, resulting in a significant workforce reduction.
