As of October 18, 2020, the Greenbelt Arts Center anticipates a continuing emphasis on digital programming through March 30, 2021, though we reserve the right to consider reopening if circumstances with respect to COVID19 change significantly for the better. Further updates to this status will be posted here.
Thank you.
Dear GAC Family and Friends:
As part of our ongoing commitment to being a safe environment, the Greenbelt Arts Center wanted to clarify our operating status.
We are following the City of Greenbelt’s closure – as long as they remain closed, so will we. We are assessing our status on a monthly basis and are keeping informed internally.
We decided to announce our planned season as a way to give some hope for the future, and to show that we do have plans in place for when we are able to open up again.
At this point, we are operating under the assumption that the facility will most likely be closed through at least Sept. 30, 2020, with the possibility of extending beyond that. As such, we will be moving our planned production of “Next Fall”, directed by Eric Scerbo, to our 2021-22 season.
The Rude Mechanicals’ production of Romeo and Juliet has been moved to an online performance – please check back here for more details. All future shows on our 2020-21 schedule are pending our ability to safely audition, rehearse, and perform them.
Until we can all gather again, please stay safe, wear a mask, and wash your hands.
Pamela Northrup VP Programs, Greenbelt Arts Center
Dear GAC Family and Friends:
Out of concern for the safety of our community and the GAC team, the facility is closed until further notice (at least through June 30, in following City of Greenbelt’s closing of city facilities).
We have made the decision to cancel our planned productions of The Children’s Hour and Arcadia. We hope that we will be able to bring them to you in a future season. The decision has also been made to reschedule the Rude Mechanicals’ production of Romeo and Juliet to next season. Please continue to check back here for updates – we will post when we have them.
Please take care of yourselves and each other. We look forward to seeing you when the health crisis is over. If you have the ability to do so, please donate online at this link, or by mail at
Greenbelt Arts Center PO Box 293 Greenbelt, MD 20768-0293
This is a very tough time for community theatre, and every little bit helps.
Another way to help us is to purchase gift certificates for yourself, family, and friends to use when we reopen.
Wishing you all the Best, Win and the Entire GAC Team
