We are deeply grateful for your support of the ACTC and the Lyceum during this unprecedented time, as we continue to do our part to slow the spread of Coronavirus. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been impacted by COVID-19, and we truly wish health and safety for you and your family.
In previous communication we made a promise to closely monitor COVID-19 updates and government mandates regarding the reopening of our theater. As hopeful as it is to see local businesses beginning to reopen under Governor Newsom’s Phase II plan, we have yet to receive official clearance from Vanguard and the Governor’s office to reopen the Lyceum Theater for our scheduled July events. We understand there are still many unknowns and plans continue to change daily, but in communication with Vanguard and ACTC’s Artistic Producing Director, we have made the difficult and unfortunate decision to cancel The Marvelous Wonderettes scheduled for July 2-27, as well as both ACCT Workshops.
The Marvelous Wonderettes will be postponed until Summer 2022, and ACCT’s workshops will be postponed until July 2021.
Regarding future events at the Lyceum Theater:
While there may be additional unforeseen scheduling changes, please know this is our commitment to you so that you may purchase your season ticket subscriptions with confidence: if performances are rescheduled or cancelled, you will always have the option to receive a full refund, credit for a future performance within our season, or donate the tickets to Vanguard’s Theatre Department and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value. Vanguard University’s ACTC is a not-for-profit organization and relies on community support to present high-quality performances, impactful education programs, and free community events. Please consider donating your tickets if you are able. Your donation will help us re-open safely and strongly as soon as possible.
Please know as we look forward to our upcoming 21/22 theatre season this fall, everyone at Vanguard and the Lyceum is working diligently to present a safe, healthy and enjoyable venue for us all to once again share the joy of live theatre.
This summer take a trip back to the bubblegum pop decades of the ’50s and ’60s when ACTC presents
The Marvelous Wonderettes!
This smash Off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In Act II, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!
