Upcoming Shows!

Rescheduled to 2021


To Our Friends and Patrons

Little did we know in March of this year when Calliope cancelled its second weekend of performances of “The Lady Vanishes” and rescheduled its May production of “Spamalot” for May of 2021, the extent to which the coronavirus pandemic would impact all of society.

For the past few months, Calliope’s Board of Directors had held on to the hope that we would be able to present our 2020 Summer Youth Theatre programs, October play, and December musical this year. However, in light of the pandemic’s on-going risks, and in compliance with CDC advisories and the Guidelines for Reopening Massachusetts, we have decided to cancel the rest of our 2020 productions and programs and reschedule them for 2021.

The 2020 Summer Youth Theatre teen production of “Bye Bye Birdie” and pre-teen production of “Willy Wonka, Jr.” will now be performed in July of 2021. October’s staging of “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” will be done in March of 2021, and December’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” will be presented in December of 2021.

These shows will join our already-rescheduled production of the musical “Spamalot” next May to comprise most of our 2021 season. Note: As a result of the rescheduling of these shows, all 2020 Calliope Theatre Passes will be valid through the 2021 season.

Because nonprofit cultural organizations like Calliope depend on the income from ticket sales to fund their on-going operational budgets and have been hit hard by pandemic-related shutdowns, we encourage you to make donations to as many of them as you can over the next several months. Please click on the “Donate” button below to support Calliope Productions. Any amount will be appreciated; no amount is too small.

All of us at Calliope thank you for your continued support and understanding in these difficult times and hope you stay safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing you in better times ahead and sharing the excitement of live theatre once again!
