Attending The Suburbs? B.Y.O.C.

In the grand tradition of CHIRP, seating for Thrown Stone’s roving production of The Suburbs will be “bring your own.” We’ve chosen this style of seating to give you maximum flexibility as you follow the production from Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center, to The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, to West Lane Inn during the course of the performance. Simply bring along a folding camp chair, picnic blanket, or stadium cushion just as you would for Ridgefield’s popular summer concert series, and set up anywhere you’d like within our defined seating areas at each venue.  Ushers will be on-hand to show you where to go.

Acts of Fate [Update]

[Updated] Seeking Submissions for “Acts of Fate”

UPDATE:

Way back in March (remember March?) we asked you to submit stories about “moments that changed everything.” Little did we know that we were already in the middle of just such a moment. Now that our 2020 season is postponed, we need to find a way to come together and share those moments. So we’re going virtual, and there are a few important adjustments you need to be aware of:

  1. The submission deadline is still May 22nd at midnight
  2. We’ve moved the performance date up to June 5th at 7pm
  3. Selected performers must be available for a virtual rehearsal and run-through on Friday, May 29th at 6pm
  4. This round of “Acts of Fate” will be limited to solo performances only
  5. Performers must have their own internet-enabled device with a camera

We hope this is an opportunity for you to reflect and express some essential truths about your experience of this moment. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Read more

2020 Season Postponed to 2021

2020 Season Postponed

After consulting with our Board, staff, and partners, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The health and wellbeing of our audience and the community comes first.

The good news is that it’s only a delay.

We will tentatively open Annie Jump and the Library of Heaven by Reina Hardy on July 9, 2021 and The Phlebotomist by Ella Road on July 16, 2021, with tickets going on sale about this time next year. We thank our partners for making this change possible.

At this challenging time, our hearts are with the sick, the healthcare workers, and those who have lost loved ones. We hope the prospect of a 2021 season will be a light at the end of the tunnel, and in the meantime urge you to observe the latest guidance from the CDC and the State of Connecticut. Governor Lamont has recently issued a call for volunteers, which you may register for here.

We wish you all the best until theatre brings us together again.
