New Bern Civic Theatre is still here after being closed down for most of the 2020 season and is slowly easing back into what is hoped will be a re-opening.
The community theater released its annual report today and can be viewed here.
“With limitations still in place for performing arts venues, NBCT is focusing on smaller events to keep the community entertained while we navigate through the pandemic,” the community theater said in a statement.
“Walk-In Bathtub is ready to help us celebrate the season of love with another Improv-a-Thon in celebration of ‘Galentine’s’ Day, Saturday, Feb. 13 and ‘International Fanny Pack Day’ March 13.”
Show times are 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 7 p.m., 8 p.m., and 9 p.m.
“The 2020 year, though challenging, was still productive with streamlining policies and procedures, cleaning up the warehouse, applying for grants and SBA loans, and making small but much needed repairs to the buildings. Some of the repairs will include new line sets, stage renovation, and repairing our green room,” NBCT said in a news release.
“With vaccines being administered and restrictions easing, we are looking to re-open for live performances sometime late spring. Our priority is the safety of our patrons and volunteers and will continue to follow N.C. COVID guidelines set by the Governor and DHHS.”
New Bern Civic Theatre has been part of the New Bern Community for over 50 years, performing hundreds of shows for audiences both young and young at heart.
Besides providing local entertainment, New Bern Civic Theatre focuses on enrichment, empowerment, inclusion and education.
