March 18, 2021
Dear NSMT Friends,
We want to start by saying “Thank You!” for holding steady with us thru this global COVID-19 pandemic. With every day that passes, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. As the vaccination plan continues on schedule and numbers continue to trend in the right direction, restrictions on gathering and performances are slowly being loosened and lifted. With the current COVID restrictions, we are unable to open the season in June as planned. Please keep in mind that we create all of our shows specifically for our audiences, so to get from casting to opening night we need a few months of lead time.
Airing on the side of caution, and for the safety of our audiences, guest artists, and staff, we have decided to flip the planned 2021 subscription season to 2022. However, we are very optimistic we will be able to welcome you back to the North Shore Music Theatre for shows this October with the encore performance of Mamma Mia! followed by the 30th Annual production of A Christmas Carol.
THE 2021/2022 MAIN STAGE SHOW SCHEDULE*:
2022 MUSICAL SERIES
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH MY OLD TICKETS?
Current Ticket holders for the previously scheduled 2020(21) productions of MAMMA MIA! and A CHRISTMAS CAROL will receive new tickets with equivalent 2021 dates. Those tickets will be printed and mailed in late summer/early fall.
Current Season Subscribers and ticket holders for the previously scheduled 2020(21) productions of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE**, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA, BUDDY - THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and KINKY BOOTS will receive new tickets with equivalent 2022 dates. Those tickets will be printed and mailed in Spring of 2022.
Current ticket holders can find equivalent show dates on each show's webpage.
All Ticket holders/subscribers have the option to turn their current tickets into a North Shore Music Theatre Gift Certificate to be used for future purchase. NSMT Gift Certificates never expire.
** Please note that Thoroughly Modern Millie will be replaced by an all new production of SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE: THE SONGS OF LEIBER AND STOLLER.

SAFE REOPENING PLANS
We continue to work on a safe reopening plan with the guidance of the CDC, state and local government, as well all applicable unions to ensure the health and safety of our North Shore Music Theatre patrons, staff, casts, and creative teams. Once set, all safety precautions will be posted on our website where they will stay for the foreseeable future.
Patrons can always get updates on everything happening at North Shore Music Theatre by following us @officialnsmt on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
We thank you for your support through this unexpected intermission and look forward to being together again soon.
Bill Hanney and the entire team at NSMT
We stand in solidarity with our Black employees, fellow theatre creators, performers, musicians, crew, audience members, and all those in the Black community. We stand against racism. We stand against discrimination in all forms. We see you, we hear you. We are listening. We know we’re not perfect. We know we have not always been vocal when we should have. For that, we are truly sorry.
Actions will always speak louder than words. We must now collectively take it upon ourselves as an organization and individual citizens to do the work—to donate, to research, to self-educate, to train staff, to protect employees/guests, to stand against hate, to stand against racism at all touchpoints. We know we have a long way to go to shape the future we wish to see in life, on stage, and behind the scenes. We must never again fall silent. We must work together to speak out, now and forever, until #BlackLivesMatter is more than just a movement, but the tangible reality of true justice for all.
