New Plans for Winnipeg Jewish Theatre's 2020- 2021 Season

posted here Aug 1, 2020

Dear WJT Community,

Thank you for your continued support of Winnipeg Jewish Theatre. 

Because of the current public health crisis, we have changed our plans for the upcoming season. Starting in January, we will continue to present the season that we announced, but in a slightly different order. 

  • WJT will return in January with Becoming Dr Ruth, from January 28 to February 7. Mariam Bernstein will reprise her award-winning turn as everyone's favourite sex therapist, whose life story is an inspiration. We will plan for reduced capacities and social distancing in the theatre, if required.
  • Next up is Actually, from March 4 - 14. Anna Ziegler's thought-provoking play focuses on Amber and Tom, two freshmen in their first year at Princeton, reliving a night they spent together that altered both of their lives. Again, the theatre's capacity will be reduced, if directed by the Provincial Government.
  • A year after it was to debut, Narrow Bridge by Winnipeg playwright Daniel Thau-Eleff will play the Berney Theatre from April 29 to May 9. Eight years in the making, this exciting world premiere tells the story of a unique spiritual and religious journey. It is our sincere hope that we will be back to our theatre's full capacity when this show debuts. 

This is the best-case scenario for WJT's 2020/21 season. This change of dates and play order will allow WJT more flexibility to adapt to the safest practices and social distancing protocols as they become specified by the government.

Because of the continual uncertainty, WJT will only sell single tickets next season. Tickets for each performance will go on sale two months prior to the first performance of each show. You can guarantee your seats beginning two months before each show. We'll send you a reminder email when tickets go on sale.

We are extremely disappointed to not be opening our season with the wildly acclaimed production, Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story. WJT remains committed to bringing the show to our Winnipeg stage soon. In its place, WJT is producing So New: A Digital Festival of New Canadian Jewish Plays in the fall. We’ll be sending further information out about this in September.

I look forward to being back in the theatre and sharing our new season with you. To order tickets, please call 204.477.7478 or visit us at WJT.ca for more details on next season.

Sincerely,

Ari Weinberg 
 Artistic & Managing Director
