Dear Gallery Family,
These are challenging times in our community. Last night, Gallery Theater’s Board of Directors decided to postpone the opening of Proof and cease rehearsals for Man of La Mancha. Our 2020 season is on hold. The costume shop is closed until further notice.
During the COVID-19 emergency, Gallery Theater will proceed with caution and initiate productions when we feel it is safe to do so. We will comply with all mandates from our city, county and state officials. Please check our website or Facebook page for updates to our season.
If you purchased a ticket for Proof or Man of La Mancha, you have three options: 1) Donate your tickets to the theater – this donation will offset the production costs that have already been incurred and will assist with providing future productions. We will issue a you a tax-deductible receipt and a note of thanks; 2) Request a flex pass for a ticket at a future Gallery show; or 3) Request a refund of your purchase. Our staff is available to help you with whatever option you choose. Please contact them at (503) 472-2227.
Arts are incredibly important to the health and well-being of our community members. Our theater will suffer financially during this crisis when we cannot bring the joy of live theater to our patrons. Would you consider giving an extra gift to Gallery Theater at this time? Your tax-deductible contribution would enable us to be ready to resume full operations once COVID-19 is behind us.
This pandemic has reminded us of how precious the human condition and our sense of community are. We look forward to a time when we can see you at Gallery Theater to explore both.
Serving the theater,
President, Gallery Theater Board of Directors
At Gallery Theater, the safety of our patrons, volunteers and staff is a top priority. We are keeping a close eye on the evolving Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, and will be following the protocols recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to keep our community safe.
We are taking recommended prevention and response measures, including:
We have implemented prevention measures, including increasing the frequency of our cleaning. We’re disinfecting seat arms, door handles, hand rails and other surfaces daily.
Our bathrooms are well stocked with soap.
We encourage all staff members and volunteers to stay home if they feel unwell.
Our leadership team will continue to actively monitor the recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and OHA and implement best-practices accordingly.
We are offering exchanges: If you don’t feel well enough to come to the theater, we will exchange your tickets for another performance at no additional fee.
Contact us at 503-472-2227 or
We understand that this is a quickly changing situation. As of now, we are “business as usual.” If that changes, we will communicate this to patrons, volunteers and staff as quickly as possible.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
