Our Town Postponed•延期

Due to the announcement of the extended State of Emergency Nagoya Players will be postponing the performances of Our Town scheduled for June 12-13th. 

Unfortunately, the spread of COVID-19 has remained a largely unpredictable and difficult to manage problem in Japan. When we re-launched this production late last year, the information available at that time indicated that the virus would be more under control by our current point in time. News of vaccine development and distribution was very positive and with the upcoming Olympics (still scheduled for summer 2021), we felt confident enough to restart the production. However, we now find ourselves in a very troubling situation and by many measurements the virus situation has gotten worse. It was our sincere hope that the State of Emergency would be lifted in time for the show. But, given the current circumstances we now feel the right course of action is to postpone the show to a later date.

We have already begun the process of re-booking the show. We are targeting a date in 2022 when, by that time, we truly hope COVID-19 will no longer be a major concern. 

We sincerely thank all of our Show Supporters and theater patrons for their support during these very challenging times. Full refunds will be issued to everyone who has already purchased their tickets.

It saddens us greatly to disappoint our fans, followers, Cast and Crew. The show is in fact ready for stage, a testament to all the hard work and sacrifice the Cast and Crew have made. But for the benefit of everyone’s safety and enjoyment we will have to wait a little bit longer to present it to you.

Nagoya Players will remain active while new plans are being made for our 2022 season. We have a number of projects, events and shows in development. Please follow us on social media and check out our website for future updates.
