SCRT Temporary Closure Extended to September 2020

SCRT Temporary Closure Extended to September 2020

From SCRT Executive Director Andrew Schneider
To Our Friends and Neighbors:

I wrote you on March 16th to let you know that we had made the difficult decision to suspend all events and performances until May 15th. As of March 31st, that closure has been extended to September.

We do not make this decision lightly and we appreciate the significant impact that these frustrating social and economic disruptions have on our community—including SCRT’s extraordinary and tireless staff and volunteers, and our fabulous community of patrons, sponsors, donors, arts lovers and advocates.

As a community center for the performing arts, we understand that public health is paramount and we urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by our public health officials. For the health and safety of everyone, we respectfully request that you follow CDC recommendations and stay at home if you are feeling ill. Social distancing is the best preventative measure available to mitigate the spread of the virus and save lives right now in Southern Colorado,—as well as to ensure the long term well-being of our friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens.

SCRT’s goal will be to rise from the ashes and continue fostering and cultivating the power of the performing arts to help us all feel connected…even as we distance ourselves to limit the spread of this virus.

Wishing you good health,
Andrew Schneider, Executive Director

P.S. To preserve SCRT’s cash while the company is dormant, my last day with SCRT will be April 15th. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me here while I am still in my post.

Thank you for your continued support.

SCRT relies 100% on the generous contributions of the Southern Colorado community at this time.

Your donations during the coming months will ensure SCRT’s chances to regroup.

Ways To Support the Community’s Health

As with other respiratory viruses, it is recommended people protect themselves and others by practicing everyday actions:

– Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
– Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
– Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
– Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
– Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
– Stay home when you are sick.

Don’t forget! Tax time creates a natural season of giving to support our work.

A new program allows you to use your state income tax return to make a big difference in our Community. If you’re due a state income tax refund, this state program gives you the opportunity to use some or all of it to directly support a local nonprofit that matters to you—like SCRT!

The new program, promoted through the ReFUND CO awareness initiative, lets you choose where your donation goes.

All you have to do is:

Decide how much of your state income tax refund to donate (all or a portion of it).

Enter “Southern Colorado Repertory Theatre” and our registration number [20083005705] in the “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund” line on your state tax return or tax software – or give just give this info to your tax preparer when you share your tax documents.

You can learn more details about the program at

Last year, Colorado returned more than $1 billion in refunds to 1.9 million state taxpayers. Imagine how much this could support local community causes like us across Colorado.

Because our important work is never done, we’re always in need of new funds to revitalize SCRT and recharge our work. ReFUND CO shows you how you can support our mission at a critical time of the year.

To learn more about upcoming events throughout the year, keep checking for additional information as it is unveiled!

With a variety of pricing options and packages available, there’s never been a better time to treat yourself and your loved ones to some of the best entertainment in Southern Colorado.

Feel free to contact our box office with any questions!

SCRT Box Office hours:
Monday – Friday (11am – 3:00pm)
131 W Main St, 719-846-4765

We’ll see you at the SCRT!
