Toronto: Tarragon Theatre temporarily suspends its 2019/20 season

Saturday, March 14, 2020

Tarragon Theatre is committed to the safety, health and well-being of everyone in the Tarragon community. Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, Tarragon Theatre has decided to temporarily suspend our 2019/20 season.

In doing this we follow Toronto Public Health and Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines against public gatherings and join our colleagues from cultural organizations in Toronto and across North America taking similar steps. Says Artistic Director Richard Rose, “The health of our patrons, staff, artists and volunteers are our primary concern. The Tarragon Board of Directors and management have, after careful consultation, come to the difficult conclusion that a pause in the season is necessary.”

At this time:

  • The production of Human Cargo’s The Runner will close on March 15th.
  • The production of Three Women of Swatow is currently postponed until a later date.  We will continue to follow Toronto Public Health guidelines as notifications around COVID-19 are updated.

Patrons with tickets are asked to contact the Tarragon Theatre box office to make alternate arrangements at 416-531-1827 or and one of our Patron Services Representatives will be happy to help you. As a not-for-profit theatre we ask for your support and hope that you’ll consider one of the following options:

  • Exchanging your ticket(s) to a future performance. All Exchange fees will be waived.
  • Providing you with a credit for the value of the ticket(s) for future use at Tarragon Theatre.
  • Donating the value of your tickets back to the theatre for a charitable tax-receipt.

If none of those options are possible we will offer a full refund for your purchase.

Tarragon`s Box Office will be open reduced hours from 10am - 5pm Mon-Fri during the suspension. Please contact us during those hours to adjust your tickets.

Tarragon will continue to follow recommendations from the health authorities. Please visit Toronto Public Health’s website for further information on how to protect yourself and aid in the effort to slow the spread of this virus.
