Terre Haute Community Theater to reopen after 16 months

Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The Terre Haute Community Theater is planning to reopen after being closed for sixteen months due to COVID-19.

Those entering the theater will either be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test performed in the last 72 hours.

The theater is completely operated by volunteers, and is currently accepting auditions for those interested in performing. The main goal of the theater is to remain open, while continuing to keep everyone involved safe.

“As much as we hate to put in place these restrictions, it was really a choice of putting them in place or have to close the doors. We hope it’s temporary, we hope numbers will improve, and that we can ease those restrictions as time goes on as the season progresses, but at this point, we’re just trying to get back open, and give something that people can enjoy,” said A.J. Dinkel, president of the Community Theater.

The first show, Wait Until Dark, opens Friday, Sept. 17. A schedule of upcoming plays can be found here.
