Effective Friday March 13th at 5PM, the Charles R. Wood Theater will be closed through Tuesday April 14th at Noon. This decision is not one that was made lightly, but one that is necessary. Our community’s health and safety is of paramount importance and while we are saddened to halt the creative process – we must do everything in our power to prevent the spreading of COVID-19 and protect the well being of the thousands that would enter our doors over the next 30 days. Theater staff will continue to work throughout this closure and will work diligently to reschedule all affected events.

LIP SYNC BATTLE: Postponed until May 8th
WELCOME HOME, JOHNNY: Postponed until 2021
WINGS FALLS: Postponed until 2021
THE CRUCIBLE: Postponed until 2021

We will begin the process of refunding tickets to the above events without a new date over the course of the weekend. Should you wish to forego receiving a refund and make a donation to the theater or any of the other affected nonprofit groups to show your support during this difficult time, please contact the box office at (518) 480-4878 or via e-mail at

All other future events are expected to take place, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely. During this period of closure, tickets to future events will be available online or by phone Tuesday-Saturday 12PM-5PM. The box office will be closed for walk up sales.

Celebrating the 100-year anniversary of broadcast radio!
