UpstART Theater and The Wright Opera House are sad to announce that our production of Othello, scheduled next weekend, August 12-15, is cancelled. Our lead actor came down with a nasty, symptomatic case of COVID, and for the safety of all concerned (as well as for the quality of the production), we have no choice but to cancel.
We love this play, and desperately want to share it with you, but we cannot safely bring it to you this summer. We now plan to mount Othello in the summer of 2023. We look forward to playing with you then, and we thank you for your support in these extraordinary times.

This summer’s production of Othello has been cancelled due to our irreplaceable lead actor coming down with COVID-19. We will reschedule the production for the summer of 2023. Thank you for your understanding!
