A Gatesinger Company Update

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and with great concern for our Casts, Crews, and Patrons, the outgoing Board of Directors made the decision in May to cancel the 2020-2021 Gatesinger Company performance season.  We are very appreciative of their painstaking care and protective steps to help ensure that when this crisis ends, Gatesinger Co. Members and Patrons will once again be able to return to Gates Hall healthy and safely.

Our stage may be dark, but Gatesingers are still hard at work!  The newly appointed Board of Directors is working to update and make changes that will help our company move forward and meet the future with vibrant enthusiasm.  Change is hard, and much like cleaning your room or garage, looks really messy during the “in process” stage, so we thank you for your support during this time.  

However, it is under this new momentum that we excitedly launched our Gatesinger Youth Artist Series.  These workshops are designed to educate and provide industry contact opportunities for our next generation of theatre artists.  Our first workshop was held October 4th and featured an afternoon of vocal and movement work with 14 teens and 2 facilitators.  It was a hit!  We are so proud of the teen performers who joined us for the inaugural session.  A second workshop was held on November 8th, and videos from both sessions can be viewed on our new Youth Artist Series webpage.  Stay tuned for more workshop announcements, we are very busy making plans with technicians, performers, and coaches from across the region to bring to the series.

We are also very excited to launch a Holiday Video Series.  We’ve missed performing for you and have invited Gatesinger Artists to record songs, stories, and poems to share with you during this holiday season.  Visit our Gatesinger Company Ltd. Facebook page or return to this website every Wednesday evening between November 25th and Christmas week to see a familiar face and celebrate the season with us.

We look forward to updating you with more news soon.  Until then, be safe friends, and enjoy the holidays.

On behalf of the 2020-21 Board of Directors,

Jeremy Cummings (President) & Kasi Krenzer Marshall (VP)
