Despite countless hours spent creating seating charts, ingress and egress plans, sanitization, and other protocols to insure the health and safety of our volunteers, patrons, and staff, the Theatre Denton Governing Board, after considering public health official’s warning of continued high risk of Covid-19 spread, has decided that we cannot safely proceed with plans to reopen to the public at this time. As you may recall, Theatre Denton was proactive in slowing the spread of virus by closing our doors even before it was mandated–stating at the time that we would reopen only when we felt confident it could be done safely for all involved.Gratefully,
There is, however, a silver lining. Although we will not be presenting live events this fall, we have received permission for live streaming productions . . . starting with The Gin Game in October (dates to be announced) starring Denton stage favorites, Buster and Cindy Maloney! Season ticket holders will be invited to view at no charge. Others will have the opportunity to purchase a “ticket” to view this exciting event in the comfort and safety of their own home. Detailed viewing instructions will be available very soon.
To all of you who have so generously donated over these past few months, including many who donated their 2019-2020 season tickets refund, please know how vital it has been in carrying on the day-to-day operations of the Campus Theatre, including, maintenance, repairs, insurance, utilities, and continued employment for our theatre staff. Your generosity has helped to ensure that the theatre will be ready to resume normal operations when the time comes to safely reopen.
Theatre Denton Governing Board
Welcome to Theatre Denton
For decades, Denton Community Theatre and Music Theatre of Denton have co-existed, sharing Denton’s Historic Campus Theatre, a talent pool and many other resources relating to the production of live theatre.
It was back in 2017 that the governing boards and management of both companies started talking about joining forces. One thing led to another, and three years and six million (well, almost) committee meetings later, here we are with a brand new, shiny theatre company to serve the arts community of Denton better than ever before.
We have upped the number of productions done by either company to bring you a full season of entertainment from the same people who have been entertaining you for decades.
We will have all resources, including our social media, web site and app, merged very soon to give you a true One-Stop experience when it comes to live theatre in Denton. This will be our main web site moving forward. Over the coming months, DentonCommunityTheatre.com and MusicTheatreofDenton.com will both forward to this location.
- Thank you for your support over the past 50 years.
- Thank you for visiting our new web site.
- We’ll see you at the theatre very soon!
